Hendrick's and Tonic

Recently a friend visiting from Europe explained how strange it was to order a gin and tonic and find it garnished with lime. His gin and tonics' had, up until this point, been garnished with cucumber. The idea did not appeal to me until I read Hendrick's suggests serving their gin and tonic with cucumber not lime.

After you shave

Clubman makes great products. Their bottles dot the shelves of barbershops. Many know them for their talc, sprinkled on the back of necks after a cut. But I like Clubman best for their aftershave. There is nothing quite like it. The smell and feel are wonderful.
