The Postscript is alwayse a hit. It is super light, but definitely incorporates hearty fall flavor. The Bitters Lab Apricot Vanilla Bitters really ties together all of the flavors. Bitters are really amazing at pulling together all the complex components of a cocktail and giving you a full-balanced flavor profile…and the Apricot Vanilla bitters do this really well. These bitters also aren’t too heavy, so you can use quite a bit of them if you want to add even more apricot flavor.
