Advent 2017 – Day 9

9 Dec

Today’s drinks are:

Indi Lemon Tonic

Wow- what a smell! Fizzy Lemon sherbet sweets and zingy limes- fresh but with a hint of sweetshops

Taste wise it’s lovely. Lemony but with the smooth mouthfeel from yuzu so it’s less sharp than it could be and the better for it.

With gin it’s very nice. An updated, more layered version of a gin and bitter lemon. It doesn’t have the bitterness or woodiness I would expect from a tonic water but once you put that out of your mind this is a lovely drink.

De Martino Reserva Enigma 5

This has a strong full-bodied scent with lots of dark berries and dark spices. The smell rises out of the glass and envelopes you.

When drunk the wine lives up to its promises. Hardy enough to match strong food this delicious wine is smooth yet strong. Fruity but not sweet. Absolutely delicious
