One of the positives about having immigrants from 'all over', is that they bring some new and different foods and drinks with them. Chinese, Italian, Thai, Vietnamese food. Indian, Lebanese, Greek. It's a veritable smorgasbord.

It's something of an acquired taste, but I like Chinotto. The taste is vaguely like bitter grapefruit.

If you get a chance, try it (and give it a chance to win you over). Better than mass market lolly water any day.

Update: A New Australian friend at work (from Malta) tells me that there they have a quite special drink called 'Kinnie'. (More here). Orange and bitter-herb based. I'll be trying it, apparently you can get it here (in Sydney).
