April 9th is International Gin & Tonic Day!
Celebrate the classic cocktail with delicious variations of this highball drink from the spectacular mixers Q Drinks. Jordan Silbert, the CEO and Founder of Q Drinks, is a passionate Gin & Tonic fan and he actually created the first Q Drinks flavor, Q Tonic, because he wanted to enhance his favorite drink. Gin & Tonics are so popular over the summer and Q Tonic complements your premium gin as any tonic should.
Q Tonic is made with real ingredients, i.e. quinine from real trees.
Lightly sweetened with organic agave. No sugar or high fructose corn syrup.
Made with high levels of carbonation so it does not become flat in cocktails
All natural and low calorie.
Dedicated to always elevating your cocktail experience, Q Drinks has officially added Q Indian Tonic to their line of spectacular cocktail mixers! This new tonic water was created with the intention of enhancing juniper-forward gins.
