Those of us who are into cocktail culture and hand crafted cocktails, are familiar with this ingredient, mandatory to make a Manhattan, Old Fashioned and other plethora of cocktails. Bitters are so beloved these days that hardly a visit to your best handcrafted libations institution is with out them. Bitters should not just be regulated to cocktail scene for sure, because they have medicinal qualities (act as a digestif for the tummy impaired, which makes your tummy feel better on an upset day), just a dash or two in club soda will work just fine, and are really great to use in baking as well as vinaigrettes from salads to marinades for the grill. The aroma alone on these will make you want to put them in your bath and dream the day away!
At Orange Blush we are very proud to be carrying a brand that is hand crafted from our hometown roots, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where we might be small on size, but huge on pride! 
The team over at Bittercube, makes certain that your bitters are made with natural ingredients and have a great enough flavor profile to each handcrafted batch of bitters that you wouldn’t want to choose another brand. At my house we love them..and to ensure you do too, with every order from you,  I send out a recipe card for the best bad ass manhattans my gifted mixtress girlfriend, Nicole can make! It is such great recipe that her husband requests Manhattans every Sunday, usually beginning around 4pm. Savor Sundays! I mean, who really looks forward to Mondays, anyway! But you have to order to obtain the secret recipe!
Currently we carry the delicious and always necessary (the almost sold out) cherry bark vanilla, the Corazon which is a delicious, dark chocolate, spicy flavor (divine in coffee! and a small batch varietal), orange bitters (a great staple) and the fantastic gift set containing 6 flavors cherry bark vanilla, bolivar, orange, Jamaican 1 and 2, and blackstrap, for your bitters connoisseur.
See below for some recipes that are guaranteed to be a hit with your next mixer..I mean party..I mean chocolate cake, or coffee…you get the idea!  Also see our great line of drink glasses from space theme to cocktail spirts! If you're looking to make a gift package we have it all!
