Their creativity has not gone unnoticed. Ashley Greene, a bartender at Tailor in New York City, says she chooses Q Tonic for her cocktails because more common tonic waters are too sweet and will "overpower nice gin". Craig Cooper, beverage director of Pops for Champagne in Chicago, prefers Stirrings because it's well balanced and "doesn't have a syrupy soda taste". Nick Peyton, maitre d' and owner of Cyrus in Healdsburg, California, favors Fever-Tree. "Most tonic is undrinkable," he says, "but [Fever-Tree] tastes delicious."
