Who enjoys a Gin?

Post by whiteswan »

Not my cup of tea really but there are a few gin drinkers on here....

'Masons' of Yokshire is probably the only one I enjoy occasionally

Back in the day when parents were out a mate and I used to go through the spirit cupboard and make up cocktails. I suppose at 15 years old we should’ve had better things to do.

I like it in a massive bowl glass with crushed ice and lemon. But it has to be hot. Like cider it doesn’t appeal otherwise. The weather not the drink before some clever twat mentions it 😁

I like a gin & tonic, loads of ice & a slice of lime lovely & refreshing. More of a Guinness drinker but gin would be my go to spirit. A glass of good port at the end of the evening goes down well too.

Not my favourite but as I said in a proper drink thread, Ophir is nice, well, several large ones.

I'm a lapsed bitter drinker and like a good red wine but I will drink vodka and a good dark rum happily. Gin makes me feel sick with that after taste and awful smell. Whisky burns too much due to my condition

"Proper drink thread" indeed mc

But the Ginnies needed their own thread as we on the proper drink thread were being infiltrated ;-)
