    Hotel I used to stay at in Barcelona regularly (Hotel Me) had a maddening approach to G&T serving. Each gin had to have a slightly different something or other in the glass. Half a grape and a sliver of ginger, a sprig of thyme and a slice of apple. That sort of thing. Annoying.

    Doesn’t sound awful, quite normal to use a garnish that reflects the botanicals in the gin. Gin Mare needs a savoury garnish like an olive or basil leaf.

    My vote is for Bombay. But then I get it cheap at work.

    Lime. And +1 for Fevertree tonic.

    Completely changes the ball game. if you haven’t tried it, please do so immediately (unless its 10am) You’ll never go back.

    Tried a few years back and went back Lime or Lemon, rather unsurprising the tasteless cucumber added nothing.

    Just for the update, finalising order for tomorrow now.

    Tanqueray is in the basket.

    Burnsides is a great way of getting drunk as you (I) only need a couple.

    Last time I got one in the pub it was £20!
    Ingredients:

    2 parts Gin
    2 parts Martini bianco (dry)
    1 part Martini rosso (sweet)
    1 teaspoon Cherry brandy
    2 drops Angostura bitters
    Lemon rind
    10 Ice cubes

    I add 2 extra parts of vodka to bring the alcohol content closer to the weekly recommended amount 😆

    I should add it’s not the fancy No 10 one, just the regular Tanqueray.

    Don’t worry that’s fine too way better than Gordon’s.

    Gordon’s might be getting a slating here but a few years ago, along with a couple of mates who declared themselves to be gin connoisseurs and particular fans of Tanqueray, I did a tasting experiment in the pub. It was a proper double-blind trial of Gordon’s vs Tanqueray with Schweppes tonic and guess what? All three of us preferred Gordon’s.

    Tanqueray was 50p cheaper, though 😛

    I’ve just invested in some Aldi gin to help commiserate my current rank fitness.

    Like I am going to post that, and give Houns a tipoff that I’m vulnerable.

    Christ. If your level is currently rank, mine must be well….whatever is several leagues below rank.

    Fair enough Jamie, it’s all relative, I’m thinking of bailing an Ironman in 4 weeks 🙁

    The gin will help tho.

    Drink the bottle of gin, and you’ll be up for it again.
