Bad Dog Bar Craft - Fire & Damnation Bitters
(habanero, black tea, subtle smoke)
A Bad Dog take on a historical recipe, first found in “The Gentlemen’s Companion” by Charles Baker Jr in 1939. In measured doses adds the right amount of heat and intrigue to a cocktail; too much…a nuclear explosion.
Key Flavor Components Capsaicin spice, black tea, subtle smoke and green vegetal pepper.
Suggested Use A few drops and dashes in classic cocktails add whole new dimension — a volcanic Daiquiri, a spicy Blood and Sand, a Texas-fired El Diablo.
