Ancient Antidote Champagne Recipe

The cedro fruit is quite fascinating. It is shaped like a lemon - but a lemon about four times as large as normal, and with a wrinkled skin. When you cut a cedro open it looks more like an orange on the inside, in terms of texture. Technically the cedro lemon is known as a citron, but the word citron is confusing because in several languages citron means lemon.

The cedro has a history dating back into antuiquity and is mentioned both in Greek writings and in the Bible. It's well worth trying!

1/2 shot cedro / citron liqueur

Ancient Antidote Champagne Cocktail

This particular liqueur I'm using hails from Italy and is known as Nardini Distilleria a Vapore - Acqua di Cedro. It is 29% alcohol. You can see, on its label, the drawing of what a citron looks like.

Cedro / citron was known as an antidote to poison in ancient days. People would mix cedro into their wine and the result was that the poison was neutralized. Hopefully nobody is trying to poison you in your modern life - but it's still nice to have a drink that keeps you safe from harm!
