The Soleil Serve

The Way we think it's served best

Put two or three cubes of in the bottom of a balloon tumbler and pour over your desired measure of Soleil gin. Add a slice of orange and taste. If you prefer, add just a dash of Indian tonic water - not too much, you don't want to drown the quality sensation!
