Whether shaken or stirred, gin is made for summer!
Complex, slightly bitter, and totally refreshing, there is no end to the creative cocktails you make with this very shippable spirit.
We like to keep it simple though, so we can savor the season without much fuss and enjoy a G&T as soon as the sun is over the yard arm. Here is our current favourite, grapefruit gin and tonic.
Grapefruit Gin & Tonic
1 inch piece of grapefruit peel
1 teaspoon honey
2 ounces fresh grapefruit juice
4 ounces of tonic water (preferably high-quality such as Fever Tree)
Mint leaves and grapefruit wedges
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the grapefruit peel and honey. Add a handful of ice cubes, the grapefruit juice, gin and lime juice. Shake it up!
