Creole Bitters

The Bitter Truth Creole Bitters Creole equals flavorful, and these bitters are as unique as the culture it encapsulates. With fruit scents of dried apricots, cherries and cranberries mingling with the strong flavors of anise, smoked paprika and hints of smoking pine wood. This bitters smells like a kitchen in the French Quarter. On the first taste comes cayenne and pink pepper corns supported by anise, big red cinnamon, dusky caraway and fennel seed. Add this to a French 75, or for that matter, any drink that could do with perking up, turn on a brass band and get your feet moving!
