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.”
—The Balance, Hudson Repository Published on May 13, 1806, New York.
Beverage recommendations: ÌÎ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ¢We call this extract the wild-card. The unique combination of herbs and spices work with heavy and robust cocktails and sodas, as well as light and fragrant. Certainly the sneak attack extract!
Cooking recommendations: ÌÎ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ¢Chocolate is a perfect match but this extract pushes dynamic flavour into ice creams, house made yoghurts, petit fours and candies. Beef juices deglazed become a sensual culinary experience adding depth and spice to the finished sauce.
