This will taste like juice, but bear in mind that the loss of use of both legs and mouth can be very much a reality when you drink these for a prolonged period.
Will make roughly 4 long drinks:
ice (crushed in a strong plastic bag)
1 cup of gin
1/4 cup cherry brandy
1/4 cup lemon juice
slices of lime
1 tablespoon fresh mint (roughly chopped)
Fill a large jug 3/4 full with ice cubes. Add the gin, brandy, lemon juice and mint and top up with soda water. Stir thoroughly. Pour into long glasses and “display” a slice of lime and a cherry on top to your best artistic ability.
