Is that garnished with a carp?

No, just a large (white) grapefruit peel.

I strongly approve, FP.  In summer we've been known to mix up a batch of G&T in a vacuum flask and take it to the beach to enjoy with fish and chips.  One of the great food/drink pairings on a summer evening, that one.

The Bee's Knees (and it was) from the PDT. Very refreshing in our 104F heat. For some reason I can't insert the pic.

I'm with you, Leslie. In the same vein, my G&T was enjoyed with homemade fried chicken. Here is the drink at the park, enjoying the fresh air. There was coconut water from a freshly cracked coconut in the tiki cup, which I ended up adding to the G&T at some point, because why not.

This morning I had a Benton's Old Fashioned. Instead of bacon-infused bourbon, I used a few drops of Gangsta Lee'n bitters, which taste like smoked almonds with bacon. A fantastic brunch drink because it's breakfast in a glass, with maple syrup, orange, and bacon.

It's good to add things to a G&T. I like a drop of lemon cordial and/or St Germaine; coconut would be interesting to try.

As we speak I'm enjoying your Choke Artist. Lovely stuff.

Today and yesterday have been uncharacteristically warm in New Jersey after such a cool summer (but not warm enough in time to save the tomato crop).  So I warmed up with...I mean I cooled off with a Cana Brava daiquiri, a pineapple Cana Brava daiquiri.  Just because I could.  I used Small Hand pineapple gum in place of regular gum -- 8:2:1 of course.

 

In these proportions the pineapple was detectable but not exactly hard to miss.  Not a big success.

 

...Then this white mai tai called to me.  It's nice having a goto beverage I can't seem to tire of.  Particularly as long as the mint is holding out.
