To make the perfect gin 'n' tonic you'll need:
- 25ml Hendricks. There's really no need for a double. It's a simple drink, don't ruin it.
- 100ml tonic. Honestly, the type tonic doesn't matter, as long as it's plain and ice cold.
- Two slices of cucumber.
Pop the ice cubes in a glass. Add the gin and top up with tonic. Stir well and then run a piece of cucumber around the rim and then pop two slices into your drink. That's it!
No more needs to be done, but it's the care and attention that goes into it that's important. Have you noticed how tonic in pubs is never cold? Or there's no lime? Those little things are important in a cocktail. Especially when it's as yummy as the G 'n' T.
