Schweppes Bitter Lemon

Bitter lemon (Dry Lemon in South Africa) is a carbonated soft drink flavoured with quinine and lemon.

The signature bitter taste is produced by a combination of quinine and lemon pith used in manufacturing the drink. The principal difference between tonic water and bitter lemon is the addition of lemon juice and rind. Bitter lemon is drunk both by itself and as a mixer, and is sold across the world.[1]

The generic bitter lemon drink dates back to 1834.[2] Schweppes introduced its brand of bitter lemon in 1957.[3]
