Mint bitters

 
I forgot to mention one thing in yesterday's review of the Italian beer tasting we attended in NYC.

I began the evening with a lovely cocktail of Michter's Straight Rye, ginger ale, a wedge of lime and a few shakes of mint bitters. Yes, mint bitters. From Fee Brothers.

It was a most delicious cocktail.  Reminicent of a mint julep, but ya know...different.

And different is cool.  Especially when it comes to cocktails.  Give mint bitters a try if you wanna shake up your cocktail.  I thought it was pretty damn cool.

2abes - for some reason, mint seems to go well with whiskey.

Savannah - it won't let you down.

Wil - and poor Joseph died awful young.

Candy - I'll have to trust you on the lip gloss.

Slyde - you may force me to tell your toasted almond story.

Jimmy- you can't go wrong with lager.

Heff - you only use a couple of drops.
