Bob uses dried Italian fruit for a clean, crisp taste with that deep, distinctively grapefruity, bitter edge to create this punchy elixir.
Bob’s Grapefruit Bitters were originally created for legendary Dorchester Bar Manager, Guiliano Morandin who used them to create his signature martini, The Perfect Ten. This is an off-dry blend of Tanqueray Ten, Lillet Blanc and Bob’s Grapefruit Bitters, which provides a citrus-nuanced, yet smooth, cocktail.
Bob recommends trying Grapefruit Bitters in the Smoking Barrel cocktail for a sweet and sour sensation.

Bob’s Grapefruit Bitters would also work well in an Asian dressing – adding a little bitter back note, or jiggered onto an exotic fruit platter.More recipes
