Not in my tonic water!

DSCN0257I want to share something I recently learned with all my wonderful followers.

Every now and then I enjoy a good vodka tonic or gin and tonic and I assumed I knew what I was drinking.  But – that was most definitely not the case.  Thanks to my brother, I became aware that most tonic waters contain high fructose corn syrup.  Yikes!  I didn’t know that.  I assumed it was basically water.  I don’t know about you, but I do not want to be consuming high fructose corn syrup…ever.

Enter Q Tonic.  I can’t say enough about it!  It is awesome stuff!  It’s vegan, it’s delicious and its ingredients are all natural!  It tastes so clean and real.  The drinks I make with it take on a whole new meaning; I can now see that the drinks I used to make with Schweppes, for example, tasted artificial.

It does cost more money, but since I don’t drink often, when I do, I think it’s worth some extra money to drink well!

Salud –  to your health!  Don’t drink crap!  I am so glad that I know about tonic water and I hope you are glad that I shared it with you!

  1. Ugh, vodka tonic is my go-to drink. I’ve been trying to avoid high fructose corn syrup, and it’s amazing how many food and drink items it’s in! Thanks for the info. I might have to try this for at-home cocktails and stick to wine when I’m out.
