Sunshine Bitters

San Francisco neighborhood joint Nopa has garnered a lot of attention for its tasty, straightforward food, but its drinks are what keep us coming back. These bitters are made in-house at the restaurant and used in the aptly named Girasol cocktail.

Game plan: These bitters can keep indefinitely.

This recipe was featured as part of our Bringing Bitters Back project.
