Substituting Tonic Water for Club Soda in recipes?!

Question: Substituting Tonic Water for Club Soda in recipes!?
Would that work!? Or does tonic water have a flavor that could potentially ruin certain recipes!?

Here's the recipe I want to sub in tonic water for the club soda:

25 oz!. (1 750ml bottle) MIDORI
63 oz!. Orange juice
12 oz!. SKYY vodka
32 oz!. Club soda
Blood orange slices – optional

Mix all ingredients into a punch bowl or cauldron!. Stir and serve with a ladle!. Serves 15-20!.

Everyone so far is dead on!. Tonic water does have a slight bitterness to it (the minterals in the water), but will it make enough difference to ruin the mix!? Doubtful!.

And you should be able to taste test it, pregnant or not!. Just dip your finger into a single mixed drink and taste what's there!. That tiny amount of alochol would dissolve in your stomach without ever entering your blood stream!.

Or just get someone else to sample!. :)Www@FoodAQ@Com

I would mix a single drink and take it from there!. I am not sure with the tonic cause it does have a taste to it!. However it goes great with vodka!.
Which is why I am thinking it will be ok!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Just mix a little of each together and taste it!. If you like it then go for it!. I really think it should taste fine but it depends on your personal preference!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Tonic water does not taste the same as club soda, and it does not have as much carbonation!. It would affect the taste and the fizz of the final drinkWww@FoodAQ@Com

No, tonic water has a bitter taste!. Try making a single or small drink first and see if you like it!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
