Bartender Top Tips

Take a break from the norm & persuade the rain to stop this summer by creating your own personal Gin & Tonic expression. Forget the usual expensive limes with huge air miles attached to them for your ‘G&T’ – opt for a cooler, more sophisticated Gin & Tonic choice with more local fruits, herbs & spices as a complementing garnish to enhance your choice of gin & tonic combination.
