I want to circle us back to an old and very important debate.
What is the plural of the drink made from gin and tonic?
One is “a gin and tonic”.
Do we say two “gin and tonics” or “gins and tonic”?
This flashed back into my mind this afternoon while preparing Sunday Supper (which is getting more elaborate). I made myself a gin and tonic, stuck in a DVD of the Inspector Morse series, and started prep. Then I heard it. I couldn’t believe me ears. I had to go back and listen again.
So, I share it now.
- Woman: I don’t know. I’d had one or two g and t’s by that time. Or should I say g’s and t?
- Inspector Morse: Oh, g’s and t. Definitely.
Strange guy, Inspector Morse. A real mess. But clever.
What is your opinion on this issue of very great importance?
