Drink This Weekend Edition: Magical mixing with Tomr’s Tonic

January 18th 03:01pm, 2013

The notion of stocking up on beverages usually pertains to soda, beer and wine, but every since I’ve become acquainted with Tomr’s Handcrafted Tonic Syrup Concentrate, I’m bent on acquiring as much of this mixer as possible. Why am I compelled to hoard? This small-batch cocktail accessory lends a tasty touch of woodsy tonic flavor to every spirit it touches, just like the formula prescribed on the back label: “1 ounce of tonic syrup, 2 ounces of a spirit, 3 ounces of club soda.” Every highball – not just a G&T – has been fabulous, with both white and dark-colored spirits.

Tomr’s Tonic is made with all-natural, organic ingredients, including bark from the cinchona tree – the original source of quinine and what gives tonic water its dry, bitter flavor. You can snatch up this newbie to St. Louie at The Wine Merchant where a 200-milliliter bottle is sold for $9. This apothecary-esque elixir is just now making its way into area bars, but you can find it being used at The Fortune Teller Bar, where it shares space in the glass with Bombay Sapphire Gin and soda water in a drink dubbed The Raj.
