Mealthy Tip

Did you know that gin and tonic was originally created in the early 19th century as a treatment for malaria?Quinine-rich tonic had a bitter taste, so doctors add gin, sugar, and lime to make it more palatable. Tonic water today has significantly lower levels of quinine, so gin and tonic is no longer an effective or used anti-malarial treatment. Cheers!

My wife doesn't like overpowering drinks so this Gin and Tonic was perfect for her. We used fever free tonic with a lime and she loved it.
