Whisky Tonic

Ballantine's Finest Whisky Tonic cocktail recipe

A G&T without the g, Ballantine’s Whisky and Tonic Water is a real thirst quencher for those hot summer evenings. Light, refreshing and simple.

Why do whisky and tonic go together so well?

Forget gin and vodka. A whisky and tonic is an even better pairing. The light, bubbly mixer adds a refreshing zing to the whisky’s warming, spiced edge. Creating a smooth, bittersweet drink that’s super simple to make.

Whisky Tonic Ingredients

How We Make a Whisky Tonic

  • Fill a highball glass with ice and pour in a shot of Ballantine’s whisky.
  • Top up with tonic.
  • Squeeze in a large wedge of lemon and drop it into the glass to serve. Simple.


Get extra tang for your buck with this bittersweet variation. A Whisky Tonic Bitters takes inspiration from another classic recipe, creating a highball version of an Old Fashioned cocktail. Add a few dashes of herbal bitters to the scotch and tonic water, and enhance those aromatic flavours.
