I didn't know that about 7up, that is interesting!
As for tonic, I love tonic water with or without gin too (though with gin is the preferable option ;P)
I do find it hard to get a decent tonic water though, because most have sugar AND aspartame/artificial sweetner that screws up the taste, and that is
not the diet kind either. The Fever-Tree brand is very expensive and is actually too sweet, though at least there is not artificial sweetner in it. I
like the taste of Schwepps because it has that pithy lemon taste and is not so sweet, just wish they would leave out the damn artificial sweetners. I
have also tried shop brands, Tesco, Sainsbury etc. I find they are just not quite as fizzy as Schwepps, though some at least are all natural
ingredients. Britvic used to have no artificial sweetner, but I think that has sadly changed now
For the prefect gin and tonic I put the gin in the freezer to make it super cold, then I put it in my Twist 'n' Sparkle device and fizz up the gin
with the co2 gas bulb. This means a large gin with tonic does not flatten out the bubbles from the tonic, coz the gin is fizzy too, keeping the drink
really 'crispy'. Cube of ice and a large slice of lemon! ...... perfect. Damn, I could really go a perfect gin and tonic now! grrrr.
