Bitters! There Are Bitters!


Some good news concerning our terrible bitters shortage: The Times suggests these German alternatives. “There are several flavors. The more unusual ones are lemon, Bittermens grapefruit and a knockout celery that is a must in a bloody mary and even in some tequila drinks. Bittermens xocolatl mole is earthy, with chocolate notes. The lemon will also work in the kitchen, to stand in for grated zest. There is also an aromatic style that tastes of spice and leather, and a straightforward orange.” At about $16 a pop these are not exactly cheap, but come on, how good does that celery sound? [Via]
