Orange Bitters #6

Orange bitters were once a common ingredient in cocktails, but had fallen by the wayside by modern times. Importantly, they were once a required ingredient for the Martini. Gary, in his search for orange bitters, encountered a recipe published in "The Gentleman’s Companion: An Exotic Drinking Book", by Charles H. Baker, Jr. Using that has a starting point, he gradually worked up a recipe for personal use. He first published it in "The Book of Bourbon" as "Orange Bitters #4".

Later, he teamed up with the Sazerac Company, to try to provide his recipe commercially. It took two more formulations before they could arrive at a recipe which would work, and pass the scrutiny of the TTB (Tax & Trade Bureau). Orange Bitters #6 is now widely available from various sources.
