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.
