*The quintessential taste of New Orleans, El Guapo Chicory Pecan Bitters are one of their most sought after products. Made with freshly roasted Congregation Coffee located a stone's throw from their New Orleans office, these aromatic bitters pack a punch with flavors of coffee, chicory, pecans and cinnamon.
*A Creole take on classic Orgeat - a syrup traditionally made with almonds and cane sugar. We make this version with Louisiana cane sugar and pecans grown on my uncle Kevin’s farm in Southwest Georgia. We toast them in cast iron skillets to create a syrup is fresh and effervescent with notes of orange and rose - perfect for any Mai Tai or old fashioned recipe
