MAKE THE PERFECT D&T
WHAT MAKES THE D&T SPECIAL
When made well, few drinks can beat a great gin and tonic and the D&T is the greatest of them all.
Here’s how to make the perfect D&T:
First chill your glass by 2/3 filling a highball or your preferred glass with ice and stir for several seconds.
Roll a lime and cut 3 good wedges.
Pour off any melted ice water from your glass and squeeze one lime wedge over the ice.
Pour 50ml of Daffy’s over the ice and then, retaining maximum fizz, gently pour 100ml tonic water onto the inner side of the glass or down a mixing spoon.
Stir in the 2 remaining lime wedges, a couple of rubbed leaves of fresh mint and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
