With a twist of cucumber.
Depends whether I feel like cucumber or citrus.
Have you tried their Orbium? Trying to decide whether to pick up a bottle or not.
I rarely drink gin on its own. I like it in Martinis and obviously in Gin and Tonics. So, I tend toward London Dry's. My favorites are:
1. Boodles (so sad they changed the bottle design, though)
4. Lord Astor (the house brand at Astor Liquor store in NYC)
5. Seagram's. Look: it is dirt cheap, but it is clean and makes a nice, crisp, no-nonsense American Martini. Try it!
I also like Plymouth, occassionally, but I find it makes for a thicker, warmer Martini somehow.
My kind of man and my two favorites! Never tried Orbium.
Tanqueray . Gin and tonic with a zesty dill spear.
My gin is whiskey
and tonic, double, tall, extra lime.
None, can’t stand the stuff personally
I once drank a good part of a bottle of gin mixed with orange soda pop. It was really very good.
Blue Coat is yummy!
New Amsterdam is the go-to. Boodles is second most used around here. Other than those I tend to get something local or experimental when I can. Barrel aged gins are great. My most recent favorite is CAORUNN.
2 oz Hendricks gin
.75 oz lime juice
.5 oz simple syrup
Shake gin, lime juice and simple syrup in shaker with ice. Pour over fresh ice in highball glass with muddled cucumber slices in bottom. Garnish with slice of cucumber and lime. Add a pinch of sea salt and serve.
Bombay sapphire and tonic with a twist of lime
Beefeater and pineapple juice
London Dry Gin for me: Tanqueray, Bombay, Gordons, and if I want to spend a bit extra.....Plymouth. Finding out good tonic makes a better drink. About 1/4 wedge of lime. On a hot day very good.
I am with ya buddy. Hendricks is great. Boodles is good too.
Finally a topic I can weigh in on. Hendricks on the rocks with a lime is my “I’m wearing a tie in a fancy restaurant drink”. Beefeater for gin and tonics. Bombay Original or New Amerstdam for when I want a drink on the rocks at home.
And of course a shot of well gin at the bar when you want to make your friends gag and think you’re psychotic.
Also for cocktails my two favorites are a Southside and Corpse Reviver #2 (if I really want to get complicated with my drink order.)
Tanqueray, Bombay, Gordons, Plymouth, New Amsterdam, Hendricks.
I'm not all that picky as long as it is Dry and not too flowery.
