Hella Bitter Bitters

photoSo after much anticipation, my bitters kit came in the mail today just after dinner. I’ve made bitters before, but this was clearly a kit designed by experts with little or no margin for error.  All the tools, rules, and step-by-step directions where there in the very cleverly designed box.

I deviated from the basic recipe but still followed their recipe for the advance “crafty” type of bitters.  For the aromatic herbs I added two cinnamon sticks as suggested, along with Rittenhouse rye which is 100 proof.  For the citrus herbs I chose a dry gin and used dried cranberries.

So its quite easy from here. Now I wait for at least three weeks, shaking the bottles every other day to be sure the herbs macerate with the spirits.
