Could Do Better

I don't drink a lot of gin, but I've had my fair share of G&Ts over the last few years, so I knew what I was hoping to experience when I tried this alcohol-free 'flavoured drink'.

Unfortunarely, for me, it didn't really deliver. I don't know whether it's because I was hoping for the full Gordon's experience, or whether, because of the nature of the ingredients (which are not simply gin and tonic water), it just felt a little too artificial. Either way, as a reasonably pleasant alternative to overly sweet soft drinks it's perfectly adequate, but as a replacement for a proper G&T I'm not so sure.

I tried the grapefruit variety which certainly packs a citrus punch - if a little too on the sour side, especially when paired with the bitterness of the 'tonic'. However, I didn't really pick up on the gin flavour at all. Perhaps I just wasn't tuned in, alternatively it may be just a little too subtle to get noticed amongst the other flavourings.

I expect, if you're a big fan of Gordon's & tonic, you're probably going to end up a little disappointed with this. If you happen to be avoiding alcohol and find one of these on a night out give it a try, if you fancy. But I think there are probably better options, even if it's just a better quality or flavoured tonic water and ice.
