The old-school workhorse. Cocktail Punk's version of the go-to bitters, a base of subtle baking spice is enlivened by bracing cardamom and anise notes. Use wherever standard bitters are indicated, but revel in the lack of gratuitous sweeteners and colourings. These Aromatic Bitters are perfect alone, but also work beautifully in combination with Cocktail Punk Orange or Cherry Bitters.
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.
2 oz gin, Plymouth preferred
2 or 3 lusty squeezes of Cocktailpunk Aromatic Bitters
Add bitters to a small well-chilled coupe, swirl to coat the glass and discard the excess. Add the gin, and garnish with a lemon patch, expressing oils into the drink.
Pink Gin, modernized. For gin-lovers, or the British. A perfect way to appreciate any of the Cocktailpunk bitters.
