Don't get me wrong, there's not much better than a cold, perspiring bottle of beer on a summer evening, or a pint of Guinness, or even a few speciality ales.
But a perfect G&T, with fizzing tonic, a slice of juicy lemon, and a generous slosh top-grade gin... that's a fine drink. I now make sure I always have gin, tonic, lemons, and ice in my flat, for when the urge hits (pretty much every evening these days).
Are you a G&T fan? What's the best gin? Do you prefer lime? Have you tried it with cucumber instead (it's really good)?
