Um, no, I repeat I don’t like bitters. Though if you do, please read this great article and make them. I have come to learn I enjoy making simple syrups and infusing my fruity cocktailswith those.

    Thanks for this fun post – I am looking forward to checking the kinks and reading more – and my view about bitters – I think maybe a lot of us need to explore them more (even if nkt in cocktails but in food or tinctures) because our body might really benefit –
    In the meantime – cheers for a fun post here
