This is quite simply a fabulous idea! Ice cubes made of tonic water! No more watery gin and tonics!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take your Schweppes Tonic Water and pour it into an ice cube tray. A few hours later, your tonic ice cubes will provide you with the lightest tasting most integrated G&T you can imagine-with no watery melt down.
  2. Place the ice cubes in a tall narrow chilled glass (the cubes should come near the top) Add the Gin, then the Tonic Water then the lime juice stirring well. White Dinner Jacket is optional. Note to make the ice cubes, simply fill an empty ice cube tray with Schweppes Tonic Water and let the cubes freeze. Covered Well, the ice cubes will remain fresh tasting in the freezer for week.
