This variation on the usual gin and tonic is just right for the winter. Don't be a jackoff either--use Tanqueray gin or don't bother.

Start with a standard cocktail glass (aka "rocks glass") and fill about 1/3 of the way with ice.

Add two shots of gin

A splash of peppermint schnapps

A small splash of blue curacao

Fill the remainder with tonic (yes, always Schweppe's)

The juice of 1/4 lime and do toss the crushed lime piece into the drink

A sprig of peppermint would not be inappropriate.

Brrrr....I might get chilly with one right now...
