The Vodka Tonic is a simple, sophisticated drink that can be kept low-key for casual get-togethers with friends or dressed up for dinner parties. While gin is the more obvious choice for tonic water, vodka is excellent for those looking for a crisp and smooth bittersweet drink. Build it in a highball glass for something light and refreshing or in a tumbler for a slightly stronger slow sipper.
Choose a good quality vodka. The better the taste of the vodka, the better the drink.
Play around with garnishes. Cucumber slices, mint leaves, rosemary, and grapefruit are all great options.
Add enough ice and chill all your ingredients! This drink is best served ice cold.
