A lesson in the perfect gin and tonic

Wine writer Victoria Moore believes there’s a need for instruction in how to create that quintessentially English drink.

In a chapter of the new book How to Drink she says;

“A G&T is the most dreadfully traduced of drinks, all too often made too flat, too weak, with one lonely ice cube sweating itself to an early grave and a slice of old lemon floundering on the surface like a corpse, whereas it should be effervescent and bright and so busy with ice that the bubbles have to fight their way up to burst with a splash and a hiss on the top.”

To put the situation right, she’s produced this pdf guide too.
