Daylight saving has begun and summer is well and truly in the air.
And do you know what that means? It’s officially Gin and Tonic weather.*

Within the study, the participants ranked food and drink choices alongside a personality questionnaire which involved statements that included "I enjoy tormenting people." Note to my family, friends and loved ones: I have never thought this. I promise. PROMISE.
