Fire and Damnation Bitters

Fire and Damnation BittersA Bad Dog take on a historical recipe, first found in “The Gentlemen’s Companion” by Charles Baker Jr in 1939. In measured doses adds the right amount of heat and intrigue to a cocktail; too much…a nuclear explosion.

Key Flavor Components: Capsaicin spice, black tea, subtle smoke and green vegetal pepper.

Suggested Use: A few drops and dashes in classic cocktails add whole new dimension — a volcanic Daiquiri, a spicy Blood and Sand, a Texas-fired El Diablo.
