Vodka & Tonic

So simple it doesn't require a name, nor for that matter does the drinker have to give a rats ass. Gin is too fragrant for your delicate palate? Maybe you've stuck with this one since the Carter administration and are afraid to try something new lest it challenge you. For all the knocks I'm giving it, it is still a good standby drink--in the summer. A guest who orders this one in the winter--and one did--admits that she is telling everyone it is just club soda and lime. I'm not fooled, and neither are your friends. At least she had the sense to order rail vodka because it would be a shame to waste good stuff on a drink in disguise.
  • 2 oz. vodka
  • tonic water (Fever Tree Tonic used)
  • 2 lime wedges
Build drink in a highball glass with vodka, ice and topping with tonic. Stir with straw and add lime wedges to the rim.
