100 Proof (ABV 50%)
A cherry bomb, targeted directly at (your) Manhattan. Vibrant cherry, a hint of vanilla, and subtle spice complements the oak flavors in dark spirits, but the flavor profile is simple enough to use wherever a touch of cherry is needed. You'll never need a barspoon of syrup from the Luxardo jar again. 2.0 oz., 50% A.B.V.
Cocktailpunk cocktail bitters are handmade in very small batches in Boulder, Colorado. Our bitters do not include any sugar, caramel, or added sweetener of any kind, nor is there any coloring, artificial or otherwise. We believe that bitters should be just that, bitter, and ours do not add any confusing sweetness. A great cocktail incorporates spirits with sweet, sour, and bitter components to achieve a harmonious balance, and Cocktailpunk bitters are designed do their part with great accuracy.
All our bitters are fabulous alone in cold sparkling water, and very useful for balancing often-too-sweet non-alcoholic cocktails.
