And here is my creation, the Batavian Affair
1 tsp Unrefined Brown Sugar, 3 dashes Bitter Truth Old Times Aromatic Bitters, 1 splash of Water, 1 oz. Batavia Arrack, 1 oz. Dutch Genever, 1 Lemon Peel, 1 Orange Peel
In the bottom of an old-fashioned glass carefully mix the brown sugar, bitters and a splash of water.
The coarse and rustic aroma of the Batavia Arrack and the smooth taste of the old Genever combines so well with the very aromatic unrefined brown sugar, the Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters reminiscent of cinnamon, cardamom, anise and cloves, and the citrusy freshness of the orange and lemon peels.
