"Indian Tonic" water
used to contain Quinine: Gin & Tonic became popular with the landed gentry in India
as Quinine is a treatment for malaria, it is also what makes the tonuc water have an odd UV glow in certain lights. Not sure that G&Ts themselves keep the mozzies away - however Bombay Sapphie is so heavily perfumed it wouldn't surprise me if it did. Gin, when drunk in quantity over a long period, can result in erectile dysfunction which used to be a common complaint of the very same gentry in India!
