The Bitter Truth Grapefruit Bitters do not fail in representing this oversized but under-used citrus. With an instantaneous boost of the zingy breakfast fruit on the first sniff, you get both the bitter oils but also the classic sharp tang on the tongue, too. Alongside there are complex vegetal tones and a dry hop finish. These bitters are best friends to gin, vodka, blanco tequila and light rum and are a wonderful ingredient for citrus-heavy drinks that may otherwise taste excessively sweet. Grapefruit meets with hops to create a fresh, bright citrus note, and makes for a nice addition in fizzy and fruity drinks as well.
The Bitter Truth Grapefruit Bitters reminds one of summers outdoors. Delicate to the nose, these bitters can stand up to aggressive drinks. Give a modern twist to a classic Gin and Tonic with a couple of dashes of Maraschino and the Grapefruit Bitters – or add dashes to a Daiquiri or Paloma to add a new layer of complexity to cocktails that traditionally didn’t include bitters.
