Featured Cocktail: Bittermilk No. 4 New Orleans Style Old Fashioned Rouge

When it comes to a good cocktail, we know faster isn’t always better.  Bittermilk is a line of cocktail mixers we love, focused on real ingredients, interesting flavors, and bar-quality taste that’s easy to make.  Lately, we’ve been feeling a little edgy and getting inspired with bohemian trends for fall.  Bittermilk’s No. 4 New Orleans Style Old Fashioned Rouge is definitely a little bohemian and a lot of class.

This mixer is made with organic cane sugar and lemon peel, and spices like wormwood, gentian root, and cochineal.  It’s based off a traditional Sazerac, with flavor notes reminiscent of Absinthe.  Just mix 1 part Bittermilk No. 4 with 4 parts rye whiskey, stir with ice, and strain.  We served ours in our gold letter rocks glass with a big square ice cube.  Shop all bar items.
