Well, summer may now be officially over, but I’ve found a sunshine-y drink I’m planning to stick with right through the year! The ‘G&Q’, which is mixed using Qcumber – a gorgeously crisp soft drink I came across very recently, is my new favourite tipple.
Typically, I like the tart and rather bitter taste of tonic water with my gin, but Qcumber is a little softer and bursting with a cucumber taste that isn’t at all artificial, and nor should it when according to the Qcumber website, it contains 100% natural ingredients (and very little in the way of calories – bonus!)
Sadly, I’m off to Australia on Tuesday – for good! – so unless Qcumber start shipping their tasty little drinks over to the other side of the world (I might send Qcumber HQ an email now, actually, I can be very convincing!), I’m going to have to wait until my next holiday here in Britain to get my G&Q fix.
Do you like to deviate from the classic gin-and-tonic recipe? If so, what’s your mixer of choice? Let me know!
