Bombay Sapphire’s Guide to Unusual G&Ts

Bombay Sapphire’s Guide to Unusual G&Ts

Gin and Tonic—the embodiment of sophistication and style. A timeless option for any occasion. A drink so delicate, in fact, that a single creative twist can see it transform from a straight-up classic to a contemporary innovation. To offer up a few suggestions, we teamed up with the ever-refined ladies and gents at Bombay Sapphire gin to pay homage to this wonderful tipple by having them share their secrets for serving G&Ts with a difference.

The Ultimate Gin and Tonic

First, let’s get down to basics. If you want to serve up a clean classic, then there’s little else to it than the recipe below. The great thing about Bombay Sapphire is that it’s vapour infused with exotic, hand-selected botanicals, which gives it a smooth and complex taste. It’s this versatility that gives other ingredients the room to play. For now, though, just make sure the ingredients are super cold (store your gin in the freezer) and that you give the lime a little squeeze before dropping it in.

  • 45 ml Bombay Sapphire gin
  • 90 ml Premium tonic water
  • Serve over ice
  • Garnish with slice of fresh lime

Raspberry & Basil

Few people have discovered the magical marriage of raspberry and basil, but it’s a combo that comes into its own when set against the smooth, balanced backdrop of the Bombay Sapphire. Something this fancy shouldn’t be so simple!

Thyme is on Our Side

The subtle blend of thyme and Bombay Sapphire is almost as irresistible as the pun in our title—almost! The herb’s dry aroma and slightly minty flavor gives the drink a quirky but delicious flavour that’s guaranteed to wow your guests.
