  • ice cubes
  • 200ml gin
  • ½ pink grapefruit, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 orange, zest peeled into large strips
  • fresh thyme sprigs
  • 4 pitted queen olives, rinsed
  • 600ml tonic water


  1. Fill four balloon glasses halfway with ice cubes, then divide the gin evenly among them.
  2. To each glass, add grapefruit slices, orange peel strips, and thyme sprigs, followed by an olive.
  3. To serve, top up each glass with tonic water.

Tip: Peel thin slices from the orange with a vegetable peeler, trying to stick to the orange skin and leave the white pith beneath. Use a little of the leftover orange flesh to fill the olives before adding them to the glasses for added flavor.
