H & H’s Aromatic Bitters Recipe:

Instructions

Heat the quassia, cardamom, orange peel, anise and cloves for a couple of minutes in hot pan until they become quite fragrant. Combine the spices plus the catechu, ginger with a bottle of whiskey in an appropriately sized glass container. Steep for two weeks. On the last day, steep the malva flowers overnight in the water, then strain and reserve the colored water.

Strain the infusion through several layers of cheesecloth. Add the malva water, then decant into woozy or bitter bottles.

.@DavidWondrich nice, I haven't listened to Jethro Tull in a long time, I might need to dig up the old cassette.
The first concert I went to was "The Cult" at Cobo Hall in Detroit on January 20th, 1990.

@ryanfeeley the kit is because people like to try the Acid Phosphate as well, so I bundle and discount.
