How to drink Gin Tonic this summer

(Best Gin and Tonic Recipe by Drizzle and Dip)

Okay guys; let’s get serious at this point. Let’s talk about alcohol. I bet one half of you will think that I will lecture them about something, and the other one is probably happy that I’m talking about the real stuff for a change. Truth is, I was never a person to have a complicated relationship with alcohol, I never had this craving of drinking myself into oblivion but on the other hand I tend to look askant at people who don’t drink at all. It’s they’re choice, don’t get me wrong here!

I’m more of an aficionado, and that means I like to savour every sip of the beverage I’m drinking, may it be a good glass of wine or a cocktail. Beer is a whole different subject. You cannot savour beer, it’s almost like a thirst quencher in my opinion (and it gets stale if you wait for too long). So lately (okay for about half a year) I kind of took an interest in this whole gin-and-tonic thing going on, which I never understood because I just didn’t like the bitter taste of the tonic water before. I’m not a big fan of those sweet cream cocktails either (I was 18 when I drank those), so a bit sourness was actually quite welcome for me, and surprisingly I became more and more accustomed to the bitter taste and really came to like the freshness. Here I am, following a cocktail trend. Don’t care. What I do care about, or what I’m curious about are the different ways to work with gin, so I wanted to have a look at that. It’s a perfect summer drink, right?

I always imagine sitting on the beach or at a place with this great view, a light breeze in my hair and some music in the background while sipping one of those. Can you see it as well? I will definitely try one of those, or all of those!
