Gin and tonic, resurgent in London
LONDON, England — Gin and Tonic, once frowned upon by those in life's fab and fast lane, is making somewhat of a comeback — this according to Beefeater International Brand Ambassador, Tim Stones.
"People are drinking less but are drinking better" and this is, it would appear, where Beefeater London Dry Gin and Beefeater 24 have once again found favour.
Indeed, at a tasting this afternoon at One Great George Street the Beefeater Royal London Punch created by the world's foremost authority on Gin, Desmond Payne, got the thumbs up from many.
Steady your nerves ahead of the Olympics with your own pitcher.
We share the ingredients:
- 1 part Beefeater Gin
- 1 part Sweet Vermouth
- 1part Dubonnet
- 2 parts Pomegranate Juice
- 2 parts Traditional homemade lemonade
- Chill, strain and pour
Beefeater International Brand Ambassador Stones discloses the many ingredients: Juniper; Angelica Root Seeds; Licorice; Orris roots,; almond; lemon peel and Seville orange peel, that go into a single bottle of Beefeater Gin.
Add Chinese Green Tea; Japanese Sencha Tea and grapefruit peel, for the Beefeater 24.
