my favorite drug

quinine is by far my favorite drug.. taken for malaria this bitter-tasting powder ,  from cinchona tree bark , needed  carbonated water  to masked the taste..tonic was invented… then gin is added to mask the taste of everything..now we make quinine synthetically and add just enough to give a bitter taste to the tonic.. still tastes good to me.. i think i’ll go and have a G and T now… chin chin
