No need for tonic water or gin in a vodka gimlet...

Not sayin' it's the best...but my "go to" Gin is Bombay Sapphire.
Often straight, sometimes with Fresca. At a restaurant I'll do with tonic...'n lime or lemon. But at home, straight, or Fresca if I feel like cutting it.

Old school TnT,
Tanqeray and tonic (schweppes). It's the two or three hunks of lime that does the trick imo.

Little ice please

Botanist is my fallback .... I do enjoy Gin and Tonic's but if I am mixing tonic I dont care about the quality of the Gin as much ... can be a Hendricks for a G&T

I know its early - but could have one right now since we are taking about it

If you haven't tried Conniption Gin from Durham Distillery, you are missing out.

G&T... need a dry gin. Tanqueray, Monkey 47 Dry, Gordon's... used to drink Hendrick's every night but got sick of it after a few years. Now, if you put a couple lychee on top and do a martini with hendricks, that's a winner.
