Any Chinotto Brio fans on here?

When we were kids, we had Brio, but others had Coke or Pepsi.  Of course, you want to be like other kids, so I took a preferece for those others, but with time, I went back to Brio.  I never could approximate the flavour until I went to buy Angostura Bitters this weekened for an ice cream recipe that called for it. After tasting what it was, I thought I would prefer it in drink than in an ice cream recipe.

It reminded quite a bit of Brio pop.

Anyone else think so (provided you are familiar with both Brio and Angostura Bitters)?

    While I am more than familiar with Angostura bitters -- nothing like a gin and bitters, you know -- I'd never heard of Chinotto before. I now know that chinotto is a fruit that is used in making bitters.

    Well, I was so pleased with this Angostura product this weekend. I thought..wow, what a pleasant discovery for me.  That sounds like a drink that is appealing! How do you do you make it.

    I also did not know that either until I checked it out on-line.

    Something about bitters makes things more appealing to the palate.

    Gin and bitters? Just pour some gin and shake a few drops of bitters into the gin. By the way, chinotto is also used to make Campari. So a soda with bitters and a campari and soda taste pretty much the same.

    Oh, it's that simple.

    From the posts you make on here, Mr. Hoffman, you have an excellent sense of good things.

    Thank you.
