What are the most bitter, widely available nonalcoholic drinks you can think of?

I love bitter flavours and want something I can sip throughout the day with an almost medicinal taste.

At the moment I drink black coffee and grapefruit juice quite regularly, but would like more choice.

Maybe this, judging from its name. I haven't had it since I was a kid.

Cocktails with a little dash of this in are almost always ace.

I thought of that too but he said non-alcoholic. Maybe a dash of it in something non-alcoholic would make the alcohol levels too negligible to matter.

Kombucha and kvass and beet kvass are things I've heard of but never tried. I'm not sure if they're supposed to be bitter.

Everyone seems to be recommending things with alcohol in. What you're describing are essentially bitters. They won't get you drunk but if you can't have alcohol I'm not about to recommend that.

Jamaican sorrel drinks are very bitter, and is the more widely available and previously mentioned bitter lemon. That'a usually what I make if I fancy something sharp - basically lemonade with hardly any sugar. Very refreshing.

Tonic water would be a reasonable basis for a bitter non-alcoholic drink. You could add a dash of hibiscus, juniper or sloe cordial.

Blutul make a very good non-alcoholic vermouth. San Pellegrino make a couple of non-alcoholic aperitifs under the SanBitter brand and Crodino has always been alcohol free.

>want something I can sip throughout the day with an almost medicinal taste.

Herb liqueur. (Jagermeister, Jagdstolz etc)
Tastes like cough medicine I had as a child but 35% (or my mum was just cracking out her booze to shut me up)

It's thick and sweet rather than bitter, though im sure you could add some more herbs to personalise your own concoction

Sorry, i've had a few.
Why wouldn't you want an alcoholic drink to sup throughout the day?

Surgeons are Misters not doctors. It is a tradition based on the fact that surgery violates the hippopotamus oath.

I heard it was because for a good long while surgeons really weren't doctors, training instead like an apprentice.

Either way, I'm not going to lie, it does feel weird when you're introduced to Mr. Whateverson and he starts telling you how he's going to cut you open.

There are various herbal teas you could try that are quite bitter.
Start with nettle tea.

Disgusting.

I used to like old-school Bovril though, the few times we ever had it. My nan convinced me one day that an Oxo cube was just as good.

My grandad maintains that the RAF ran on Bovril back in the war. He still gets hold of the cubes from somewhere.

I recently discovered that Bovril has been vegetarian for nearly 15 years. Can't say I ever noticed.

Bovril was just Officer code for methamphetamine hydrochloride.
