Our day in Barcelona still rates as one of my very favourite travel experiences. We’ve earmarked it for a return journey very soon, but until then, every time there’s a sunny day, my mind races back to the gorgeous restaurant at the very top of the Arenas shopping centre (the old bullring) where we sat and had enormous buckets of gin and tonic with scoops of sharp lemon sorbet.
My own version features my favourite No 3 Gin, a wedge of lime, really decent tonic (try Fever-Tree) and Waitrose Seriously Sicilian Lemon Sorbet, but sadly doesn’t feature one of those great big gin boules as however much I search, I just can’t seem to find the perfect one. No matter, I’ll keep hunting. Until then, try it out. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
