Bitter Lemon Cocktail Syrup
Maker: Pratt Standard
Bitter Lemon is a classic relative of tonic water, characterized by it’s punch of bitterness balanced by lemon. We use the natural source of quinine, Cinchona Bark, along with fresh lemon juice, lemon peel, and fresh lemon oil to make an authentic, pre-prohibition base for a bitter lemon soda. Combine this syrup with seltzer (1:3) to make bitter lemon soda, and add any liquor you like to make a refreshingly bitter cocktail.
