How to Pronounce quinine?

"Quinine" in context

Quinine is a naturally occurring, bitter-tasting compound derived from the bark of the South American cinchona plant. It has been used for centuries as an antipyretic (fever-reducing) and an anti-malarial drug. Its use has been documented in texts as far back as 1632. Quinine is especially valuable in the treatment of malaria because it interferes with the multiplication of the malaria parasite in the red blood cells, preventing the parasites from becoming resistant to standard anti-malarial drugs. Furthermore, quinine's side effects are generally mild compared to many other anti-malarial drugs.
