We used to at uni because lemonade was much cheaper! I do prefer tonic with it, but if you prefer lemonade what's the problem?

YADBU in my opinion, but that said, life's too short to drink anything other than what you enjoy !

Ttbb Sun 15-Oct-17 15:52:46

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose od drinkinggin?

Yabu, stop doing it right now.

I had this issue as I can’t stand tonic. Then I discovered Ginger Ale! Gin and ginger is now my tipple if choice

Drink it with whatever you like!
It's going in your mouth, no-one elses!
Ps I drink it with whatever is available- tonic, lemonade, coke, elderberry....grin

I just don't like anything bitter. I really enjoy it with lemonade. Lol

Rhubarb gin with ginger beer. Or gin with Fanta lemon smile

San Pelegrino lemonade or orange is really nice with gin.

I might give a soda water s try next time

mrssunshinexxx Sun 15-Oct-17 16:19:07

Yes op! Lemonade or ginger beer x

I love a G&T but some people hate bitter things and some of them have a gene which makes them particularly sensitive to bitter flavours. Do you hate coffee and bitter veg like cabbage or sprouts as well?

Drink and enjoy what you like.

I have it with soda water, lemonade or near as I'm allergic to tonic water.

If you like it, drink it!

I love tonic water, but gin and cranberry juice is really delicious - very summery.

Add elderflower cordial to a gin and tonic if you want it to be sweeter.

HoneyIshrunkthebiscuit Sun 15-Oct-17 16:33:05

Gin and cranberry Juice is nice and what I drank at uni for the cheaps

Have you tried fever-Tree tonic water? It’s much nicer than most tonics. I love gin with cloudy lemonade. It’s a really nice combo.

Gin and cloudy lemonade is really nice
As is gin and pink lemonade
Aldi used to sell a blood orange lemonade that went very nicely with gin

Bulldog with lemonade and fresh mint is gorgeous!

FutureDays Sun 15-Oct-17 16:51:27

I'm not a fan of tonic so I have it with lemonade smile

SpuriouserAndSpuriouser Sun 15-Oct-17 16:55:08

I love a classic G&T, but I appreciate gin in all its forms. Sloe gin is particularly good with lemonade. If you add it to bitter lemon it's delicious and it has a proper name (long peddler I believe) so it's a legitimate drink and not just me making it up! Also gin, ginger ale, a squeeze of lemon juice and plenty of ice is a gorgeous drink.

BarryTheKestrel Sun 15-Oct-17 16:56:14

I don't like tonic so often drink my gin with lemonade or juice.

Mendeleyev Sun 15-Oct-17 16:57:56

@iklboo. The Pellegrino suggestion is a fine one.

Hate tonic, always drink it with lemonade or, bitter lemon.
