Feature homemade bitters if you happen to have them.
This bitters-forward cocktail is a great way to show off homemade bitters—such as these yarrow bitters, but storebought bitters will work just fine. Play around with different flavored fruit syrups as the sweetener to create the cocktail of your dreams.
- 2 ounces gin
- 1 ounce fruit syrup
- 1/4 ounce limoncello
- 1 ounce seltzer
- 5 drops bitters
- In a shaker full of ice, combine the gin, syrup, and limoncello. Shake for 30 seconds, then strain into a glass. Top with the seltzer and bitters, and give the cocktail a gentle stir. For a lighter cocktail, add an additional ounce of seltzer and pour over ice.
