You may recall that I didn't like tonic water, but I gave a Gin 'n Tonic a try at Musso and Frank a month or so ago. While I didn't absolutely LOVE the tonic, I did gain an appreciation for the complexity it brings to a drink, and I had to admit that the G&T was pretty refreshing. So, I wanted to test my tolerance for tonic water, by employing it in my own fancy cocktail.
|Yes, it looks like a Midori Sour, but unlike a Midori Sour, it's actually fantastic!|
And I was right! I was 100% ok with the tonic water, and this drink was excellent! My husband, although he has been amazing during this project and has been fighting his own food demons just as diligently as I have, he opted out of the tonic water. He tasted mine, then decided he'd rather have his topped with mineral water instead. I knew I liked my Tonic version of the drink, but I did take a sip of his Non-Tonic Variation, to see which one I preferred. And wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles, I liked my Tonic Version better! It sure had a lot going on, and it was very delicious and interesting!
