That was the question I asked myself before tackling this recipe. It seems like a stupid question, but when you contemplate it, the whole concept seems a bit odd – like lathering tomato ketchup on your sushi.
To me, Gin & Juice has always felt like an amusing piece of alliteration rather than a drink that you would actually mix, let alone order. When, in 1999, the drink was catapulted to stardom by rapper Snoop Dogg’ rhythmic utterance of the immortal words ‘sippin on gin and juice, laid back, with my mind on my money and my money on my mind’, I immediately assumed that Gin & Juice was a metaphor for something sexual or drug-related. It turns out it wasn’t. It also turns out that America loves Gin & Juice and that, as a nation, America mixes more gin with juice than it does with tonic water.
