Chinotto is a type of carbonated soft drink produced from the juice of the fruit of the myrtle-leaved orange tree. The beverage is dark in color. Its appearance is similar to that of cola, but it is not as sweet as cola, having a bittersweet taste. The drink was known in antiquity as a dark-hued, bitter-tasting variant of orange juice, and was considered as a refreshment.
