The Bitter Housewife's Cardamom Bitters were originally created as part of a signature cocktail for a good friend’s bachelorette getaway. The drink was a hit, but they weren't sure what else they would use them for so they started playing around. It turns out cardamom goes with just about everything. They often call them duplicitous because they add a lovely depth to sweeter fruit-based drinks, but also blend right in with the smoky characteristics of an anejo tequila or scotch.
To some our Cardamom Bitters remind them of Christmas spice cookies, but others think of garam masala or lamb skewers. They are as much savory as they are sweet and that’s why they’re so fun.
