I'll cover the tab. And if you ever get to Tallahassle, FL, I'll get it for real.
gaaa! what the hell!? The real,original tonic sure as hell wasn't sweetened! I guess, I've bought xanax from India, maybe i can buy quinine fro China, and make my own.

Good point...extra gin.
Yeah, I'll have to ask around, but G&T's aren't a real popular drink here in Belgium. (would you like a beer?) Maybe my liquor guy in Amsterdam will have some insight on high-quinine tonic water, but it's really a 19th, early-20th century Brit thing.
I don't care about the sweeteners so much (that was the OP's quibble). But it WOULD be interesting to taste a G&T made with a high-quinine content, like they did back in the day.
