Lemon Lime & Bitters Recipe

This was my go-to drink while Sexy Nerd and I were visiting my family in Australia. Interestingly, we were told this drink is often served to children because the alcohol content is fairly low.

I really can't imagine that going over well in the US!

Why isn't Lemon Lime & Bitters popular here? It's so good!

Same question of Vegemite and Violet Crumble bars, while we're at it.

While I may not be able to recreate my beloved Vegemite (though I've seen a few disastrously messy blog posts where people have tried), making Lemon Lime & Bitters is easy peasy, lemon (lime and bitters) squeezy.

See what I did there? Yeah, I'm pretty impressed with myself.

Lemon Lime & Bitters
Recipe for 1 drink (8oz)

Add the following ingredients, in order, to a glass:
  • Ice 
  • 6-8 drops of Angostura Aromatic Bitters
  • 15 mL Sweetened Lime Juice (not really the same thing as simply squeezing fresh lime juice into your drink, but that would work if it's all you have)
  • Sprite or 7-Up to the top of the glass (I've also made this with Ginger Ale. It's good, but not as good.)
