I haven't always liked the taste of gin. I used to be scared away by its overwhelming pine tree aroma and flavor. Not that I have eaten a pine tree, but you know what I mean. Then I had my first baby and my tastebuds changed. I suddenly enjoyed the taste of it! Weird! I haven't done much experimenting with gin & tonic recipes, but this is the best one I've come across. It definitely leans toward the limey side, which I am personally ok with.
Squeeze the juice from two limes.
Cut up the lime rinds and throw them into a pitcher. Pour four jiggers of gin over the lime rinds and mash.
Add the lime juice to the pitcher and stir.
Divide between two glasses of ice. Top with tonic water and enjoy!
