Quinine and Gin and Tonics

This question has been burning in my mind for quite awhile now.  Didn't
quinine used to be used to treat malaria?  And if so why is it now in tonic
water?  Does this mean that if I contract a scorching case of malaria I can
sit down with a jug of Tanqueray and bottle of tonic water and cure myself?
 Or is this idea a bit far fetched.  Thanks in advance.
