    Lime, not lemon.

    Used to know a nurse whose favourite tipple was the Benygin.
    As in Benylin.

    I prefered Labiton Cough Syrup and vodka, personally.
    Speedier 🙂

    Try it with fresh mint instead of lime. Particularly good with Hendricks that way.

    Tonic, lemon and ice or do you have the beast in a different way?

    Lime for me too. Don’t ruin good gin with bad tonic. That’s one of the reasons we drink http://www.sixoclockgin.co.uk , it has a matching tonic.

    Hendricks with fever tree tonic and a wedge of lime, lime rubbed round the rim of the glass first and a load of ice.

    Lots of ice, crushed lime that’s also rubbed around the ring for extra tang.

    It’d make my ring tang as well if I’d did that. Not sure how it improves the drink experience though! 😉

    Bottlegreen Elderflower Cordial in a normal G&T is pleasant.

    In a herbaceous led gin (like Hendricks) try Monin Gomme, Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur, fresh lemon juice and lots of ice.

    Gin, lime and tonic strictly no lemon. Ice in glass, good measure of gin in the glass, wedge of lime run arrounD the rim of the glass then squeezed and dropped into the glass then at tonic to taste.

    Generally I drink bombay sapphire however having tasted some bath tub gin I will be looking for that next time.

    I’ve done a fair bit of gin experimentation over the years 😀

    I don’t like the stuff myself, but am gin butler for my partner, pre-frozen slices of lemon and lime, removing any need for ice and the 150ml ‘mini’ cans of Schweppes is just enough for a glass/serving and means you don’t have flat tonic sitting around in the fridge.
    Probably have the gin snobs shouting from the the roof tops, but she prefers Bombay Sapphire over Hendricks. Oh and my uncles says to swap the tonic for ginger beer, but her indoors refuses to try it 😀

    Leaving it in a bottle for two months with sloes and sugar is my favourite method of preparation

    Two months? Needs to be at least a year.

    Actually really nice,I live on these, failing that very dry martini made with NoillyPrat ,with a twist, bruise the gin, in COLD glass. Put it in a warm glass and I’ll hide snakes in your house.

    Chase Williams gin is VERY nice, very ginny.

    If it’s a G and T, poured down a bar spoon so it stays bubble.

    Much better ways to drink gin though.
