4 cl of vodka
10 cl of tonic water
1 lemon slice
The Vodka Tonic is one of the few certainties in life: it is always there for you, ready to comfort, especially when the day has been long and suffocating.
An original, codified Vodka Tonic recipe does not exist, God forbid. Everyone knows exactly how to dose the quantity of vodka at will and accordingly to the day’s stress level.
If an afternoon aperitif is granted a ratio of 1/3 vodka to 2/3 of tonic, you can dare even more with a half and half proportion after dinner.
The lime gives the final touch: a slice for garnish and a one to be squeezed in to add a touch of citrus freshness, which makes this drink smooth and irresistible, especially in summer.
