“This is insanely good!” said Sarah, taking a sip of her gin and tonic.
“I know, right?” said her friend, Michael. “I’ve never had anything like it before.”
They were sitting in a pub in the Cotswolds, enjoying a day out. They had all just finished a long hike, and they were looking forward to relaxing and enjoying some drinks.
The gin and tonic they were drinking was a special recipe that the pub had created. It was made with a combination of gin, tonic water, Suze gentian liqueur, Angostura Aromatic Bitters, and lime cordial. The result was a complex and refreshing drink that was full of flavor.
“It’s the Suze that really makes it,” said Sarah. “It gives it a bit of an herbal kick.”
“And the bitters add a nice depth of flavor,” said Michael. “I’m not usually a fan of bitters, but they work really well in this drink.”
They continued to talk and drink, and soon they were laughing and having a great time. The gin and tonic was the perfect way to end their hike, and they all agreed that it was the best they had ever had.
As they were finishing their drinks, the pub owner came over to their table. “I’m glad you’re enjoying our gin and tonic,” he said. “It’s a new recipe that we’re trying out, and we’re really happy with the way it turned out.”
“It’s delicious,” said Sarah. “We’ll definitely be back to try it again.”
The pub owner smiled. “I’m glad to hear that,” he said. “And if you like it, you can take the recipe home with you.”
He handed them a piece of paper with the recipe written on it. Sarah and Michael thanked him and put the recipe in their bags. They knew that they would be making this gin and tonic again soon.
They finished their drinks and left the pub. The sun was setting, and the sky was a beautiful shade of pink. They took a deep breath of the fresh air and started walking back to their car. They were all feeling happy and relaxed, and they knew that they would remember this day for a long time.
