Mediterranean or Mallorcan tonic provides that extra hit of sweet citrus, which balances beautifully with the herbal bitterness of lemon and thyme.
The yellow and green garnish also makes it look and smell extra fresh!

50ml MERCATO Mediterranean Gin
150-200ml Mediterranean or Mallorca tonic (we like Fever Tree Mediterranean or Franklin & Sons Mallorcan)
Plenty of cubed ice
Sprig of Fresh Thyme
YOU ALSO NEED
Grab a large copa (aka balloon) glass...
Try to ensure your glass is pre-chilled and not warm. To do this, you can fill it with some ice and swirl it round for 15 secs and then discard this ice. However, if you don't have that much ice to mess around with, swill your glass under some very cold water. Just make sure that glass is nice and cold somehow yeah!...
Now the good stuff, add 50ml (i.e. a double shot) of your MERCATO Mediterranean Gin...
Add plenty of cubed ice. IMPORTANT: ice it up all the way to the top to reduce dilution and a watery cocktail...
Add the tonic...
Slice a lemon into a small wedge and place into your glass (alternatively just use the lemon peel)...
Add a tall sprig of fresh thyme and delicately place into your glass (approx half in the drink, half out)
Sit back and enjoy your fresh, super Mediterranean G&T!
