We feel a little like we're entering Fantasy Island whenever we add a dash of Forbidden Bitters into our drinks. Spicy, exotic, and mysterious, this tincture by Los Angeles-based Miracle Mile Bitters Co. is based on traditional herbal aromatic bitters, and is most akin to Angostura bitters. Bold, flavorful, and earthy, it combines zedoary, angelica root, galangal, vanilla, clove, cinnamon, and cardamom. It's a great addition for aged spirits that we'd like to think Ricardo Montalban would've approved.
Miracle Mile proprietor Louis Anderman recently launched The Drunkard's Almanac with his brother, chronicling cocktail recipes that coincide with a commemorative day. The cocktails range from classic, pre-prohibition drinks, to newer renditions like the notable In Cold Blood recipe in ode to Truman Capote. It is a fun and endlessly fascinating resource not only for recipes but for historical events. Check it out and follow them on Instagram.
