Quinn + Tonik Vol. 38: The Importance Of A Good Blue Suit Can Never be Overstated

Quinn + Tonik Vol. 38: The Importance Of A Good Blue Suit Can Never be Overstated

  
It's not that we're obsessed with the south of France, wine, cars, boats, bikes and all that stuff. But, well, maybe we are. Fresh back from the 2018 Grand Prix de Monaco we can't but help ourselves continue with a rosé-tinted theme.
It's also summer boating jacket season. So, if you fancy one to wear to play pétanque, go sailing, play cricket on the beach, or simply hang around somewhere fine, make an appointment now.

drink: quinn rosé

In a sea of iffy rosé you want the genuine article. Which is why you should look out for the smiking skull of our "Quinn Rosé." It's only affixed to the real stuff which 30+ years of serious tasting led DQ to make in the Var region of Provence just by the legendary beaches of St. Tropez. Dry, light, and refreshing; it's the perfect rosé to be shared with gentlemen, rogues and sunshine.

read: four queens

 
An engaging exercise in political maneuvering as the beautiful daughters of the lowly Count of Provence become Four Queens. And Queens of the most powerful realms in 13th century Europe to boot. Intrigue, espionage, knights, troubadors, chivalry and crusades all combine to tell this fascinating story of social climbing.
Machiavelli eat your heart out.

cocktail: the milk of marseille

   
As well as growing up drinking rosé, DQ was introduced to the “milk of Marseille” as a lad. His favourite is Ricard "51" if you can find it. If not, any pastis will do. Here's how to make it the traditional French way. It's the perfect aperitif on a warm sunny afternoon. And also inspired our "Ricard" leather jacket.
 
Ingredients
1 oz
Ricard Pastis
1 dash
Grenadine
5 oz
Cold water
 
Glass: Highball
 
Add the Ricard Pastis (and grenadine, if desired) to a highball glass and pour in the water to taste. Fill with ice and stir.

We like to think that the right outfit transports you to another place. And we've noted before that it does actually make a difference. But even if you have your Edwardian cuffs cut right like our friend in the photo, and your waistcoat with lapel in place, you may need more giddy-up than just a fine wool mohair blend [...]

“the direct route isn’t always the best one” We've had a lot of time to think about this as we've just driven across Africa in a car that averages 50mph on a good day. 14 hours of trundling along through the middle of nowhere gives time for reflection. Time to think about how lucky [...]
