Step 1: Ingredients
- 1/4 tsp. cacao nibs
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1 star anise pod
- 1/2 tsp. cloves
- 1/4 tsp. allspice
- 1 tbsp. cardamom
- 2 tbsp. coffee beans, cracked
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup vodka
- 1/4 cup 101 proof bourbon
Step 2: Steep
Combine all of the ingredients in a mason jar, adding the liquor last. Steep for at least a month, longer if you like. To steep, put them in a place out of direct light. It will be very hard to wait, but the end result is worth it.
Step 3: Bottle and Enjoy!
After the steeping time, you just strain and bottle up the bitters. You can even use personalized labels, like I did. Now you can enjoy them in your favorite cocktails!
