Cocktailpunk cocktail bitters are handmade in very small batches in Boulder, Colorado. Our bitters do not include any sugar, caramel, or added sweetener of any kind, nor is there any coloring, artificial or otherwise. We believe that bitters should be just that, bitter, and ours do not add any confusing sweetness. A great cocktail incorporates spirits with sweet, sour, and bitter components to achieve a harmonious balance, and Cocktailpunk bitters are designed do their part with great accuracy.
All our bitters are fabulous alone in cold sparkling water, and very useful for balancing often-too-sweet non-alcoholic cocktails.
Shipping: All orders ship USPS Priority with a $7.00 flat rate.
CHERRY cocktail bitters
A cherry bomb, targeted directly at (your) Manhattan. Vibrant cherry, a hint of vanilla, and subtle spice complements the oak flavors in dark spirits, but the flavor profile is simple enough to use wherever a touch of cherry is needed. You'll never need a barspoon of syrup
from the Luxardo jar again. 2.0 oz., 50% A.B.V.

ORANGE cocktail bitters
Why another orange bitters? Because bitter orange is a fundamental flavor that is essential in a wide range of cocktails. Ours is an elemental orange flavor, complemented by fennel and layered anise notes. Perfect in a Martini, but also at home with almost any spirit. 2.0 oz., 50% A.B.V.

AROMATIC cocktail bitters
The old-school workhorse. Our version of the go-to bitters, a base of baking spice is enlivened by bracing cardamom and anise notes. Use wherever standard bitters are indicated, but revel in the lack of gratuitous sweeteners and colorings. These Aromatic Bitters are perfect alone, but also work beautifully in combination with our Orange or Cherry Bitters. 2.0 oz., 50% A.B.V.

SMOKED ORANGE cocktail bitters
Smoked Orange is the new black. Orange zest is cold-smoked with alderwood, and the result is smoky but not overly intense; a finishing touch of mint adds interest. Built for and absolutely killer in tequila and mezcal drinks, but there are also unexpected and wonderful effects in combination with darker spirits. 2.0 oz., 50% A.B.V.

PASTICHE cocktail bitters
Every culture has one: an anise-flavored spirit like Absinthe, Pastis, Sambuca, or Ouzo. Such spirits are widely used in cocktails and tiki drinks... a wash here, a barspoon there, and the result is often a subtle, mysterious accent. Pastiche provides the same results in just a few squeezes, with layered anise, fennel, and licorice flavors. We don't suggest you fake a Sazerac with it, but you get the idea. 2.0 oz., 50% A.B.V.

ALPINO cocktail bitters
Amaro cocktails are all the rage, and Alpino delivers the flavors of a Mountain Amaro in a bitter, convenient, and easy-to-control format. The sage, mint, and herbal flavors can stand in for Amaro and herbal liqueurs in cocktails, but these bitters are useful and very versatile on their own. 2.0 oz., 50% A.B.V.
