Canada Dry Tonic Water with a twist of Lime

Canada Dry Tonic water with a twist of Lime is among an increasingly common trend in tonic waters to include a citrus flavor as part of the water. Many tonics include citric acid to add that note normally, but Canada Dry Tonic water with a twist of Lime takes it a level up and directly promotes it as “with a twist of Lime,” of course.

Tasting Notes

Lemon-lime soda on the nose, reminiscent of 7up.

The palate is very sweet. General citric tang early followed by candy lime and a crescendo of nearly cloying sweetness mid-palate.

A pleasant, although muted bitterness hits late palate. As it fades, the quinine note lingers on the palate for a moderate length of time.

Mixing it with gin, the sweetness is strong and steals the show. The lime is less obvious than other tonics like Canada Dry Tonic water with a twist of Lime, but the extra citrus punch is enough to merit not cutting into a fresh fruit.

Overall

Canada Dry Tonic water with a twist of Lime lives up to its name. It might be less lime-forward than you’d expect given the name, however the quinine and long lasting bitter note is better than others in it’s class. Canada Dry Tonic water with a twist of Lime is a decent and affordable option in it’s category.
