Miss your martini? This brine-kissed cocktail mimics the bracing, icy edge of the classic cocktail without adding an ounce of vodka or gin. Because tonic water is one of the essential ingredients here, it pays to seek out a premium brand, such as Fever Tree, that is dry and herbal and free of artificial sweeteners.
