MARK DAVIDSON’S PERFECT GIN AND TONIC

1¾ ounces gin (Venus Gin No. 01 or Bombay Sapphire)
3¼ ounces Fever-Tree Tonic Water
1 2-inch block pure ice, tempered 20–30 minutes
Wedge of lime

To achieve the “glass of water” effect of a nearly perfectly clear drink, take care throughout to not agitate the ingredients. Add gin to glass. Tilt glass and pour tonic gently so as not to agitate. Gently squeeze a few drops of juice from a wedge of lime into the glass. Carefully place a large, 2-inch ice block in the glass. Drop lime wedge on top of ice block. Do not stir. Drink and enjoy!
