Love Triangle Cocktail Inspired by Der Rosenkavalier

Like Strauss’s beloved and oh-so-exquisite opera, Der Rosenkavalier, this cocktail is the gateway to a world of Vienna’s decadence, where a romantic comedy of intertwined lives unfolds. A noblewoman, her handsome younger lover, and a young lady of marriageable age make for a delightful and complicated story.

What is Fire Tincture and How to Use It

This tincture from Scrappy’s Bitters is a potent, non-bitters tincture bursting with habanero pepper heat. A single drop (yes, you read that right, a single drop!) is enough to add a slow-burning warmth and complex flavor profile to your favorite drinks. Think of it as a liquid spark for the adventurous cocktail enthusiast. Fire Tincture pairs well with smoky mezcals, citrusy gins, and even rich chocolatey cocktails, adding a surprising depth of flavor that will have your taste buds tingling. But, be warned, a little goes a long way with this fiery tincture, so start with a single drop and adjust to your own heat preference.
