Martinez Cocktail- Recipe Below

Scrappy's Bitters first hit the bitters scene in 2008 when it wasn't the crowded market it's become today, and they have only grown more successful since that time. Part of their success can be attributed to their commitment to organic ingredients and no artificial flavors or colors. Scrappy's "craft" bitters are perfect representations of the ingredients they contain along with a balance of carefully selected herbs and spices. We mixed up a few of their recommendations, one classic cocktail and two original cocktails from influential West Coast bartenders.
