The perfect Gin and Tonic

gandtMy key to a perfect G&T:  Hendricks and a slice of cucumber!  My good friend, Emily, taught me that.   I tried my best to enjoy them before, but realized I just couldn’t get past the smell of rubbing alcohol in other gins.

However, I will say it’s always good to give things another go, so over the weekend I tried a G&T using Tanquerey and it wasn’t all that bad.  But don’t worry Hendricks, I’ll always remain faithful to you.

They are very easy to make, but should you want the classic cocktail recipe here’s a great one.

And here’s a list of a few places in San Francisco to visit that I’ve heard have great gin cocktails (and the ones I’d try)…

Absinthe (Corpse Reviver #12)

Alembic (Charlie Chaplin)

Dosa (Bloody Marvelous)

And if you reeeealllly like gin, here’s a great book to pick up or perhaps gift.
