    Gin and Tonics in the US and developed world just use soda water, rather than quinine tonic...

    At the time it was no quinine, but I avoid it. It used to have larger amounts of quinine - not so much these days but still some there. Don't really know what effect it would have. I drank it before and it was part of the treatment for malaria before the G6PD was discovered and I didn't notice any difference. Malaria tablets made me more susceptible because of that.

    As far as I can tell, a real "gin and tonic" uses tonic water, such as Schweppes, and tonic water has quinine in it. So if you get soda water, send it back!
