We’re back at it again – making blueberries a part of our yearly holiday celebrations! (You might recall this delightful blueberry shrub concoction from last year…which is still getting put on annual rotation – can we talk about those prosciutto wrapped blueberry garnishes btw). But this year I wanted to try something different and learn something new – so after a bit of research I decided I would take a stab at bitters.

I’ve never made my own bitters before and thought it was time to start. How difficult could it be? Answer – not difficult at all – in fact, so very simple. All you need are a few ingredients and some patience.

This blueberry bitter would be an exceptional counterpart to a variety of holiday drinks and spirits – it’s bright, just the right amount of woodsy without being overly fruity and it has a tiny hint of citrus from the orange peels. Not to mention this bitter is an easy and unexpected edible gift to bottle up for friends. I mean, if shopping for cute glass bitters bottles isn’t reason enough to try this recipe out, then I don’t know what is.
