Episode 13 - Bitters

Drunk Monkeys - Episode 13 - Bitters

Jen and Erica are really getting into the "things you normally drink mixed with other things" spirit by tasting three different bitters: Angostura, Peychaud's and Fee Brothers' Grapefruit.

Erica mentions the Sazerac, one of our favorite cocktails, and Watershed, one of our favorite Chicago bars for cocktails. A bartender at Watershed introduced us to a remedy for the hiccups that seems to have worked for us so far: a half-shot of bitters followed by biting on a lemon wedge.

Erica notes that bitters are about 40% alcohol, but I learned from Hella Bitter that bitters are classified as a condiment, and so may be sold in grocery stores and the like.
