Lemon and cardamom bitters -- ideas?

Boston_Otter | Jan 15, 201302:30 PM     11

I recently received several bottles of bitters as a gift, and while I've been using the orange bitters and, especially, the Fee Bros. Old Fashioned bitters quite a lot, I haven't found any good use so far for other ones. The lemon bitters have a lovely flavor and I could see them being used more as a cooking ingredient than a cocktail bitter, but the Scrappy's Cardamom bitters are just overwhelming. A drop or two, and whatever I'm drinking is infused with intense cardamom flavors... and I haven't yet found a drink in which that's a good thing. Any ideas?
