The Cedrata is a classic and traditional Italian soft drink. It’s not as known outside of Italy, but it is very loved by Italians. Its name comes from “cedro,” or “citron” in English, and is a large citrus fruit usually used in desserts in Southern Italy. The Cedrata is made with the infusion of Calabrian citrons.
Imperdibile means “unmissable” in Italian, and this captures this drink and tonic line from Fava Bibite impeccably—premium, with excellent ingredients. The Imperidibile Cedrata is refreshing and mildly sweet, with a bright quality, and a lingering zestiness from the citron. It contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, flavorings, or preservatives.
You can absolutely enjoy the Imperidibile Cedrata on its own. Simply pour it over a couple of ice cubes, and enjoy it with some light citrusy desserts. You can also use it as a mixer or an ingredient for cocktails; it works particularly well with gin.
Inside the Brughiera Natural Park, in Como, Lombardy, you will find a small artisan company by the name of Fava Bibite. Italy has a big tradition of soft drinks, and this company is a big part of it.
Fava Bibite has been a family business for three generations, making quality soft drinks for more than fifty years. They use an old recipe, one that uses only natural aromas, and uses no preservatives nor sweeteners. They are the healthier alternative to other drinks, as Fava Bibite does not pack their products with sugar. Their range is wider than just soft drinks now, of course. They make tonics, ginger ales, and organic versions of cola. Whether drunk on their own, or mixed into cocktails, Fava Bibite guarantees quality and deliciousness.
