Tonic water has become a trendy drink in recent times. Vodka tonic, gin and tonic and even plain tonic water are consumed in homes, as well as bars and clubs.

What Is Tonic Water?
Tonic water is a carbonated drink, containing some mineral which gives it a distinct taste. The unique ingredient in tonic water is quinine; which gives the drink its bitter taste. It is an alkaloid gotten from the bark of a native Peruvian tree. To reduce the bitterness caused by quinine, sweeteners from nectar or sugar are added to the tonic. Carbonation also offsets the bitter taste. Tonic is a popular ingredient for cocktails as well as being a top-notch beverage when combined with gin.
