While managing a bar in San Francisco, part of Genevieve Brazelton's job was coming up with a 10-drink seasonal cocktail menu every few months. (We'd do that for free...hint, hint.) Soon, she was hooked, but not on hooch. Homemade tinctures, infusions, and syrups became her obsession, and later, her business. Add her potions to your poison of choice, and get the same mouthwatering results as if you'd patiently infused exotic ingredients for months.
Bright, herbal, and pine-y, Citrus Rosemary syrup brings summery zing to cocktails, Prosecco, or plain seltzer. Flowery, warm, menthol-kissed cardamom bitters—a key ingredient in a number of pre-Prohibition cocktails—add depth to sweeter, fruitier drinks, and also blends right in with the smoky characteristics of an anejo tequila or scotch. Together, the pair sings particularly well with gin (they make a dynamite Tom Collins), but also play nicely with vodka, tequila, or rum. Handmade in Portland, Oregon.
