Author Notes: Developed for a fundraiser supper and sponsored by Casamigos Tequila, it was a thrown together and realized it was missing "something"! That something was the Jack Rudy Cocktail Company's Tonic Elixir/Syrup. JRCC is the key ingredient. A non carbonated tonic typically added to a gin and tonic with he addition of soda water for the fizz. A terrific add in for this new classic. Will morin
