    What kind?

    With tonic or not?

    Lime or no?

    For me, I'm about 1/3 of the way through a bottle of Barton's. It will do in a pinch.

    Also don't mind Gibley's.......However, if I am at a bar and don't wanna drop 30 bucks a bottle.......gotta be the Tanq.

    No you shouldn't try and treat an ingrown toenail with a blowtorch and plastic fork.

    We've given up on the ordinary utensils.

    We are now reverting to bottles of whiskey at the local saloon, and if someone around has a deer-knife of some kind, well then we will give it the old college try.

    Gin and tonic with a lime or two was my main drink at bars for years. I preferred Bombay Sapphire to Tanqueray.

    When looking to get drunk, gin and ginger ale mixes so well you can go half and half and chug it. It's like a 40-proof beer.

    Rule of thumb is gin and tonics are out once it gets cold enough you have to wear socks with your boat shoes. For martinis, I prefer Tanqueray.

    Real men use Beefeater in their martinis.

  9. I like Tanqueray for my G&T and Bombay for a martini but my go to summer drink is Tanqueray and cranberry. Yup I'm a gin and juice guy. Me and Snoop Dog.

    Beefeater is very good as well.

    I am going to try the Gin/Ginger Ale.

    My friends have been getting into gin and tonics with cucumber. I hate all three elements so I pass, but apparently it's very good.

    Either Beefeaters or Tanqueray - - on the rocks. Add an olive or two if you feel like having an hors d'oeuvre...

    When making gin and tonic in the summertime, put the gin in the freezer before making the drink. The gin will not freeze but it will keep the drink cold without melting as much ice into the drink.
