a little sweet butnotbad
I'm glad to have Dhōs Bittersweet in my liquor cabinet as an option for those times when I want something enjoyable to drink but don't need or want the alcohol content. I've come up with enjoyable cocktail alternatives using Dhōs Bittersweet, but the best is simply a 1:3 ratio of Bittersweet to Q Light Tonic – easy to make and very satisfying. I also made a Cool Mule: Dhōs Gin Free and Bittersweet with ginger beer.
Great stuff. I use 1 shot and top with seltzer, on ice. Anywhere from a splash to a tall glass. Also like it with zero proof gin for a phony negroni.
I’m still learning how much DHOS tastes best to me. It seems like just a touch with seltzer is how I like it. It does remind me of an aperitif. Still getting used to the somewhat bitter after taste.
