Tequila and Tonic

The Tequila and Tonic is just what it sounds like: a healthy dose of tequila topped off with tonic water. The latter ingredient adds some bitterness along with the bubbles.

This drink has a light, refreshing taste that will be appreciated by those who don’t love the surplus of really sweet cocktails out there. It goes with any meal and any occasion. And even though it’s got two and a half ounces of tequila, the tonic water balances it out so you get a good, stiff drink without so many of the unpleasant side effects.


  • 2 1/2 ounces Cuerv0 gold tequila
  • Tonic water

Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour in the Cuervo and fill the rest of the way with tonic water. Garnish with lime wheel.
