  • Sapphire Gin comes in a blue bottle so it must be for boys. (Or is it called Bombay Gin? Anyhow, it's blue with a sailing ship on it - sailing ships are also for boys).

    Stay clear of the pink gin though. Drinking that will lead to a few raised eyebrows in the club.

    The best G+T is Hendrick's and tonic with ice and a slice of cucumber.

    Sublime!

    When it's called gin a tonica, includes a six-second-pour, and is served by shimmying Spanish ladies, it's for the boys.

    It's for women or golf club bars.

    Man up and acquire a malt whisky habit. You won't regret it - if you live. (As someone once said about something else!) :wink:

  • It's a bit like pimms, in that it's only really drinkable by men in the afternoon during the summer!

    I ended up drinking near to two pitchers of rather strongly mixed pimms and lemonade (plus all the mint etc that goes in it) whilst thinking to myself "by, this isn't very strong. It goes down great". Trying to stand up to leave was quite difficult.

    You're bound to exagerate the amount you drank, if you got p1ssed on Pimms! :oops:

    Perhaps a Cinzano, or an Archers would be a more suitable tipple for you... :wink:

    but a pink gin was the navy drink - from Wikipedia -

    Pink gin is a typically English way of enjoying gin. It is widely agreed that the drink was first created by members of the Royal Navy, as a way of making Angostura bitters more enjoyable. [1]

    After reflection I see what you mean.

    Pimms isn't really drinkable, one quaffs (sp?) pimms!
  • Never trust a man who drinks gin and tonic as its the worst tasting drink in the world, seriously, whats wrong with you all :? . Sambuca tastes better than gin.
