Recipe: Homemade Tonic Water

This homemade tonic syrup makes the most delicious gin and tonics. To make a gin and tonic, use 1/2 ounce or so of tonic syrup with 2 ounces of gin and top off with several ounces of soda water. Syrup can stay refrigerated in a resealable container for about 1 month.

Homemade Tonic Water Ingredients

  • 4 cups water

  • 3 cups white sugar

  • 3 limes, zested and juiced

  • 3 stalks lemon grass, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 6 tablespoons citric acid powder

  • 3 tablespoons powdered cinchona bark

How to Make Homemade Tonic Water

  1. Bring water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves.

  2. Reduce heat to low; stir in lime zest, lime juice, lemon grass, citric acid, and powdered cinchona bark. Simmer until cinchona is thoroughly dissolved, about 30 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat; let mixture cool, about 15 minutes. Strain through a colander. Run the syrup through coffee filters or cheesecloth to remove sandy bits of bark.
