I still drink tonic because I still drink gin. Of course I still drink gin! I could barely get through if it wasn’t for gin! But no matter how important the self-medication, I will not drink tonic from plastic bottles.
So I buy Schweppes tonic in cardboard packs of 6 tins.
Yes I know tins are plastic lined…..but I need that gin. Only joking under 18s. Hardly touch a drop.
So I moved onto Tescos own brand which is not too bad. Same deal – 6 tins in a cardboard box.
You can get a similar tonic package from Sainsburys – bigger cans but not so much to my taste.
And now Schweppes have reappeared unwrapped.
Talking of size….
The downside of buying tonic like this, is that the cans are rather small and I have a lot of very thirsty lady friends. It can get pricey.
The plus side is, that if like me you only have a very small snifter, very occasionally, your tonic is always fresh!
