Antesite French Mint Drink Mix 4.4 oz
In 1898 a young apothecary, Noel Perrot-Berton, was challenged by a railroad executive to invent a drink – without alcohol – that would quench the thirst of the stokers who toiled in the heat. The result was Antésite, which gets its name from the Latin ante (against) situm (thirst). This drink mix is based on the extract of licorice and other plants (the exact ingredients are still a closely guarded secret). One bottle is enough to flavor 85 liters of water. It is sugar free and contains no artificial sweeteners, deriving its sweetness naturally from the licorice. One glass contains less than one calorie. It can be mixed with water (hot or cold), sparkling water, tea, coffee, or milk. It can also be used as a culinary aid, to accentuate the fennel taste in certain Mediterranean dishes, or to flavor yogurts, ice creams, or sorbets without adding sugar.
