Hey guys! First off, I’d like to thank everyone that participated in the giveaway. It’s great to find so many people who are as enthusiastic about bitters as I am, as well as those who are equally excited to learn more about them. Giveaways are always a bit tough for me — I love reading everyone’s comments, and restraining myself from replying (to avoid counting confusion) proves extremely difficult. But once the contest ends I find myself a bit distraught, because it’s time to divide participants up into winners and non-winners, and I always wish I could give something to everyone! So once again, thank you for all of the great comments. The fates have spoken, and the randomly chosen winners are:
eve: I’m relatively new to bitters, but love how they bring depth to a sugary drink, even if it’s just juice & seltzer. Recent fave is the Ruby Jack from Stanton Social in NYC – Jack Daniels, pomegranate juice, lemon simple syrup and peach bitters.
Lavender Pepper: Oh wow… yeah. I did college in Albany NY as well. I remember all that.. and Fountain Day. Those were… days.
But my fave bitters are: 1) I will second your Bitter Truth Celery Bitters, but for my Bloody Marys. 2) BT Orange Bitters in my vesperesque Lillet+Gin cocktails.
