Classic Gin and Tonic

1 - lime (Actually 1/8th of a lime)
1 ounce of gin. (Eggs's uses Tanqueray - Kurt uses Bombay Sapphire Gin)
tonic water

Wash the lime, cause you're going to drop it into a glass, pour liquid over it, and drink it, so it'd be gross not to wash it first.

Cut the lime in half, and then cut each half into quarters. Squeeze the bajesus out of one of these 1/8th lime units and drop it in the bottom of a tall glass.

Pour an ounce of gin over the top of it. Kurt pours two ounces, because he doesn't have time to mess around.

Fill the glass up with big old-fashioned ice cubes. Because cold is good, and diluted is not. Ice maker wedges are not for gin and tonics.

Fill the glass with tonic water. Twirl the ice a little with the tip of your finger. You don't need to mix it much because gin and tonic water have a natural affinity, like Astaire and Rodgers or Hepburn and Tracey.

In this episode we feature an ad by our new sponsor, Holy Man Frozen Dinners, talk about Kurt's various problems with the law, and another "Requesta Umaka Song" segment appears.
