What is tonic water?
Tonic water is a carbonated water that also contains quinine and is lightly sweetened. Its flavour is bubbly, bitter, sweet and sour, making it an excellent mixer for drinks.
Tonic water is carbonated water with added quinine and sugar.
Club soda is carbonated water infused with added minerals, which give it a salty flavour.
1. Vodka Tonic
This variation on the most of G&T less about the booze and more about citrusy bubbles. Gin is botanical and booze forward, but vodka melds right into the tonic water. It makes for a drink where you might not be able to taste the alcohol at all (so beware!). While it’s simple, there are a few tips on making the very best vodka tonic.

The sweet, bubbly carbonation pairs perfectly with oaky, spicy whiskey. In fact, we love toning down whiskey this way, especially in the summer. Here’s more about how to make a whiskey and tonic, and a few more great bubbly highball cocktails.

Killer twist to Gin and Tonic. Switch your gin to white bubbly wine And oh man, does it deliver! The flavor is perfectly crisp, with floral and herbal notes from white wine. Top that off with lots of bubbles, and you’ve got a refreshing cocktail that works not only for summer afternoons but evening happy hour in any season. Single shot of bubble with splash of tonic water.
