(White) Whiskey And Tonic

When is it O.K. to make a Whiskey and Tonic? When you use white whiskey and Q Indian Tonic or some other high-juniper tonic. That is because you get all the flavorful corn and tequila-like notes of a white whiskey like MurLarkey's Justice and the juniper flavor you usually associate with a gin.

There's lots of drinks you can make with white whiskey. It plays well with citrus in drinks like Margaritas, but you can also go sweet like an Eggnog or some kind of rum punch.

This is a simple recipe you can make if you don't feel like thinking too much about making cocktails, or it turns out that you don't happen to have any gin on hand.
  • 1 1/2 oz. white whiskey (MurLarkey Justice used)
  • Q Indian Tonic or high-juniper tonic
  • lime wedge
Build drink in a rocks glass with whiskey and ice and top with tonic. Stir and garnish with a lime wedge.
