Bitter flavors stimulate your body’s natural digestive processes. When our ancestors ate bitter foods, they were often tough, indigestible plants that required extra enzymes for our bodies to extract any nutrition. By adding aromatic herbs & sweetener, we can balance the bitter taste & make it pleasant to drink. Bartenders discovered that bitters can mellow the harshness of alcohol & add pleasant flavors, & thus the cocktail was born. Each kit contains specialized ingredients & equipment needed to create your own bitters. The kits do NOT contain the alcohol, fresh fruits, nuts, common spices, or sweetener that you will need for the recipes. This allows you to choose your own easily available local ingredients to suit your tastes. High proof spirits such as vodka, whiskey, or rum are recommended for extracting the most flavor from the herbs & spices. I highly recommend the book Bitters: A Spirited History of a Classic Cure-All, with Cocktails, Recipes, & Formulas by Brad Thomas Parsons & Ed Anderson as an accompaniment to this kit. I was inspired to make these kits when I first tried to make my own cocktail bitters at home. I didn’t have much luck finding milk thistle seed & burdock root in the supermarket down the road & had to order them online in huge quantities. I knew I would never be able to use all of those ingredients before they became stale & I realized that there might be other people out there who want to make their own bitters but don’t want to order a ton of weird herbs. I make these kits so other people can have fun with bitters without a huge investment. Drink up! Apprentice Cocktail Bitters Kit - Start Your Mixology Training Here
