Merriam Webster defines “tonic” as “a medicinal substance taken to give a feeling of vigor or well-being.” We’re absolutely not trying to say vodka tonic is medicine, but we can definitely vouch for that “well-being” part. This classic cocktail is simple and utterly refreshing—especially when it’s made with Ketel One Vodka. Best of all, it’s nearly foolproof when you’re making it at home.
- 1 ½ oz. Ketel One Vodka
- 5 oz. tonic water
- 2 wedges of lime
How to make a vodka tonic:
Fill a glass with ice and add your Ketel One Vodka. Top it off with your tonic water and give it a little stir. Garnish with a lime wedge and there you have it: well-being in a glass.
How is a vodka tonic different from a vodka soda?

Is vodka tonic healthy?
Well, “healthy” is something of a relative term. Vodka doesn’t have any sugar, so that’s a plus. But alcohol is alcohol and should be enjoyed per the recommendations of health professionals.
