Hey home bartenders! You’ve got the liquor, you’ve made the syrup and the fresh juice. How do you season your best creations? It’s time to make your own bitters. We will discuss the history of bitters, while we enjoy a tasty libation!
Then we will combine all the spices/fruits/bitter botanicals for you to make bitters at home. You will have a choice of orange bitters or aromatic bitters. You can take these packets home to soak in high-proof alcohol. With a little time and patience, you will be serving your friends homemade bitters.
We will provide all the fixins’ for bitters (minus the alcohol), along with a one-ounce dropper bottle, so you can serve them later.
We recommend you have an open-mouth jar (1L-1.5L) to steep your bitters at home.
Registration is $25 per person, and includes all supplies and use of bar tools needed for cocktail making. Please register by Friday, April 1, 2016. Class is limited to 30 guests.
