5 by 5 Tonics Co. - Aromatic Bitters 1.7oz/50ml
Five by Five Aromatic Bitters strike a balance between old-fashioned and modern aromatic bitters. These bitters are highly complex and blended based on the individual botanical characteristics. The purpose of these bitters is to compliment the flavors of modern craft spirits and mixers while imparting a bold and interesting flavor to any style of cocktail.
This is a truly handmade product crafted meticulously from botanical to bottle.
Mixing Notes These bitters pair exceptionally well with the vanilla and spice flavors in most craft American Whiskies. The botanical arrangement in these bitters is meant to compliment and never clash with modern craft American Gin.
Tasting Notes Pepper and subtle bitters initially, and a strong aromatic activity in the nose.
2 oz Rye Whiskey
1-2 Dashes Five by Five Aromatic Bitters
1 sugar cube or
.5 oz rich simple syrup
Place a sugar cube at the bottom of an old fashioned glass and coat with bitters. Gradually add whiskey and ice while stirring until all ingredients are fully integrated. Garnish with an orange peel.
Notes: This is the classic cocktail. The making of an Old Fashioned is not as simple as it appears by the recipe. Traditionally it required a sugar cube and it takes careful stirring to dissolve the sugar completely as the drink is being made. Simple syrup definitely does make this easier, but takes away from some of the traditional labor involved. A simple orange peel twisted into the glass and pressed over the entire rim of the glass is sufficient garnish.
