Kinnie (pronounced Kee-Knee) was originally developed by Simonds Farsons Cisk in Malta in 1952 as an alcohol-free beverage. It is made from bitter oranges and aromatic herbs, and has a peculiar orange colour which looks like urine. Goes down well with a number of alcoholic drinks and cocktails, or with a slice of orange.
