The tonic water moderately reduces the sweetness of the Benedictine, giving the wine a sweet, herbal taste of Benedictine, but with a clean, refreshing taste.

About Benedictine Tonic Ingredients

Made by soaking 27 herbs in French brandy, it was originally created in 1510 at a Benedictine monastery in Normandy, France. This herbal liqueur has a strong sweet taste and complex herbal aroma. The alcohol content is 40 degrees.
Tonic water
It is made by adding extracts from citrus peels and sugar content to carbonated water or soda pop, and has both a refreshing and bittersweet taste.
Aromatic bitters
Bitter liqueur made primarily from the bark of the angostura (tangerine tree). When we simply call it Angostura bitters, we are referring to it. Just a few drops can add depth to the flavor.
