Busy lil tonic but so very tasty in an Old Fashioned~
This is my first batch in a larger scale so the portions may alter as the bitters age.
Combine in a large mason jar, shake hard every day for three weeks. Strain well (think: cheesecloth) If the flavour is too strong, you can make a tea from the strained ingredients and dilute to taste. Enjoy!
You can find most herbs in any herbal pharmacy. I added a bit of a 'Lover's Blend' herbal mix (Finlandia Pharmacy, Vancouver, Bc) just for fun~
