Got myself a bottle of tanqueray rangpur. Pretty good for a gin and tonic. What do you guys like in your gin and tonics?

Rarely drink gin. When I do, it's Tanqueray.

To let you know about my gin consumption, I still have bottles of gin from my wedding. Almost 9 years ago!

Was it Gilbey's? That has a shelf-life that will allow you to use it at your kids wedding. Not a gin guy at all. Tastes like pine needles. Or maybe, again, that's just Gilbey's.

Ohhh Gibley's that reminds me of one of the first times I got drunk. Being 15 and having the house to yourself for 10 days in the summer and opening that liquor cabinet for the 1st time. Its a horrid drink that and Beefeater could be sold as turpintine. If im drinking Gin its got to be Tanqueray.

Big fan of Bombay Saphire or Dogfish Head Jin. But that's me.

I'll take the regular Bombay white label over the Sapphire.

I too drink Bombay Sapphire. If it's not available I go with Beefeater before Tanqueray.

A well made gin and tonic is a fantastic drink. I used to bartend and I learned to make a fantastic G&T. Best way to do it is as follows:

Take a lime, cut it in half and squeeze it into the bottom of a 12oz glass. Toss the squeezed lime in the bottom of the glass and fill with ice. Toss in two shots of tanq/bombay fill to the top with tonic water.

The lime really makes the drink.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.
