With the splash of lime, the Vodka Tonic is an easy-to-make, refreshing sipper for really hot days. Where the Gin & Tonic relies on the flavor of gin to make the drink, this vodka version is very clean and almost flavorless, except for the lime.
This is also where a good vodka comes into play: a value vodka will add nothing to the drink and it's impurities will shine through. Also, try this out with any of your favorite flavored vodkas.
