Vodka Tonic is the perfect summertime cocktail. We decided to kick things up a notch with this Vodka Tonic with Orange- the classic taste of this popular drink paired with a juicy, sweet orange- what’s not to love?!?!
One of my favorite go-to drinks is a vodka tonic. I love how bubbly and refreshing it is. One afternoon during an impromptu happy hour with some good friends, we had plenty of vodka, plenty of tonic, but were fresh out of limes! Being from Florida, we always have oranges on hand and decided to give it a try! I will never go back to the wedge of lime I had grown so used to- an orange is so much better!!!
What is a Vodka Tonic?
A vodka tonic is a cocktail that is prepared with vodka, tonic water and a wedge of lime. This is a very popular, classic drink because of its simplicity and delicious taste!
How many calories are in a vodka tonic?
One reason why vodka tonics are so popular is because they are relatively low in calories and sugar, compared to other cocktails. The exact nutrition will vary based on the specific ingredients used, but a 8oz drink will contain around 150 calories.
