I love trying locally made products and was excited to check out Milwaukee based Top Note Tonics. The tonics consist of three main ingredients--water, sugar, and herbs. Founders Mary Pellettieri and Noah Swanson started La Pavia beverage company in 2014. Both have extensive experience in the beverage business.
Owners Mary and Noah
They feature numerous drink recipes on their site, but the possibilities are endless. Mix the tonics with carbonated water for a soda or mocktail or with alcohol for a cocktail.
They would be great to have in stock for a party and would also make a great gift! Five flavors are available: Bitter Orange, Indian Tonic, Ginger beer, Gentian Lime tonic, and Bitter Lemon.
I enjoyed the refreshing flavor of the vodka bitter lemon cocktail.
Vodka Bitter Lemon:
- 1 oz Top Note Bitter Lemon
- 1.5 oz Vodka
- 1 oz Dry Vermouth
- 3 oz Seltzer Water
- Build drink in a collins or rocks glass. Add ice. Garnish with lemon peel.
Thank you to Top Note Tonics for sponsoring this post and providing the products for my review.
