Stop by the Jefferson Randall’s next week to try the Kentucky Island!
George Randall discovered these on his last trip to sunny Arizona and thought these bitter would go over great here- and we can’t disagree with him! AZ Bitters Lab produces two small batch bitters, Maz Mole with cocoa nibs and chiles; and Figgy Pudding.
These intense, aromatic bitters add so much to any classic cocktail. We’ve posted a couple of recipes below to get you started.
- 2 oz reposado or añejo tequila
- 1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 oz agave syrup (half agave nectar, half water)
- 1-2 dashes of AZBL Más Mole bitters
Add all ingredients in to a shaker, add ice, shake for 20 seconds, double strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.
- 2.5 oz of your favorite rye or bourbon
- 1 oz of good sweet vermouth
- 1 dash of AZBL Figgy Pudding bitters
- (optional) 1 barspoon of Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
- garnish, orange zest
Add whiskey, vermouth, maraschino, and bitters to mixing glass. Add ice, stir for 20-30seconds, strain into chilled rocks glass (no ice). Rub orange zest around the rim and drop in glass
And a variation on the Old Fashioned, with Apple Brandy and MAs Mole:
- 2 oz Laird’s Applejack
- 0.25 oz Averna
- 0.25 oz Sweet Vermouth
- 2 dashes AZBL Más Mole bitters
- 1 sugar cube
Drop the cube in a glass and douse with a couple of dashes of bitters. Splash in a bit of Applejack and muddle. Add remaining ingredients along with some ice, stir, strain into a Old Fashioned glass with a single piece of ice. Orange peel for a garnish.
