Bittermens Commonwealth Tonic Liqueur
Bittermens Commonwealth Tonic Liqueur is a small batch bitter making its mark on the cocktail scene. In cities like New York, Boston, and San Francisco, cocktail enthusiasts and bartenders are rediscovering long-lost recipes and coming up with new signature flavors which help create the palate of the New American Cocktail.
Originally developed as the Bittermens house tonic, this liqueur makes a properly bitter, old-school tonic water when diluted with about 6-8 parts soda water. The maceration method used to produce it extracts a deeper bitterness and more floral quinine flavors than those characteristic to the new-style tonic waters on the market. The Commonwealth also works well to add a touch of bitterness and sourness to any number of cocktails.
