Campfire Bitters

Like spices used to enhance foods, bitters help align flavors and add complexity to cocktails. These bitters from High Camp Flasks have an underlying smoke that captures the essence of sitting around a campfire under tall fir trees. Made in collaboration with small-batch artisans Owl & Whale, the bitters undergo a 60-day aging process. The final product is steeped in notes of forest floor, charred wood, peat, malty cinnamon and pepper.

Runamok maple syrup

Cocktail syrups can add balance and a bit of sweetness to a drink, while allowing you to reduce the number of ingredients. Vermont-based, family-owned company Runamok offers a cocktail syrup in its line of mixers and bitters that adds warmth, sophistication and fall flavor. The basis of this product is premium organic maple syrup, which the company began tapping in 2009. The barrel-aged syrup is smoked over pecan wood and contains orange essence, spices and cherry extract. Whiskey and maple syrup bring out the best in each other. Mix one part Runamok syrup with four parts whiskey for a cocktail of leather and velvet. It’s like setting up camp while gazing up at the night sky on a fall evening. Runamok is sold in Metro Atlanta at Lucy’s Market and Spicy Peach.
