Who else made the most of World Gin Day on Saturday? It's fair to say I indulged. Is there anything a G&T won't make easier? The lovely people at Bombay Sapphire were kind enough to introduce me to their brand new, super premium, small batch distilled Star of Bombay a while back, which I can confirm is delicious and have since converted to, so G&Ts at home are extra smooth and glorious (helped too by the fact we now justify splurging on Fevertree).
I forgot to share this nice infographic advance of World Gin Day but it's just as insightful afterwards. Impressive that 65% of the world's gin is drank as a gin and tonic! And that Spain has the largest population of gin and tonic drinkers — with my efforts, I'd have sworn it was Clapton...
Method: Place ice cubes into an empty glass and stir rapidly until the glass is chilled. Add the Star of Bombay and stir several times to chill liquid slightly. Add tonic water. Add the orange zest.
