Here we have a twist on the Vodka Tonic from Belvedere Vodka. It adds just two ingredients to the simple highball and uses a citrus vodka.

The drink is self explanatory for the most part, though something should be said about lime syrup. You have two options: buy a lime syrup or make your own. If you are familiar with simple syrup, creating a lime-flavored version should be easy, just split the water with lime juice. I like to keep this a 1:1 ratio so in the standard 1 cup simple syrup recipe I would do 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup fresh lime juice, 1 cup sugar. If you would like, you may also make up a lime cordial and use that here.
