Round out your next Manhattan or Old Fashioned with a few dashes of this potent concoction. Game plan: Simply straining the alcohol through a fine-mesh strainer will leave a few cloudy particles behind (which aren’t harmful). If you want completely clear bitters, strain through a coffee filter nested in the strainer. The bitters will last indefinitely when stored in an airtight container in a dark spot. This recipe was featured in our Bringing Bitters Back story.
