G & T with Papaka Road

The first and most obvious is the classic summer favourite, Gin & Tonic.

The two are made for each other, the clean taste of the gin enhancing the bitterness of the tonic is a subtle, refreshing flavour. It is the perfect early-evening drink.

Use a single serve bottle or can of tonic (nothing worse than half-flat tonic!)

Take a tall glass, fill with ice and add a generous measure of gin.

Pour in enough tonic to fill the glass - what you're aiming for is just over double the amount of tonic to gin.
Take a freshly cut wedge of lemon, lime or grapefruit and rub it around the rim of the glass before dropping it in your cocktail.

Stir gently & enjoy

     

    For a twist, squeeze lemon or lime over the ice, or try a garnish of basil & red pepper for a savoury finish.
