The smoked chili’s Hella found for this formula are unlike anything you’ve tasted before. The bitters they crafted with them are satisfyingly spicy, rich, smoky and transportive, adding a know-not-what depth to your cocktails. Simply put, margaritas will never be the same.
Hella Bitter is a small-batch cocktail bitters company founded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and with its heart in the Bay Area. What began in the early 2000s as a hobby turned serious in 2011, when we did a Kickstarter to raise money to make 50 bottles of citrus bitters. We must have struck a nerve because we raised more than twice what we had set out to, and with that inspiration, Hella Bitter went from being a weekend project, to being a serious pursuit of the delicious.
Hella like to call their Citrus a full spectrum bitters. Rather than focus on a single fruit they decide from as many as nine types of citrus pith for this recipe. The result is fantastic; full, bright and aromatic. Fantastic in your cooking too!
