Gin and Tonic – This is an historic moment for me… this is the first time I’ve ever had a gin and tonic!  Seems like a common enough drink but like riding a horse or eating potato salad, it’s something I’ve never done… until right….now!  There, I’ve done it… eh, not too bad.. it’s got to be better than cold potatoes mixed with mayonnaise… *gag*

How to make a Gin and Tonic:

  • couple ounces of gin
  • few ounces of tonic water
  • pour it all over ice and add a slice of lime or lemon

Drink Tip: Drink heavily to avoid catching malaria… that’s right – British soldiers in India drank tonic water to help prevent malaria but since tonic water tasted so bad they started mixing it with gin to improve the taste… most drinks you mix to kill the taste of the alcohol…seems kinda ass backwards but they’re British, they can’t even drive on the right side of the road!
