    Cindy - I've looked for it at Lings, Super Food, Wing Tei and NGs (I've also asked). Nobody stocks it. We ended up using Diet Ginger Ale (at Lings) or Club Soda. I know... it's not the "same".

    Cindy, you'll think I'm crazy, but try gin and diet coke with a slice of lime. It has become my go to mixed drink since having one in Dallas last New Years. And diet coke is readily available everywhere on the island.

    We (my wife) have this issue every year. It's hit or miss to find it. Some years she just sucks it up and uses the regular tonic water.

    Going for 2 weeks .... Suitcases are Gona be stuffed. I have a feeling Diet tonic water isn't going to make that cut.

    will try WaltVB 's idea of diet coke or maybe just buy the reg tonic water.

    diet tonic water and MIO mixed together is sooooooo good!!!

    thanks all for your help

    If enough people start asking for it at Lings, I'm sure they'll start to stock it. I'm going to make a scene!
