So simple to do and so tasty! Did this for friends who came over for an al fresco dinner and received so many compliments. This is way fancier than the regular G&T.

Agreed as above .. I tried this amazing recipe with my favorite Gin ... a smooth fruity little number by the name of Oliver Twist London Distilled Gin and used 2 tbsp of Gin per person (In fact we used 3 TBSP for the second round as they were so good). If you want to try this using Oliver Twist you are best to buy it online as its a fairly specialist premium Gin. You can find it here: http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/P-18827.aspx Enjoy and I hope to here your views on this.

Yes i would say at least two tablespoons of gin per person.

Um, 2 tablespoons of gin to serve 8 people? Should this recipe not contain about 8 times that amount of gin? I think it might if I try it anyway...
