Valentine’s Day Cocktails


We’ve done extensive nocturnal research on our Love-Struck Bitters, and can absolutely conclude that yes, they work! Those naughty Romans who, long, long ago, discovered that a combination of hyssop, thyme, peppercorn and ginger were an effective aphrodisiac, no doubt, had conducted similar experiments.

Here are just a few of the things that have happened since The Hudson Standard Love-Struck Bitters were introduced this past year to a peckish and itchy market:

♥ Dramatic drop in couch sleeping

♥ Dramatic rise in room service

♥ Massive downloads of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof with a young Paul Newman

♥ Bitters-to-Bed replaces Farm-to-Table

♥ Dogs and cats don’t fight anymore

♥ Global warming (sorry.)
