The Flavors of Fall in a Teeny-Weeny Bottle of Booze
Cornelian cherries (the fruit of the dogwood species: Cornus mas) make a great bitters because their complex flavor includes both sweet and tart notes. Add a few more foraged, fall flavors and some VERY high proof, neutral spirits, and you have a unique cocktail ingredient that adds the finishing touch to your favorite adult beverage. This recipe embodies fall with its ripe fruit and dark, spicy roots and berries. It'll warm you up from the inside.
