So, I don't really know bitters, but [personal profile] springheel_jack was talking about trying different kinds, and my curiosity got sparked. I had bought Karlovskaya Becherovka in a garage sale, and it's fine, but not particularly remarkable.

So I bought Unicum. It's Hungarian. It means 'unique'.

Man. It's pretty intense. I don't want to say it's nasty, but I'm not enjoying it, and it would be quite an acquired taste. It did remind me of something... Eventually, I realized that it tastes like chinotto without the sweetness and the fizz. I actually happened to have chinotto in the fridge so I had some to compare, and damn if they're not really similar.

I looked for cocktails around a bit, and the responses were in the range of "the drink you can't make cocktails with", although you can obviously dilute it in soda. I diluted it in flat chinotto, while I was at it...

I managed to get in the Toronto Temperance Society again. Damn that place is amazing, and it's a great place to bring friends from out of town.
