Tomorrow is my Nicko's Birthday! He's turning the big 26. I am throwing a Grand Birthday Event! So, today, I'm going to share with you the receipe of one of his favorite drinks. I say new becuase before me, he didn't order this all the time. But now he likes it... as do I!
3 oz gin
5 oz tonic water
1 lime wedge
Glass full of water ice, or tonic water ice
Pour the gin and the tonic water into a highball glass almost filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Garnish with the lime wedge.
OK, now you are thinking... If you don't have a shotglass with oz on it, you can fill up the glass with ice, start pouring your tonic water and start counting... count 1 2 then on 3 you use your other hand to start pouring the gin. When you get to 5 you stop pouring both. You should be to the rim of the glass by the time you get to 5. Make sure you have an even and steady pour of both liquids. Most people like to garnish the drink with the lime wedge, but I actully squeeze two lime's in, rather than one.
Gin's to think about:
There you go! Our favorite drink! Hope you enjoy, and have a safe weekend.
