Ginuary 20th: Piccadilly Circus.

I started my day at 4:45am in Melbourne when my alarm went off for me to get to the airport, and I ended my day at 10pm when I got home from work in Hobart. Suffice it to say, I am exhausted. I’m very grateful to my past self for hoarding away a delicious limited edition mixer. 

Piccadilly Circus

  • 30ml gin (I used Tanqueray)
  • Schweppes Orange Grapefruit & Bitters
  • squeeze of lime
  • slice of grapefruit
  • sprig of mint

Pour gin over ice. Top with Schweppes, finish with the lime squeeze and garnish with grapefruit and mint. 

  

This one’s a little confusing to me, if only because a fairly simple mixer recipe is set out like a cocktail. It really is just the gin and the mixer; the other things mostly make it pretty? It doesn’t matter, I’m too tired to argue and this mixer basically exists to be put with gin so I’m more than happy to do that.
