Looking for a Good Recipe for Homemade Tonic Water

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: My dad is a lover of gin and tonics and he’s obsessed with that fancy (and pricey!) Q Tonic. He loves it because it’s not as sweet as the grocery store brands.

Being the crafty kind of girl that I am, I want to make my old man some homemade tonic for a holiday surprise. I’ve got a SodaStream, but I have no idea where to find quinine, and no idea what else goes into tonic water!

Does anyone out there have a tonic water recipe? Or any suggestions where to purchase quinine?
