A REVIEW OF BITTERMILK COCKTAIL MIXERS

Bittermilk is a small company based in Charleston, which manufactures three cocktail mixers, the Tom Collins with Elderflowers & Hops, the Smoked Honey Whiskey Sour, and the Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned. The label of Smoked Honey Whiskey Sour describes the mixer as, “Strong and smoky with notes of honey and citrus”, whereas that of Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned describes it as, “Strong and bittersweet packed with old fashioned spices.” Then again, the label of Tom Collins with Elderflowers & Hops describes the drink as, “Bright and refreshing with vibrant lychee notes and a clean bitter finish.” Let us look into the details of these mixers from Bittermilk. Smoked Honey Whiskey Sour As the label suggest, you need to shake equal parts of mixers with Whiskey and ice. You may then garnish the drink with your favorite garnishes; most alcohol lovers go with Luxardo cherry. You can smell honey and little citrus when you raise the glass and the drink is positively summery. You will not like the cocktail if you do not like honey, but if you liked honey, you would make it your regular cocktail for sure. Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned This will be a great cocktail for the holidays, as it is good to sip when you are sitting by a fireplace. The mixer offers a nice old-fashioned dark and rich drink that reminds you of the low lights of 1930’s cocktail bars. The key point here is that the mixer is spicy and the legacy mixer will make you feel downright old fashioned. Tom Collins with Elderflowers & Hops Combine one part sparkling water, one part cocktail mixer and one part Gin to make the cocktail, as suggested by the label. Vodka can also be used to make the cocktail, but most alcohol-mongers prefer Gin to Vodka. Some say that the drink is boozy lemonade, as it is sweet and the smell reminds of the smarties; although it does not taste like smarties at all. Still, Tom Collins is the one for the sweeter set. You can buy Bittermilk Cocktail Mixers from any online liquor store. Trying these cocktails at this time of the year would be a smart move, and you can even serve them to your fall parties.
