Tonic & Gin

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Despite the name, this drink contains no tonic; it gets tonic's acidic quinine flavor from Bonal, a French aperitif wine that's infused with quinine and other aromatics. If you can't find Bonal (which is newly available in the U.S.), Dubonnet rouge is a fine substitute.
