Nuts & Berries

We've talked about Cathead Vodka's Pecan Vodka before - it is one of our favorite southern flavors artfully crafted into a damn tasty vodka. When working on the Blackberry Cobbler cocktail, it was the addition of the black walnut bitters that made us ponder swapping out the whiskey with Pecan Vodka. 

Boy, were were thrilled with the result. The black walnut bitters did some serious magic with the pecan flavors in the vodka, and this thing tasted like something grandma would have baked on a Sunday afternoon.
