editor recipe notes

Tonka Sour, I would say if one of those drinks, I would order in a Bar. I prefer to drink canned beer, but if you ask me, that’s a must-go drink =) The real improvement is adding the Mrs. Better Bitters. It’s a great taste without the bitters, but with this bitter, it’s exceptional. The additional strawberry dust mixed with citrus acid to give a slight fruity summer kick.
