My First Bitters

Just started my first batch in a nice 375ml corked bottle. Used to hold a half bottle of tequila.

- Fill with grain alcohol
- Funky white raisins from the chinese supermarket
- 8 saffron threads
- 3 allspice berries
- 8 Sichuan peppercorns
- Piece dried tangerine peel
- 1 whole walnut meat toasted
- 4 regular peppercorns
- 1 smallish stick true cinnamon (not cassia)
- 4 cardomon pods crushes
- 1 small star anise crushed
- One nice 5 second grind of nutmeg
- 3 clove buds
- 1/2 TSP Gentian
- 1/2 TSP grains of paradise
- 1/4 TSP chichona
- 1/4 TSP wormwood
- 1/2 TSP valerian
- 2 small bay leaves
- zest of one meyer lemon
- zest of one lime

Gonna wait at least 2 weeks.

Thinking of adding a dash to some Cava. Not a manly drink, but bet it'll rock.

Also maybe just a dash in some cold gin.

Then certainly with gin and a spritz of citrus, served very cold.

It's gonna be a long 2 weeks.
