Happy Hour: Vodka Tonic

Although I love a nice mixed drink with lots of interesting ingredients and specialty liqueurs, my go-to drink for the last several years has definitely been a plain ol' vodka tonic. I'm always amazed by how lovely and refreshing a few ounces of vodka poured over ice and topped with tonic water can be. If I'm feeling adventurous, I'll put a splash of lime or lemon and a few sprigs of mint. So next time you're out and you're not sure what to order, try a vodka and tonic. To learn how to make one yourself,

Vodka Tonic

2 oz vodka
Tonic water

Pour vodka into a highball glass with ice cubes.
Fill with tonic water.
Stir, and serve.
Garnish with a lemon or lime.

For an bonus twist add a few sprigs of mint, or a splash of lime juice.

I'm with princesabella...vodka, club soda, and lime. It's the perfect drink for me. But yeah, you have to have the good vodka like Goose when you drink it this way or it tastes like you're drinking rubbing alcohol. Ugh! I also adore a good vodka martini. LOL, it's waaaay to early to be thinking about this! :)

Ugh, tonic water is soooooo gross. I prefer a vodka and soda water with lime... yum yum yum, no cals or sugar in the soda water and doesn't have that sweet flavor to it. blech. It's so much more refreshing. Still lite and can be your go to drink, try it, I think you'll be surprised.

Does anyone know a tonic water that isn't so sweet? I just can't stand how sugary most vodka tonics taste,

Well, if you choose the right vodka, you can make the drink half vodka half tonic and you don't taste it. It's amazing to me. :ROTFL: @ JennaV and Fancy04 _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

That's my drink, too!! Except for when I can get a good champagne cocktail or gimlet.

I forgot to mention, with this drink, definitely get the best vodka you can. This is because there's not a lot of other things to mask the taste of impurities.

this is my go-to also! Mine used to be rum and coke, then rum and diet, but, unless they have rum and caffeine free diet i had to find something new, so....vodka tonic is it! If you are on a budget and are not able to do top shelf, my friends do flavored Stoli and tonic! _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?
