HOW TO MAKE CHILI BITTERS
2 cups clear rum (we recommend 504Silver)
16 habanero peppers, quartered and dried (seeds in)

8 allspice berries, crushed
6 espresso beans
4 whole cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons molasses
1 cinnamon stick, crushed
Infuse all ingredients in rum for two weeks. Strain and bottle.
We love spicy drinks. On our back patio, we're always growing some variety of hot peppers. Currently, habaneros are beginning to ripen. (Many of our staff members have green thumbs and successfully grow cayennes, jalapeños, poblanos, and various other peppers and herbs successfully - remember that post we did earlier this spring about planting a cocktail garden?) Our menu has previously featured spicy daquiris and other spicy cocktails, but we wanted something simple to highlight the flavor of our rum with just a small kick - an Old Fashioned seemed like the right opportunity. We use smoked chilis in the bitters we make, which complements the oaky flavor of 504Gold so well. This twist on the old fashioned is our new favorite - if the thought of making bitters on your own terrifies you, stop in to try our version in the tasting room!
