Salted and spiced, this G&T is quite unlike its buttoned-up British cousin. I enjoyed one on Coqueta's outdoor patio recently, and felt instantly transported to the squares of Barcelona–not at all a bad place to be!


lemon twist
sprig of rosemary
pinch of sea salt
1 caperberry
2 arbequina or other small, mild, aromatic olives
2 oz Plymouth gin
4 oz tonic water

Fill a rocks glass with ice. Rub lemon twist and rosemary sprig around rim and drop into glass. Add a pinch of sea salt, caperberry and olives. Add gin and stir to combine. Top with tonic.

The beauty of gin & tonic is what an uncomplicated drink it is; this recipe does include a few more ingredients, but it's equally easy to assemble. I adore Fever-Tree tonic for this and any other sipper, but any high-quality tonic will do the job–cheers!
