Im all about a gin and tonic lately.
It helps cut the summer heat.

Extra lime. (about a half of one for me.)
Good gin. (shot…or two.)
Fresh tonic. (Sometimes I use ginger ale for a twist.)
Lots of ice.

Whats your summer drink?


Hope your summer is going well.

  1. You know mine. But if the gin is REALLY good (Hendrick’s or Canada’s own Victoria Gin) then skip the tonic and just toss two … or three… shots over ice. Proper rocks glass, please.

  2. Fresh, cold water is my summer drink. Nothing fancy, I know, so I have no recipes to share, but I did want to share my thoughts about this striking photo. The arrangement, quality of light, and stillness put me in mind of the 17th century Dutch artist Vermeer. I hope you don’t think that an odd association. He did wonderfully composed, mesmerizing interior paintings. Even his paintings of figures are like haunting still lifes. All this to simply say, I really enjoy your images, particularly the interior photos.

  3. I was just going to write how this reminds me of a Dutch still life when I noticed the writer above mentioned the same thing:) This is a stunning photo of my favorite drink – deconstructed…

  4. Beautiful, beautiful photo. g&t is always my summer drink of choice (made with Gordon’s gin, for sure), but right now it’s mid-winter in Sydney, so I’ve been reaching for a ginger hot toddy – whisky, ginger syrup, hot water, cinnamon, cloves and a slice of lemon.

  5. i’m not quite sure how i stumbled upon your website but, i’m really glad i did. your photography is so simple and beautiful. what you capture and how you capture it really ‘speaks’ to me in a way. is that a weird or cheesy thing to say? well, regardless…i wanted to tell you how absolutely stunning your photography is and how intrigued you have me.

    my summer drink is a vodka tonic; tons of ice, lots of limes wedges all mashed up, ice cold vodka and fresh, bubbly tonic…lightly stirred.

  6. What a beautiful photograph! I too love G&T’s This has been my summer drink for the past 40 summers 🙂 It has to be a good gin and I love a dash of Angostura Bitters in mine with a slice of lime or lemon. Must try the ginger ale twist. Thank you for sharing xx

  7. Yes, G&Ts definitely FTW. Agree with others cucumber can be good replacement for lime for some gins. Also occasionally like to use Bitter Lemon instead of Tonic – doesn’t go with lime though IMHO.
