last saturday i completed step two of the homemade bitters experiment and so far so good! they smell amazing and it seems like they’re coming along quite nicely.
basically the second step was a lot of straining, a little simmering, and then back into the jars for another week of darkness.
here is the result of the first step which made a lot more bitters than i expected. i may be gifting some of this to some lucky friends and neighbors.
the final step is this weekend! still deciding what my first cocktail is going to be. i’ve been drinking a lot of these lately, so i may just use the grapefruit bitters to add a little twist to it.
