    Hendrick's Gin

    Good stuff.

    Hendricks, so smooth you can drink it straight, but I prefer mine with Key Limes and tonic with a dash of Roses Lime juice.....

    I really like Barr Hill from Vt. Back to back will make Bombay Sapphire taste pretty bad.

    I have been traveling to Belgium for work about once a month...man do they know how to make some good Gin and Tonics with herbs, spices, and different botanicals...Hendricks is good. Also try Gin Mare, Hendricks's Orbium, Monkey 47, Roku, Opihr, Bombay Sapphire EAST (very different than Bombay Sapphire). Be sure to use a good tonic like Fever Tree.

    My current collection:

    Try mixing with combinations of Lemon, Lime, Juniper Berries, Cardamon, Cinnamon Stick, Star Anise, Saffron, Clove, Allspice, Fresh Basil, Fresh Mint, Fresh Rosemary, Fresh Thyme, Fresh Ginger Blue Berry, Strawberry, Cherry, Orange Peel, Hibiscus, Black Peppercorn, Dried Piri Piri Peppers, Bitters.



    A few of my favorites right I have been making at home lately:

    Gin Mare, Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic, Fresh Thyme, Fresh Rosemary, Lime, and Black Peppercorns

    Opihr, Fever Tree Indian Tonic, Lemon, Piri Piri Peppers

    Monkey 47, Fever Tree Citrus Tonic, Orange Rind, Cloves

    Roku, Tonic of your choice, 6 fresh cut Ginger Sticks, Lemon

    Lets see some of your guys favorite mixes...

    I keep a bottle of Bombay and a bottle of Hendricks in the freezer along with my martini glasses. The olives and vermouth are in the fridge... no ice needed.

    Put a drop of vermouth in the glass and swish it around, then dump it out... add the gin and two olives and let the party begin

    I really like the ideas listed in this thread. Here's one of my favorites with Irish Gunpowder Gin:
    Ingredients


    • 1.25 ounces Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin
    • 4.5 ounces Premium Elderflower Tonic water (any good tonic will do)
    • 1 thick wedge fresh red grapefruit
    • 3 raspberries on a skewer

    Sounds like a "Churchill Martini"; Winston said, "the only way to make a martini is with ice-cold gin, and a bow in the direction of France." Or in Kingsman where Eggsy orders a Martini while staring at an unopened bottle of vermouth. I'm not that anal about it. I do like you, swish it around the cold glass then pour it out. Gin and tonic I'm not too particular (Tanqueray or Bombay is fine) but for a Martini, I use Hedricks.

    I like Gin and Ginger Beer. Actually, Gin, Ginger Beer, a lime and some Mint is a great summer drink. Kind of like a cross between a Mojito and a dark and stormy, but with gin.

    It started as Moscow Mules but with Gin. But I added the mint a little later. So good I now have fresh mint growing in the yard.
