Here's how to make the perfect York Gin and tonic. If it takes more than a minute you're probably spending too long on the preparation and not long enough on the drinking!
Method: Make sure your glass has large chunks of ice (they don't melt as quickly), add 50ml of your favourite York Gin and 100ml of a premium tonic. Add garnish to taste.
