Amaro cocktails are all the rage, and Alpino delivers the flavors of a Mountain Amaro in a bitter, convenient, and easy-to-control format. The sage, mint, and herbal flavors can stand in for Amaro and herbal liqueurs in cocktails, but these bitters are useful and very versatile on their own.
Cocktailpunk cocktail bitters are handmade in very small batches in Boulder, Colorado. These bitters do not include any sugar, caramel, or added sweetener of any kind, nor is there any coloring, artificial or otherwise. Cocktailpunk believe that bitters should be just that, bitter, and theirs do not add any confusing sweetness. A great cocktail incorporates spirits with sweet, sour, and bitter components to achieve a harmonious balance, and Cocktailpunk bitters are designed do their part with great accuracy.
All Cocktailpunk bitters are fabulous alone in cold sparkling water, and very useful for balancing often-too-sweet non-alcoholic cocktails.

A gray area, Black Manhattan-wise. They say rye loves amaro, but this is more like a sizzling hook-up.
