CLASSIC COCKTAILS


CLASSIC CLOUDY G&T

The perfect serve for this familiar favourite.

INGREDIENTS
  • 50ml Cotswolds Dry Gin

Fill a copa (balloon) glass with ice – more ice means it holds its temperature better and won’t melt as quickly. Gently pour the gin over the ice, and watch the pearlescent louche forming. Top with a splash of classic Indian tonic water, to taste.

EMBELLISH

A slice of pink grapefruit and a fresh bay leaf.
