Tonic what?

I drink a lot of water (more than 3L a day) so it’s easy to get bored of it. Switched to sparkling water. Am now bored of that too. So I picked up tonic water.


Not being a gin drinker, I don’t think I have ever had tonic water; definitely not had it on its own.

It contains Quinine: C20H24N2O2, a natural white, crystalline alkaloid that is extracted from the bark of the South American cinchona tree; and has medicinal properties. But because the amount of Quinine in tonic water is very less, it exists for taste.

And it tastes really bad. It tastes like diluted alcohol gone bad with decayed lemon.

I’m glad I bought a ChupaChup.
