Come Party With Me: Heroes Season Premiere — Drinks


What cocktail pairs perfectly with a traditional meat and mashed potato TV dinner? A classic gin and tonic served in a chilled glass. It's a simple, no-fuss drink that will nicely complement the menu for my Heroes season premiere party.

I'll also have a couple bottles of red wine on hand to enjoy with dinner. Water, beer, and sodas are a must for those who dislike gin. To look at the recipe for this uncomplicated cocktail,

Gin and Tonic

Ingredients

  1. 2 oz. London dry gin
  2. Tonic water (from a fresh bottle)
  3. 1-2 ample wedges of lime
  4. Plenty of cold ice cubes
  5. Highball glass

Directions

  1. Chill the glass. You may want to fill it with ice, then empty it and refill, as some bartenders do with a martini glass.
  2. Fill the glass with whole ice cubes. If you wish, take a wedge of lime and moisten the rim the glass with it.
  3. Pour the gin over the ice, which should be cold enough that it crackles when the liquor hits it.
  4. Fill glass almost to the top with tonic.
  5. Squeeze one wedge of lime into the glass. Drop the squeezed lime into the drink as a garnish if you like; it’s not necessary, but can add a bit of extra flavor. Serve.

Makes 1 cocktail.

One of favorite cocktails. Sometimes I add a splash of limoncello to it. My Heroes night will probably just involve pizza.
