Cynar and Soda

Our love affair with Italian bitter apertitivi continues. Of course, Campari still has the number one slot, but we are also fond of Aperol and a new-found vermouth, 'Anitca Formula'. However, a pretender for the crown, snapping at the heels of Campari, is a delicious drink called 'Cynar'. Improbably, it is made from globe artichokes, which is perhaps where it gets its bitterness from. Anyway, it made the most refreshing pre-dinner drink this evening, poured over lots of ice and topped up with soda. I could just drink another one now..........
