There are some things that you just shouldn’t mess with right? Like gin and tonic, for example – the traditional summer tipple invented way back when it was socially acceptable to imbibe alcohol to prevent diseases. So what could we possibly do with the good old G&T to up the ante? Well how does an infused gin and tonic sound? A little space age-y and scientific non? Not necessarily – and no expert mixology skills are needed, we promise. Meet Bombay Sapphire‘s Ultimate G&T. A refreshing and deliciously different take on one of our favourite summery sips…
Before you start…
To infuse your gin you will need to pour out 50ml from your 500ml bottle of Bombay Sapphire. After adding your chosen ingredients, replace the cap and leave the bottle in warm, dark place for 24 hours before drinking. Once your infusions are made, keep them in the fridge and they should last for a few months.
