I gave into the bitters monster and bought via bottles of chocolate, horribly spicy and grapefruit bitters. Three bottles, not cheap. The only other one I wanted to try currently and didn't have the monies for it, but I did have in my kitchen:

Lavender
Cloves
Ginger
Dried Orange Peel
100 Proof Vodka

So, why not try to make this on my own? I found a recipe online and now it is seeping for two weeks. I'll report how it is once it is done.

Anyone else making their own bitters?

That's a good thread. There was also a recent book on bitters that is not a bad read.

I should say what I am making is a tincture more than bitters. Unless you can make bitters without bark or other bitter type ingredients.
Thanks for the links. I thought there might be one already, but I seached for bitters on the forum and didn't find one.

I have that bitters book on my Amazon wish list!
