Bittermens "Orange Cream" Citrate 4 oz
For years, folks begged Bittermens to make an orange bitters, but their attitude always was, what with so many orange bitters already out there, who needs another one? So they decided to go about it a different way, making something that captures the essence of fresh orange that would complement bitters in a cocktail, the way they like to make things at home. "We've really been less than satisfied with the orange bitters that are generally available," they explain, "as so many orange bitters have burnt caramel in their base, giving them a very dark flavor...Riffing on an orange cream soda syrup, we created a concentrated orange cream tincture and modified it with a heavy dose of citric acid (instead of using phosphoric acid like the soda jerks used to use)." This Orange Cream Citrate is the result. It's got the sweetness of ripe orange, along with accompanying sour, tart and creamy flavors, just like the name suggests. But it is definitely not bitter, and whatever you do, don't call it orange bitters!
