OK gin and tonic fans, here is the holy grail:
I picked up a bottle of Q tonic water at the store the other day; while artisanal tonic water sounds kind of silly, I had heard good things about it. Sure enough, this stuff is awesome--less sweet than regular tonic water, with a really clean flavor. (Caitlin loves it too, so you know it's good!)
On the recommendation of a guy at our favorite local liquor store, my husband brought home a bottle of Plymouth gin. If you like gin, you must give this a try. To me it tastes like the quintessential gin--totally crisp and refreshing.
Mix them together (with ice and a generous wedge of lime, of course), and you have the perfect summer cocktail.
