so i finally bought a bottle since i am quite a fan of such herbal digestifs/aperitifs (cynar is my favorite summer drink.) but seriously--this stuff is tough to get down. the notes of menthol make me think i'm smoking a newport. should i use a mixer or just grow some hair on my chest? i know of the alleged medicinal qualities of various herbal liquors but this tastes a little too close to actual medicine for my tastes. i feel like i might as well finish my dinner with robitussin. maybe my bitter palate is more underdeveloped than i thought. advice/comments anyone?
