Grapefruit & Thyme G&T

Grapefruit & Thyme G&T


We all love the classic gin and tonic. I see it as the world’s chosen day-time drink – you know, people won’t squiff you out if you’re lying on a pool floaty with a cocktail at 12 o clock in the afternoon. And I’m pretty sure that’s why everyone loves gin!

But instead of the same old same old BORING gin and tonic, I’ve been looking for ways to spice it up ?

Meet my Grapefruit and Thyme G&T!

Most people drink gin and tonic with lemon, but did you know that a classic G&T uses CUCUMBER not lemon? I shifted slightly from the lemon with grapefruit here – and it ROCKED my world!!!!

Maybe it’s just the novelty of it (plus the thyme), but I adore this drink and now you’ll see me piling on the grapefruit in the supermarket instead of the lemons ? Go ahead and give it a try!!
