It was Anya who started me off on this particular tack. She had been talking to someone at a work Christmas function a few weeks ago, who happened to mention that he made his own tonic water. She later told me about this chance conversation, and I was intrigued by the possibility. I’m very fond of gin and tonic as a drink, and I instantly resolved to try this out. So, I read up about what was involved and I completed my first batch of tonic water over the Christmas holiday. I was very impressed with the results – it turns out that it’s astonishingly easy to make and is well worth the effort. You can read a post about the whole process over on my blog.
Now, I know that Anya shares my love of a good G&T, but I’m also pretty sure that she’d never dream of trying to make her own tonic water without being pushed a little. I’m sure she will enjoy the results, so I’ve decided to give her that push, and set this as her next formal challenge.
Make the ultimate gin and tonic using your own, home-made tonic water.
