So, this is pretty cool! Prior to meeting Bill and Lill from AZ Bitters Lab, I made a seriously, subtle suggestion via email that maybe they try their hand applying their Bitters for our Soup of the Week. Challenge accepted! They’d never used their products for a savory, much less a soup, and spent several days coming up with this concoction! HOW COOL IS THAT? Oh, and it’s awesome!!
