Grapefruit Gin + Tonic

Difficulty: Easy

Serves 4

Well, we’ve somehow survived 2016 (nearly) and that means we have bloody earned a drink or two (or ten). My Grapefruit Gin + Tonic is such a fun drink to whip out over the festive season cos it’s fresh, fruity and bright. Plus you can whip up a batch in a few minutes, meaning you can spend more time drinking and less time prepping. Bonus.
