About Bittered Sling Extracts
In 2008, Bartender Lauren Mote started making extracts and bitters for the sheer love of science and experimentation. After the creation of over 43 different kinds that expressed ingredients and their tasting notes, Mote’s extracts developed into an award-winning cocktail program, and hundreds of worthy cocktails. In 2010, Mote partnered in life and business with Chef Jonathan Chovancek, and Kale & Nori was born. Over the next two years they would tirelessly develop recipes and applications for extracts to become the bridge between culinary and the cocktail. Bittered Sling Extracts is a pipe-dream come to a tasty fruition, celebrating what beautiful ingredients can provide the palate, plate and potion.
Where did the name “Bittered Sling” come from?
“Cocktail: a stimulating liquor composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water & bitters. It is vulgarly called a bittered sling and is supposed to be an excellent electioneering potion.”

Aromatic creations beg for this extract – an Aviation, a Negroni, a Caprihinia, a Margarita! This extract LOVES white spirits! As is true with our entire line, this extract is amazing just in sparkling water – thirst quenching and palate-cleansing.
Brilliant with fish and shellfish, replacing the final squeeze of citrus to deglaze or season. We love the herbaceous bitterness which pushes forward rich and spicy cuisine.
