THE bitter queen supreme, Marilyn de Los Muertos. #bitterqueens #marilynmonroe #diadelosmuertos #sundayfunday
The Declaration of Independence; the Constitution; the Bill of Rights. Some of our most profound and sacred documents, the dna that makes America, were written in the wee hours of the night by gentlemen drunk on Spruce Beer, Devil’s Bang, and cock ale, so don’t ever let anyone tell you that you’re better sober than drunk! Who says educating oneself can’t also be boozy fun?! #makeamericadrunkagain #bitterqueens #readingcanbefun k
One of our dear friends, Alicia Walton (co-owner of the Sea Star in San Francisco), was just named as one of SF Chronicles Bar Stars of 2017, and we couldn’t be happier for such well deserved accolades!

.5 oz Tempus Fugit Spirits Creme de Cacao
.5 oz Bigallet Thyme Liqueur
.5 oz lemon juice
.25 oz rich simple syrup
2 dashes Bitter Queens Chocolate Walnut Bitters

In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients. Shake. Strain into rocks glass over large ice cube. Garnish with thyme. Drink, smile, repeat.
Always excited when our dear friend @vladislovingit plays around with our ladies to whip up delicious libations. Looks like they found a sexy new friend in el silencio mezcal! #bitterqueens #mezcal #elsilencio #boozefamily #alcoholidays
