Gin & Tonic Reimagined:

1 ½ parts Bombay Sapphire East
3 parts Fever-Tree tonic water
Lime slice
Lemongrass stalk
Basil
Black peppercorns
Build all with cubed ice in large, Spanish-style wine glass. Squeeze one lime slice and add garnishes as desired.

*This preparation prevents the tonic from overpowering the natural botanicals, bringing the flavors of BOMBAY SAPPHIRE East to the forefront. When using this method, one can choose to highlight any of the 12 botanicals already found in the gin.
