Your Rome drink: chinotto!


You've never had an Italian experience until you've had some of this juice atop the hallowed cobbles...

Fuuuuny! Of course it tastes horrible and I hate it, but tradition is tradition (like kvas in Russia)!

Alcoholic or not?

Perhaps it's simply because I am Italian, but Chinotto is my favorite soft drink in Italy. I do believe that the vending machine in the Giancolo underground parking garage recieved a fair share of my money since it seemed impossible for me to walk to/from the Vatican and the NAC without buying a Chino.

It is non-alcoholic and tastes like a China Martini! :-)

It sucks man!

But just like tonic water(on a much lesser degree)
it is a manly drink.
An aqquired taste.

I started drinking tonic water on principle!
