Pure Refreshment: Bitter Lemon and Vodka

Yes, I tend toward good beer but sometimes I need to switch things up a bit. Working here, I have some of the best, all natural mixers available to me, right at my fingertips. Since I had never tried it before, I thought it was high time to bring home a bottle of Fever-Tree Bitter Lemon.

Fever-Tree Bitter Lemon and Vodka

Everything I’ve ever read about this mixer screamed “perfect for summer” to me. Words like “clean,” “refreshing,” and “balanced” are perfect descriptors. This past week’s heat wave required a beverage that claimed to be all three, and Bitter Lemon did not disappoint.

Created with a blend of Sicilian lemons, cold-pressed orange oils, cane sugar, spring water and quinine, Fever-Tree Bitter Lemon is a lovely substitution for any cocktail in which you might normally use tonic water, changing up the flavor with a zesty zing.

I’ll be picking up a few more bottles today. If you haven’t tried it yet, I urge you to do the same.

Cheers!

    Try it with gin, Aperol (or other bitter Italian aperitivo) and some simple syrup for a really awesome drink! I love Fever Tree, especially the Bitter Lemon.
