Cyn cyn!


My dear reader Portinari and his lovely wife, La Bella Signora Portinari, introduced me to the Italian bitter, Cynar, on Saturday. Its main ingredient is artichokes and it is a delicious aperitif served with ice and fresh orange juice. We were fortunate to enjoy LBSP's excellent shortbread with it. Happy days in Lewes!

Our German neighbours in the chateau drink it with orange juice believing soda water to be déclassé. That teaches us !

When I find a bottle, I'll try it with soda. Merci M'goose!

OK so I am now on the lookout for a red headed 'classe' Rhein madchen.
