Cucumber Raspberry Infused Tonic Water Mocktail

This is one of those crisp, cool drinks that can be made anytime that always hits the spot. The fizz from the tonic water tickles your nose, you take a sip and are greeted with the sweet aroma of fresh raspberries followed by their bright tart taste then the refreshing flavor of cucumber comes in. The bitterness of tonic water caused by the addition of quinine works really well in this infused beverage due to the tartness of the berries, but you can always sweeten it up with a touch of superfine sugar. As for playing up the cool refreshing quality of this infused tonic water, ensure that you serve it over ice. Regular ice cubes will do but if you take your hydration very seriously or wish to enhance the water's visual appeal, take things up a notch with fruit-filled ice cubes for added flavor and aesthetics.
