We don’t normally do this, but we’d like to kick off this post with two friendly, eye-opening statistics. (They’re about gin, a very excellent drink, so rest assured this won’t get too tedious or numbers heavy).
When Australians drink gin, 85% of the time they are drinking a gin & tonic.
Most Australians don’t know how to make a proper G&T.
See the problem here?
But wait, we know what you might be thinking: What’s a proper G&T anyway? The truth is, we have a pretty good idea, but there’s someone who knows better—introducing GINNY BRINGS. Like Jimmy, Ginny’s well-versed in good times, with a particular fondness for mixing flawless, deeply refreshing, proper G&Ts.
In fact, during the month of December, in selected Sydney suburbs, you can go in the running to have her mix you a G&T live in your home the same time your order arrives. Just head to ginnybrings.com.au and purchase any Tanqueray Gin bundle. If you’re a winner, Ginny’ll rock up to your door with all the ingredients, trimmings and glasses, do her thing, and leave in, oh, ten minutes flat.
In case you’re curious about her art of mixing, here are two of the five possible drinks Ginny might make you. They’re proper G&Ts, with a twist.
