The gin-season has begun...!Ol' Raj, Hendricks, Tanqueray, Bombay Saphire...!
It flows daily at YWP HQ. Great stuff... garnish with cucumber.
A bit too floral for my taste.
Very refreshing indeed. However, I am looking for a good recommendation for tonic. Any good references?
Unique flavor--cucumber I believe--yet it has vanilla overtones. Actually it's a shame to make a G&T with this stuff, it should be savored very cold and very unadulterated--in copious amounts of course.
To TWJ: The best tonic water I have ever had is Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water. The ingredients used are truly premium, for example, bitter orange from Tanzania, African Marigold, Lemons from Sicily and pure cane sugar. This tonic is the perfect compliment to a premium gin, however the cost is also premium. So I only use it when I'm mixing with Hendricks or Tanqueray. However, I feel that more often than not I find myself using canned Schweppes to accompany some Gordon's I picked up in London over Christmas.
Nothing at all wrong with Gordon's...in fact it is my favorite for G&T.
TWJ - Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water sounds pretty damn fine and I can't wait to get my hands on some... Whole Foods own brand of tonic water made with natural cane sugar and quinine was once heartily recommended to me by some gin soaked inebriate and I have to say does a nice job although one really can't complain too much about ye olde Schweppes...
