    Edit: it has to be lime, not lemon.

    The Gordon’s, is it London or Export? The latter is lovely stuff.

    As to method, thin slice of lemon or lime, according to preference, and a good slosh of Fever Tree tonic. And three ice cubes.

    Broker’s Gin is supposed to be the good stuff, and pretty cheap too. That said I think you can only get it online.

    The Gordon’s as you need the extra £2 for tonic and lemons.

    I have a separate budget for accessories.

    Personally, if getting very drunk I would avoid gin

    Explain.

    I will be buying limes. Might get some lime cordial, though.

    Tanqueray or Bombay Sapphire from that list beats the socks for Gordon’s as off tonic the best by far.

    So no love for the Plymouth? Comes in a fancy bottle!

    Good stuff too also better than Gordon’s.

    If your’e just gonna get stupoured what’s the point in spending good money! Just get Tesco value stuff which does the job, & if you use their tonic with a hint of lime it tastes like pop anyway!

    On the other hand you can not beat ‘The Botanist’ gin. Made by

    Because it’s possible to do both.

    Forget the tonic. To a double measure of gin, add a double measure of Campari and the same again of red vermouth. This is a Negroni. Chuck in a slice of orange if you’re feeling fruity. Enjoy.

    Lime. Bombay Sapphire requires lime.

    I like Hendricks too – with cucumber.

    Have you considered spiced rum.. bit more upbeat

    Plymouth or Bombay Sapphire for me. Former for a martini; latter for g&t. For tonic, really really avoid the cheap stuff. Good tonic makes so much difference.

    Plymouth is lovely, Bombay sapphire and tanqueray are good as well. If you have the choice of those don’t bother with Gordon’s.

    I prefer limes in my g&t as well.

    Premier Icon Drac

    Yup lime is my choice too.

    Oh and to make the Gin go down even easier may I recommended an alternative to Tonic.

    Tanqueray as it’s stronger and tastes better. Pop to Waitrose for some excellent cheap tonic water that’s not full of artificial crap.

    I tend to have Tanqueray in as it’s mcuh better for making Martinis with but Aldi own brand gin is cheap and good enough for g&t’s.

    Bombay or Tanqueray but as you are going to be getting drunk you may as well get whatever is in the biggest bottle for the price.

    What is this thing about not being able to get blasted on decent gin?

    I am going to get some mascara as well. Non-waterproof, so my tears wash it down my face.

    So far. Plymouth is in the lead.

    Plymouth gin here too. It used to be one of the stronger ones.very nice.

    I always thought Bombay and tanqueray were a bit over rated but with the exception of Gordon’s all will do the job! There’s some French gin in the independent wine shop in Taunton. Looking forward to trying that

    It’s worse than that, someone suggested that any old gin is fine for G&Ts. 😡

    I meant out of the two. Current bottles on our booze shelf are Bombay, Tanqueray and Plymouth. One of them is a bigger bottle for the same price 🙂

    Did used to have a cheap supermarket bottle to switch to when the night was getting fuzzy.

    Dear God man have some decency.

    Tanquery if its the export strength version with the wax seal on the bottle.
    Being anal I slice lemon and Lime very thinly and freeze it before adding to the G & T . Tall glass , lots of ice , double measure .

    This might just relate to vodka, and be purely anecdotal, but I always found I suffered a bit more the next day on cheapo supermarket booze.

    It’s this one, according to the Tesco website:

    Tanqueray all the way. Unless you prefer your gin with cucumber in, in which case Hendrick’s.

    Aldi apparently does some very good small batch gin, if you have one nearby…

    Didn’t say it was for me 😉
