Give your gin a sensory twist with Schweppes 1783

Make your gin tipple a sensational one at Le Salon Bar

By Time Out in association with Schweppes

Some pairings are just meant to be, like gin and citrus. It’s a match made in heaven, as lemon can bring out the very best citrussy botanicals in your favourite premium gin. If you fancy trying something that has a bit more of a flavour than your classic spirit and mixer with ice and a slice, this one’s for you: Plymouth Gin with Schweppes 1783 Salty Lemon Tonic Water, served with lemon peel and black cardamom seeds.

Schweppes 1783 Salty Lemon Tonic Water – a brand-new flavour created by mixologists with perfect mixing in mind – is all about that citrus kick, but it also has a subtle, salty edge to balance out those famous sweet-sour lemony notes. Check out the seriously sophisticated Salty Lemon Tonic Water for a sensory tasting experience.

Drinks with a twist

A classic gin martini with just a twist of lemon is often thought of as sophistication in a glass. But that won’t get you the refreshment factor that you find in a tall, bubbly highball. The effervescent fizz in Schweppes 1783 Salty Lemon Tonic Water should be just the ticket. In this exciting, new and naturally flavoured mixer, you’ll discover lip-smacking salty-sweet flavours, and you’ll also detect floral and aniseed notes, making it a refreshing taste sensation and an ideal companion to any traditional spirit. Unlike other mixers, it pairs particularly well with tequila (cut out the fiddly salt and lemon ritual!) as well as with your favourite premium gin.

How to enjoy it

When you have bubbles that play on the palate and release such bold aromas, our advice is to opt for an equally aromatic spirit. You’ll be in fruity nirvana when pairing Salty Lemon Tonic with Plymouth Gin, and garnishing with lemon peel and black cardamom seeds. The gin’s already-light juniper notes are made all the more subtle when met with the citrus factor from this innovative tonic water, allowing all the other fragrant botanicals in your gin to truly sing. Talk about stirring your senses.

Michelin star restaurants in London - L'atelier de Joel Robuchon

Where to drink it

A great gin and tonic deserves to be enjoyed in summery style. May we suggest visiting the bar of Michelin-starred favourite L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon. The French restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden is famed for its delicious cuisine, making its roof terrace bar a bit of an insider secret. Le Salon Bar has a small verdant terrace that’s protected from the elements, making it the perfect spot for a classic British tipple should the not-so-reliable British weather prevail. Order tapas to complement your tipple and for a chance to see what this haute restaurant is all about. You just know those restaurant diners are going to be curious, nay envious, about what’s going on in your glass.
