Dubonnet Cocktail

Dubonnet is an herbal fortified wine, similar to vermouth. Vermouths traditionally have wormwood to provide the main herbal and bitter component (although not as much now), whereas Dubonnet is a brand name of a quinquina, where the major flavor is cinchona bark. Cinchona provides quinine, which gives tonic water its bitterness as well. (There is a third category of "bitter" fortified wines, called americano, which uses gentian root for bitterness. They are often considered a sub-class of quinquina, as they will often have both cinchona and gentian root. Read more about Dubonnet Cocktail
