Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic
The missus and I watched “[Kind Hearts and Coronets]” tonight, which put me in a mood for gin. Upon a recommendation from a couple of folks, I procured a bottle of **Hendrick’s** gin. I made a gin and tonic.Quick tip: I purchase six-packs of tonic water and ginger ale in 10 oz. glass bottles–this way I don’t have to have an open one or two liter sitting around until I feel like making a drink with one of them.
The **Hendrick’s** bottle recommends making a gin and tonic with cucumber. I was fresh out, but always have lime, so I made a traditional one. **Hendrick’s** has a nice hint of orange peel that went very well in the gin and tonic. It didn’t clash with the lime. I’m looking forward to making more with it, and having a couple of taste-tests between it and **Bombay Sapphire**. **Hendrick’s** is 88-proof and was around $33 for 750*ml* at my local.
