Crodino. One of the typical Italian amari or bitter drinks. Calling them "bitter" is a little misleading. Yes, they ARE bitter but only when compared to the sickly sweet of mainstream soda. There is still sugar in there but it is counter to the refreshing, quenching effect of the acidity and herbal bitterness. There are several other types but this one is my favourite.
Well chilled, straight up, or with a slice of lemon, it is the perfect foil for the heat after a day spent 'in giro'.
