Forrest I'm surprised you don't like the rhubarb. I'm assuming it's the Fee's. I love the stuff. I have to restrain myself to keep from just dropping a straw in the bottle and drinking it.

Works really well in drinks with Fernet.

Homemade bitters can be really awesome too. We spotted a cool recipe/article a few months ago.

i'll try that, sound like possibilities..

i didn't hate them, but they were similar tones as the cherry, and a touch chemical-ly-- i'll give them another shot, and see what i see.

Hi, forrest, it's funny, I was not crazy about the Fee's Cherry (it was OK), but loved the Rhubarb. I just hit my Inner Circle Green Dot rum, Pimento Dram, Plymouth Gin, Cherry Herring, and soda with a healthy dose of the Rhubarb Bitters----GREAT! But, knowing you, I'd bet that you've already found some uses.....

I'm not sure yet if it is a fact, but I think that Angostura Aromatic Bitters is the ingredient the most used in cocktail recipes, not by quantity, but as compliment that help to create "bridges" between the flavours to combine them together. It mixes with everything, and I still have to find a spirit or an ingredient with which Angostura can't blend.
It is also a very good ingredient in cooking recipe, if you want to give a Caribbean twist to some of your recipes. For example, a marinated chicken for your barbecue.

cheers or Bonne Appйtit.

seabass, grab up one of the old cocktail guides. The, you'll be hard pressed to find many cocktails (early on, by definition) without some sort of bitters. Over the past few years, the number of bitters available has doubled. For a while, Angostura was the only "bitter" bitters that was easy to find. The Peychaud's has been available, but is used in certain cocktails.

Default Forest Floor Bitters

Dood, I found a bottle of Forest Floor Arromatic Bitters. They are made in Wisconsin. Not bad, at all. A little bit of non-bitter sweetness on the very first part of the sip. Then, a flood of Angostura-like bitters with spice and complexity. But, as I said, a step away from the stark bitter flavor of the Fee's Aromatic or Angostura. More like the Fee's Barrel Aged with a tad oil on the mouth feel. Glycerin has been added and listed as an ingredient.

Ooooh, where did you find this? I can't know there's a bitters obtainable here in California that I don't have...I'll start twitching!

I would be in your debt forever...or until I bought you a drink...whichever came first. Actually, if you can grab 2 or 3 bottles, I'd promote you to my personal hero over Paul McFadyen...
