Three years ago, Oklahoma City resident Glenn Forester's wife asked him to make her a gin and tonic using a tonic syrup recipe, and Forester started to experiment with different ingredients and flavors.
About “15 or 20 recipes later, I came up with a recipe that really worked,” Forester said.
Newly transplanted to Oklahoma City from the Washington, D.C., area, Forester was looking for a new start after his contract was coming to an end at an advertising firm. Strong Tonic sold its first bottle of tonic syrup in 2013 and Forester has since made Strong Tonic his full-time job.
