    So Refreshing

    I college I started drinking gin and tonics. Gin and tonic themselves, and lime and ice, are all relative inexpensive, and they make a very refreshing, very classy, and classic cocktail. I've never had a bad G&T, and there have been some truly great ones. It all comes down to the...

    Kind of a Dangerous Drink Haha

    I love gin but I have a tendency to over do it. My mother calls it panty remover which I find mildly disturbing.

    I Like Gin and Tonic !!!

    But tell me this - can you really taste the difference when you miss out the gin?   Yeah of course you can.   But its great when you're trying to lose weight and just drink the tonic instead!!  Think of the calories you save - AND you don't get depressed...

    Make Mine A Double

    Yes yes yes, my drink of choice. Either Gin and Tonic with a lime or my other best friend, Tom Collins (with gin) and oh by the way it must be made with Bombay Sapphire.

    You Know What Else It Is?

    Liquid panty remover.  That's right.  Makes me horny as hell.  (Yah I know, doesn't take much)

    Mother's Ruin

    That's what it was known as! But I love it on a nice sunny day, by a canal in a pub garden in London. With the obligtary slice of lime. Yummy!

    Bombay Sapphire

    has to be my favourite but if I want a stronger gin  I like Tanqueray but I'm happy to settle for Gordon's most of the time.   We frequently refer to gin as Gordon's cousin when we're on hols as you can't always get the brand you like  - still after a few a...

    A truly marvellous drink.

    I used to despite them, but lately, I've been enjoying them at home. Not my drink of choice at the pub, but at home, it definitely is.

    Before My Time

    You get some funny looks ordering a G&T as a 23 year old guy... King of drinks though. An Englishman with a G&T in hand is officially the classiest human being in the whole damn room :P

    G&T :)

    I'm sure the plural ought to be gins and tonic, that sounds about right.I actually love tonic water on its own (I hope I don't get quinine poisoning), but there's nothing in my view so refreshing as gin and tonic on a hot afternoon, or just to help that little bit to unwind at...

    No Sticky Tables

    There was this great bar downtown when I lived out west.  It had these enormous wood-framed windows that opened to turn most of the table space of the bar into a giant porch.  You could smell the lake from there.  Technically, you could smell the buses, too, but you take what...

    Tonic

    Does anyone else notice more of a difference between tonics, than between gins?  I have started trying different tonics from both the liquor store and supermarkets, and see a big variation.  I think this deserves one now.

    My "Happy Drink"

    Gin makes me happy.  Plain old bubbly!  I have never laughed so hard as when I've been drinking gin.  In fact, I bought a bottle today.  Happy Holidays to me.  If the kids hadn't seen me buy it, I would have put it under the tree!

    Pretty Good Drink

    I love Gin and Tonics, along with Vodka and tonics, and I often switch back and forth between the two. I find G&T has a very unique texture and flavour that I can't get with any other drink, and that intrigues me to no end. Hard not to love a drink like that.

    Oh It's Gin, Gin, Gin, That Makes Us Want to Sin

    I have a perfectly good reason for loving gin. You see, I'm a nature person and I love junipers, particularly grey owl junipers. And since gin is made from juniper berries I feel it is very close to nature! I had my first taste of gin on a hot summer day when I was 20. It was...
