In my opinion, no Beach Week would be complete with out a recipe for the perfect Gin & Tonic. Sweet, citrusy and a little bit woodsy from the spices in the gin, a cold G & T says summertime like no other cocktail I know. My father-in-law happens to make the best G & T’s around and I took pictures of his super secret process.
First cut a lime into 1/4 inch rounds. Fill a glass with ice. Only use the best ingredients. Juicy limes, Bombay Sapphire Gin and Schweppes tonic water (Richard likes the mini bottles of tonic best.)
Pour the glass 1/3 full of Bombay Saphire gin. The golden ration is 1/3 Gin to 2/3 Tonic.
Now add the tonic water, fill up the rest of the glass.
Cut each lime round in half and squeeze one lime half into the drink.
Yep, lime squeeze close up. I actually like mine with one more lime half squeezed in but it’s a matter of taste.
Now here is the super secret part that makes these G & T’s so great. Stir the lime into the drink with the knife used to cut the limes. Brilliant.
Done. Now take yours out to the porch and enjoy.
