A couple of years ago now, one of my best friends, Marco, in Basel, Switzerland introduced me to this little drink.Â I liked it so much that I keep a stock in our fridge at home, bought from my local deli. Crodino is one of Italy’s famous drinks, a non-alcoholic Italian aperitif made with aromatic herbs.
Aperitifs are appetite-stimulating beverages usually enjoyed before a meal. In Italy they are normally served with peanuts, Crodino is also a delicious refreshing drink on its own, usually served with a slice of lemon and a couple cubes of ice, each bottle or serving being 100ml.
Crodino takes its name from Crodo, the area in northern Piedmont.
