if it weren't for gin and tonic, i could probably do that too. i could murder a lovely gin and tonic with a big wedge of lime in it right this second.
Mmmmm, refreshing.

Just squeeze a lemon just as you would an orange and mix the juice in with the vodka (you might want to add a little bit of sugar so that your mind isn't blown by the acidity). Sometimes I buy fresh lemon juice from Sainsburys though, that's lovely too.
Crystalball, thank you for my new favorite drink, I'm now on my third! (well, it is bank holiday weekend . . .) I did it slightly different though, I put the juice of half a lemon in and a little mineral water, lovely! No sugar though, too much like fizzy drinks for me then.
So the honey vodka was good? I brought some back from my trip abroad a few weeks ago but not tried it yet. I'll have to get some different ones next time. I have cranberry, honey, bison grass and cherry so far. Then again I don't really touch spirits.
Wyvern, you need to get drinking those, or I'll be trying to steal them as well as your Henderson's Crisps!

Let's say the Honey Vodka divided opinion. Like the Cherry Vodka, opinion varied from "It tastes like some sort of cough medicine ... Yum" to "It tastes like some sort of cough medicine ... Yuck". I think I will buy Mimpkin a bottle of Night Nurse to use in lieu of Creme de Menthe for Christmas.

She's right about the Goldwasser though - that's really nice

Glad you liked it. I don't put any sugar in either actually but, in the past, a couple of my victims found fresh lemon juice a bit too much. You're clearly hardcore and I salute you.

We need a vodka thread, don't we?

last night i learned that rum + ginger ale is not so good. vodka + ginger ale on the other hand, is ace! i forgot how much i used to drink those smirnoff mule thingies and how yummy they were.

crystalball, that lemon juice drinks sounds so good! i'm going to try it out (but i'll probably add a tiny bit of sugar)

I love rum with ginger ale!

Vodka and ginger is really nice though, especially a vanilla or raspberry vodka.
