A Vodka Tonic is such a classic cocktail. I make this with a vodka base, Indian tonic water (made with real sugar) and lemon and lime juices for a bit of tartness. This is a simple and refreshing drink that’s perfect year-round!

We’ve got dozens of cocktail recipes here that you’ll for sure want to check out after you make this one. I have picked out a few of our favorites that I’ve listed below.

Vodka Tonic

Vodka Tonics are what are considered a highball drink. That simply means it’s a two-ingredient cocktail drink that pairs an alcohol and a mixer. (We add a little lemon and lime in with the two main ingredients.) Common highball drinks that you’ve probably heard of before are Seven and Seven or Scotch and Soda.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Vodka. Whichever brand you like best will work, but according to Thrillist the best brand of vodka for a tonic is Reyka.
  • Indian Tonic Water. Indian Tonic Water in tonics tastes best because it’s made with real sugar as opposed to corn syrup or other sweeteners.
  • Lime. A wedge for the drink and extra for garnish.
  • Lemon. Same as the lime; a wedge and a slice for garnish.
  • Ice. Because no one likes a warm drink.
