TRVTH.

Yup.
When it comes to tonic, the six pack of little glass bottles is the only way to fly. It doesn't even cost that much more, since you're going to dispose of the flat remains of that 1L or 2L plastic bottle anyway. Unless you're having a G&T marathon. Which is perfectly acceptable, but I prefer not to ingest that much sugar in one sitting.

Last night at the bar they charged me 7,70 € for a single G&T. Mostly ice in it, what a ripoff!!!!! Went to another bar right after finishing it

P always said that Hendrick's and Sapphire was for folks who don't like gin.

Gimme Bombay 1761 instead, if you are into bombay

Ouch,for bombay that's pretty steep unless it was the Star of Bombay. Even then it's pricey
