    That sounds refreshing John. Are you using a mixer as well?

    Always tonic Adam. I tried it with the aromatic tonic but it works best with plain for me.

    I’ll have to give it a go; I’ve found the aromatic tonics a bit overpowering.

    I like my gin clean and simple.

    Tanqueray #10 (I like it slightly stronger)
    Monkey 47 Bulldog and The Botttanist (Bruichladdich) are my favourites.

    Really enjoying the fever tree with bitters at the moment and a slice of pink grapefruit.

    But will happily take a Gordonís with lemon if offered!

    I think itís the perfect summer drink!

    Ok so how much tonic? Straight is a bit much for me

    3/4 tonic is too much. I'm using less and less tonic if it's a smooth gin. With a fruit or citrus is nice though rather than flavoured tonic. Angostura bitters bit can be a bit overpowering.

    I think I may finally have this CAD under control...

    Half and half at most! Nothing worse than going a pub and them filling the entire glass with tonic!

    I probably drink it 1:3 but MLW will have hers 1:2

    Ah not straight! I donít think I was clear, I meant that I donít like it in the big balloon glasses with fancy or flavoured gins, especially not with peppercorns or burnt Rosmary wafted over it.

    1:2/3 tonic is usually what I do (by eye).

    The fever tree tonic has it mixed in, I tried making my own and it was a disaster. Itís just a tiny amount of bitters, but it does make it look pretty and pink

    All spirits have to be straight for my taste no ice or tonics.

    Pink grapefruit bitters from the Cotswold Distillery offer an uplift to a plain G&T that is really rather nice...
