The Bitter Truth Celery Bitters have an rich bouquet of flavors such as white grape, Sencha tea, lemon grass, celery leaf and fresh root ginger. It juggles artistically on the tongue as well, adding coriander seed, fresh celery and chicory to the foray. Add to a Red Snapper for the thinking person’s Bloody Mary. It’s obligatory with grassy spirits too, try a good measure in a Ti Punch or just a tickle in a gin and tonic for something to make the neighbors envious. A lost ingredient. Defunct for decades. Now revived to please the most discriminating palate.
