Do you like this oh so trendy drink?

If so give me ideas for new ones to try!!!

I love Monkey 47, Pink Peppercorn and Warner Edwards Rhubarb so they would be my current top tips... what are yours?

Parma Violet gin? Sounds intriguing and I can actually imagine it would work...

It's absolutely delicious, albeit incredibly drinkable. I can get through a bottle of it, with a Sprite mixer, within a very short afternoon.

I used to think it tasted rancid but I love it now! I definetly think it's an acquired taste - the best gin I've had is rosť gin, absolutely lush wub.gif.

Oh and for those of you who like Rhubarb gin or Rhubarb & Ginger gin, try it mixed with elderflower tonic and it is absolutely divine - this is officially my new D*&O.


Brett - I'm ordering some of that stuff, it looks awful and kind of like one of those cheap bottles of cocktails or 'alcoholic milkshakes' but it sounds wonderful.

My standard Gin is a Tanq No. 10. It's a solid allrounder I reckon.

Of the more specialty Gin's I've had, Four Pillars is so lush! Its got some great orange notes through it. Lovely. I'm also a fan of Eden Mill and not just because it's a couple of miles from home. Their Love Gin is critically acclaimed.



Fevertree is the only acceptable tonic for me. Love the Elderflower one

I have a bottle of their love gin in the kіtchen - itís not actually one of my favourites though if Iím honest, although I do like the bottle! Four Pillars sounds interesting, Iíll look that one up...

Oh and yes it has to be fever tree or nothing when it comes to tonic

I have tried MANY A GIN (the other half is obsessed) but it has never ended well. Such a lightweight.

Keep it classic and avoid the trendy stuff. Gordons or tanqeruay never fails to hit the spot lol
