Our Bitter Lemon Syrup, available only seasonally, is a classic relative of tonic, characterized by its 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 to make a refreshingly bitter cocktail.
One 16oz. bottle makes 16 drinks. Shelf stable for 12 months. Refrigerate after opening. Will keep refrigerated for 6-12 months.
