Over the weekend I dipped into a scrumptious tonic that I bought awhile back as a special treat to save for a special occasion. What was the occasion, you might ask? Well, it was a raging Saturday evening that included binge-watching Californication, — yes I know I’m six years behind on that show — making homemade quesadillas, and tying one on. Wilson and I are the best of drinking buds.
Anywho, I was so excited that I finally dipped into this tonic because it truly was a special experience.
Friends, allow me to formally introduce you to Bittermilk. I featured Bittermilk on my guys’ gift guide in December, but now you two really have to meet. SST readers , meet Bittermilk — Bittermilk, meet SST.
You’re both welcome.
Bittermilk is a line of handmade cocktail mixers made from real ingredients and bottled by hand. Side note — isn’t a bit ridiculous that you have to specifically say something is made from real ingredients because otherwise it most likely does not include real ingredients? WTF. Sorry, soap box. But for real, this mixer is the shit.
The best part about Bittermilk? All I did was fill my mule mug with some ice, and mix equal parts vodka, club soda, and Bittermilk. And then a lil’ more vod. Garnish with a lime and bam! You’ve got yourself a drink good enough for a fancy occasion.
Nothing says a southern Savannah Saturday like a strong cocktail and a good porch session.
The tonic that I bought is the Charred Grapefruit Tonic, which tastes a little similar to a Moscow Mule but, in my opinion, better. Those damn Moscow Mules are so trendy these days that I’m glad to be done with them.
So, if you are looking for something to elevate a regular ol’ day, try Bittermilk. But really, any day with homemade quesadillas is anything but regular.
