Miracle Mile Bitters Co. Yuzu Bitters
Made by Miracle Mile Bitters Co. these Yuzu bitters combine prominent notes of citrus peel with a bit of faint lemon, grapefruit, and thyme. They’re lemony and herbaceous but not spicy — nicely sweet and not too bitter.
Yuzu will benefit any cocktail with citrus flavors. I like it in a French 75, Tom Collins, and Southside. A drop in your gin martini at home will make a world of difference. Don’t forget to garnish with a lemon peel!
Yuzu is a variety of citrus that originated in central China and Tibet. During the Tang Dynasty it was introduced to Japan and Korea. It’s flavor is tart and closely resembles that of grapefruit with overtones of mandarin orange. It’s pretty interesting for a citrus variety because it grows in colder regions. It can even handle a small frost!
These traditional Hawthorn strainers look gorgeous and are just as classy as everything else made by Yukiwa. The strainer is one piece Japanese 18/8 stainless steel except for the coil which comes off easily for cleaning. The two prongs fit nicely on both shaker tins and mixing glasses. The + shape hole pattern is simple and classy. Yukiwa is etched into the handle but I like that there isn’t a brand logo cut out of the metal.
I’ve personally had the silver and gold Yukiwa Hawthorne strainers for over two years now and they both still look like new after nightly use. That being said, I don’t run them through the dishwasher because they’re easy enough to clean by hand.
These look just as good in person as they do in the pictures! These Yukiwa Dance jiggers stand out as a true work of art and craftsmanship. They’re well balanced and flip easily, polish to a mirror finish, and feel as luxurious in hand as they look. They measure 1oz and 1.5oz but lack any interior markings which I think is due to their unique shape. Lets be honest though; you aren’t buying this jigger because you need your hand held on a 3/4oz pour! They’re impressive and beautiful. I get more comments about this jigger than just about any other piece of equipment or asset I have! 😏
Absolutely stunning design; I get tons of comments
These seamless glass bitters bottles look great behind the bar or on the shelf at home. They’re cut with a beautiful Yarai pattern, look stunning, and add a heavy dash of sophistication to your kit. If you’re a huge Harry Potter fan like I am they’ll make you feel like you’re mixing up a real magic potion. Who knows, maybe you are? 😉
Beyond being my favorite looking bitters bottle it’s also quite functional. Being 85ml it’s perfect for often used bitters like Angostura or Peychaud's. Because of the long tapered stem it’s comfortable to hold between your fingers in a variety of positions and flip for a dash.
The dasher top uses a cork seal and unlike some others that I’ve used the cork doesn’t come off after being refilled a certain number of times.

A few tips on a consistent dash:
Apply consistent force when dashing. Don’t be too gentle or forceful.
Don’t let the bottle get almost empty.
A common mistake is to flip the bottle over quickly as part of your first dash. Don’t do this! It traps an air bubble and makes your first dash really small. Instead, tilt it over a bit slower making sure there is no trapped air. Don’t worry, the bottle won’t leak but it will ensure your first dash is the same as your subsequent ones.
The Orange Bitters from Miracle Mile Bitters Co. are a spicier take on a classic recipe. They open with a bright clean orange peel and orange juice flavor and finish spicy with cardamon, clove, and cinnamon. They’re not too bitter and have a sugar back.
They’re a nice way to mix things up for drinks that usually call for orange bitters like a Martinez or a Bronx. Personally though, I like to use them in a tequila old fashioned or tiki drinks because of their spicy finish!
