E-DRUG: Quinine Syrup (cont)

E-drug: Quinine Syrup (cont)
Dear David,
For masking the bitter taste of quinine hydrochloride solution, it is
reported that cocoa syrup was the most successful.  Further ideas proposed
doubling the flavour concentration, increasing the sweetness (sugar
content), adding sodium chloride, adding excess citric acid to
fruit-flavoured syrups and increasing viscosity of solutions. (Ref:
