and sold here in Australia does contain quinine. I beleive they once had or
maybe still do have a brand that does not contain quinine.

I agree that tonic water is an acquired taste - but "evil"?

evil, even though he has never had the privilege of enjoying it...

I am currently making a recipe especially for him in 1998/99? (whenever he
fouls our shores again). Now this *will* be evil ;)
