The Bitter Truth: Grapefruit

I picked up this beautiful bottle of bitters while in Buffalo over the weekend:

The Bitter Truth: Grapefruit Bitters

I haven’t made a cocktail with them yet, but the bitters were delicious in a glass of lemonade.

Check them out at The Bitter Truth’s website.

The Start Of A Bitters Bottle Collection

I like old bitters bottles.

I’ve got the start of a little collection going, which is just this fernet-style bottle and an Underberg as well as some of the more mainstream and traditional brands.

I’m going to an auction at a bar today and then up to Buffalo, so if I see anything neat (bitters or otherwise) at either the auction or some stores, I’ll post here if its cocktails related. Hopefully I’ll hit up a worthwhile antique shop.

Antique Mixology: Lash’s Bitters

I spotted this antique bitters bottle while antique shopping in Salamanca, N.Y.

A quick Google search turned up this historical site about the bottle as well as this site about the antique glass/bitters bottles market.

Neat stuff. Might have to make another trip out to Salamanca to get this.

Bitters At The Bar!

Earlier this week I wrote about a package of bitters that arrived in the mail.

Well, here’s a shot today of them on the shelf behind the bar:

Not something the average bar customer sees up close, but I wanted to get a good shot of the bitters… So forgive the fact that you can see “behind the curtain” so to speak.

Bitters By Mail

Got a special delivery in the mail yesterday!

Bought ’em through the Buffalo Trace online store!

Probably going to need to order another bottle or two for the bar in a month or so, but I think that next time I’ll go through the Sazerac Company gift shop. Maybe order a t-shirt or something too!
