Gin & Tonic

Tonic water originally started as a way to consume quinine, which is an effective prophylactic (no, not that kind) against malaria.  Tonic is quinine dissolved in carbonated water with a little sweetener added to it.  One of the neat things about quinine is its phosphorescent qualities. It glows under UV light.  
 So, y'know, next time you're at a Rave you know what to drink.


2     oz        Gin
4     oz        Tonic
squeeze      Lime

Fill a rocks glass with ice
Add liquor & tonic
