Beverly Soda

"Hey, we are going up to the tasting room, do you want to come?"

I was at the World of Coca-Cola museum in Atlanta for a reception. I had no idea that there was a tasting room. So, up I went thinking well, coke does taste different in Central America, maybe it's true else where too. The tasting stations were arranged by continent. We tasted our way through Asia and Africa. Some of them were fruity, some citrusy, some frankly nasty, none a cola beverage. When we got to Europe, imagine my surprise to see Beverly soda, from Italy. It apparently is used as an aperitif.

Well, I had to try it, didn't I?

It has quinine in it, so it tastes a little like tonic water. I liked it.
