Here’s how to make the best vodka tonic, one of the easiest mixed drinks of all time! This two-ingredient cocktail is bubbly, citrusy, and refreshing.


  • 1 ½ ounces (3 tablespoons) vodka
  • 4 ounces (½ cup) tonic water
  • For serving: Ice, lemon or lime wedges (optional)


  1. Fill a highball glass with ice. Pour in the vodka and stir several times. Pour the tonic water onto a bar spoon into the glass (to increase the bubbles).
  2. Squeeze in the juice from 1 lemon wedge and 1 lime wedge. Add the squeezed wedges into the drink, then add another lime wedge to the glass as a garnish.
