Allow us to suggest some serves.
We won't call them "perfect" as your taste buds may be different from ours.
All of the suggestions below may result in some serious 80s flashbacks, walking like an Egyptian and maybe even experiencing retro superpowers. Don't say we didn't warn you!
Whatever serve you pick: you'll enjoy it even more if you put up your favourite 80s songs. Feel free to check our playlist:
SIDE A : the classic serve
Enjoy VOLUME 7 in a straight-forward gin & tonic:
- 5 cl of VOL.7 GIN
- 15 cl of neutral tonic. Don't go for elderflower, ginger or other infused tonics. They would only hide the delicate spicy mix of our gin.

- a small zest of orange (now go easy on this, you just want to add a tiny bit of freshness)
- a lot of ice
Sip & enjoy. And if you're feeling funky: dance around your living room as if nobody's watching...
