About Bittermilk No. 4 New Orleans Style Old Fashioned Rogue
Bittermilk is a husband and wife team from Charleston, South Carolina. Founded by MariElena and Joe Raya, the operation was launched in 2013 with the goal of simplifying the process for the home cocktail-maker. Their range includes 7 cocktail mixers: Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned, Smoked Honey Whiskey Sour, New Orleans Style Old Fashioned Rogue, Charred Grapefruit Tonic, Oaxacan Old Fashioned, and Gingerbread Old Fashioned.
Hand-crafted and made in small batches, all of the mixers are non-alcoholic and use unique, all-natural, and mostly organic ingredients. Each comes with a suggested recipe that is as simple as adding the specified spirit type in the correct ratio. All of the mixers contain a bitter, sweet, and acidic component that contributes to the balance of the finished cocktail. Bitters take the center stage, as the name Bittermilk implies. Several botanicals and aromatics are added, while creative techniques such as smoking, barrel-aging, and macerating add to the complexity.
The No. 4 is the New Orleans Style Old Fashioned Rouge, a bittersweet mixer with plenty of licorice and spice. Wormwood, fennel, and gentian root bring it close to absinthe, while the red beet from Peru takes care of its beautiful natural red color. Other ingredients include Florida golden cane sugar, water, fresh lemon peel, spices, and tartaric acid. The mixer is aged in Willett Family Reserve Rye Whiskey casks and pairs perfectly with rye whiskey.

The history of cocktails dates back to the not-so-good days of prohibition when people started to mix drinks trying to make the homemade or bootlegged liquor drinkable.
But things have changed since then, and cocktails have become increasingly popular with modern pop culture, from classics like Martini, Old Fashioned, or Negroni, to the more festive versions like Margaritas and Mojitos becoming staples in most bars.
