The Vodka Tonic is a nice cocktail for hot lazy afternoons. The taste is very clean, with just a hint of lime. I will caution, that a mediocre vodka can ruin the drink as the metallic aftertaste and grainy finish will dominate. But with a really good Vodka the drink becomes sublime.
1 3/4 oz well chilled Premium Vodka
1 3/4 Oz Tonic Water
a slice of lime
Add the well chilled Vodka and Tonic into your glass
(If you must use ice please use ice-cubes that have not clouded as impurities can ruin the cocktail.)
Twist the lime over the glass and stir
You may garnish with an extra slice of Lime.
