Details: For a refreshing thirst-quencher, mix a few drops of this extract based on licorice and other plants into your daily water (the exact ingredients are still a closely guarded secret).

One bottle is enough to flavor 85 liters of water, hence the well-known advertising slogan La meilleure façon de boire de l'eau (the best way to drink water).

It's an instant pick-me-up; what's even better, it's sugar free and contains no artificial sweeteners, deriving its sweetness naturally from the licorice.

One glass contains less than one calorie.

You can mix it with water (hot or cold), sparkling water, tea, coffee, or milk.

Some even use it as a culinary aid, to accentuate the fennel taste in certain Mediterranean dishes, or to flavor yogurts, ice creams, or sorbets without adding sugar.

Antésite contains licorice (glycyrrhizin).

In 1898 a young pharmacist, Noel Perrot-Berton, was challenged by a railroad executive to invent a drink--without alcohol--that would quench the thirst of the stokers who toiled in the heat. The result: antésite, which gets its name from the Latin ante (against) situm (thirst). A bit of trivia: on the French stage, it's often antésite that gives water the color of "whisky."
