From elixir to mixer
Many of us have heard of bitters, but aren’t really sure what they are besides an ingredient in old-school cocktails and another generation’s remedy for unsettled stomachs. Bitters are about more than nostalgia. In fact, they are making a comeback in restaurants and bars, and Urban Moonshine is making it easy to join the classic cocktail revival with handcrafted organic bitters and tonics from Vermont.
Urban Moonshine founder Jovial King, a practiced herbalist, has achieved just the right balance of old and new in her refined bitters. She harnesses the power of local plants, steeping herbs, roots, leaves, berries and fruits in alcohol to create intense flavoring agents. Bitters are available in Original blend, Citrus flavor or Maple. The company also makes tonics, which are medicinal bitters, such as Immune Zoom for fighting the common cold. These organic bitters and herbal tonics are packaged in glass apothecary bottles that perfectly capture the classic-yet-exotic spirit of Jovial’s creations.
"Meals often don't include bitter tastes, but they're important for healthy living," Jovial explains. "They act as a signal to your body to stimulate digestion." For festive occasions, Jovial suggests adding Urban Moonshine bitters to cocktails to complement other distilled spirits, such as gin. You'll only need a few drops to make your favorite martini more flavorful, since the alcohol content of bitters can reach 45% or higher. And should you happen to over indulge, bitters make a great hangover remedy, too.
Jovial KingSpecial Guest/ProducerNov 2nd, 2010 @ 5:44 PM Tonics are not actually bitters but in their own classification as herbs that build, strengthen and tonify. Tonics work best when taken over time... days, weeks and months… to strengthen your immune system or your energy levels. In the end wellness is about staying health and preventing sickness not just treating the symptoms that occur once you are not feeling well. To your health!
