What is its best mixer? What kind is the best?
but i also like Gin with Orange juice
lemonade plus tiny bit of sprite/tonic
although im drinking it straight these days
Gin and ginger beer / ginger ale is excellent. Less bitter than tonic, not too sweet like lemonade. It should be more widely drunk. I get some funny looks ordering it sometimes.
If it works out, it could be my drink.
I've never even heard of raspberry gingerale, but that sounds goooood.
Then you can start ordering it in bars worldwide.
i love having gin and lemonade when i go out dancing though. especially at the star and garter, where it's like drinking fizzy, saccharine paintstripper.
but equally straight squash is good too
I really fancy making some, but iv heard it takes about 3 months
it took a year and I'm afraid I can't comment on the taste because he wouldn't let me have it aged about 13. Spoil sport.
But yeh, takes fucking ages.
this should eb a gonvernment asbvert i rthink
can't handle the bitter
Or, add rum, vodka and tequila, top it up with the same amount of ice tea/lemonade and a dash of angostura bitters. Top with fresh lime.
voila, Long Island Iced Tea. Happy hangovers and screwing people you never met before.
Gets me a very nice kind of drunk and doesn't leave me hungover. Your concoction sounds like a monster. I always thought Long Island iced teas were pansy drinks?
super refreshing and makes me feel a really nice warm fuzzy kind of drunk.
need better adjectives.
Pour a small amount of gin in a clean chilled crystal tumbler.
Take a sip, upend it in the sink and wash out the glass in warm water, dry carefully and fill it with a liberal measure of malt whiskey & a couple of chunks of ice.
Cranberries, Blackcurrants etc. all bitter fruits work fairly well with gin.
Sloe Gin is a different animal. My gran used to make an Old school version from the damson and plum trees in her garden.
-I’m glad I’ve still got my eyesight, and that she took that recipe to the grave.
Kilner jars, spring water, fruit, Sugar, heat.
I still bear a scar on my shin thanks to her post life pickled walnuts.
and I just finished making some Elderberry wine.
On similar matters I'm starting the next batch of Old Doverhouse chutney tomorrow. I wish work didn't have to interfere with my acting 40 years older than I am and lording it up round Manchester like I'm Delia Smith.
am I wrong?
is the correct way to make a dry martini by the way, (for all prospective barmen/women) then add whatever the customer wants
is where its at.
Only in equal measure though. Otherwise, never EVER drink Gin.
2. bitter lemon (slice of lemon)
with a squeeze of lime.
