Feeling A Little Bitter
I’ve been feeling a little bitter lately, friends. Not of the grudge-holding variety , though (I’ve never been one to hang onto perceived grievances, sometimes even when maybe I should’ve!). No, I’m talking about bitterness of the hooch persuasion.
My new, new book (I’ll have two books publishing in 2014, one in the spring and another in come autumn) deals with beverages. To that end, I’m toying around with four seasons worth of bitters. Pictured above are (left to right): rhubarb, berry, pear, and orange. They’ll steep over the next three weeks, and then I’ll add them to four seasonally-themed cocktails. I’ve been having so much fun concocting them. Makes me feel like a kitchen alchemist, or a green witch. Whatever it is, I like it.
Why get mad, when you can get bitter?
