Orange Bitters

Orange peel, 1 ounce; citron peel, 1 ounce; gentian root, one half ounce.

Macerate the sliced and bruised ingredients for a week in one pint of diluted alcohol; filter or transfer to a percolator and add sufficient diluted alcohol to obtain one pint of liquid.

Angostura Bitters

Angostura bark (or some of the angostura extract), 4 ounces; cardamom seeds, 2 drachms; cinnamon, 2 ounces; orange peel, 1 ounce; raisins, 8 to 16 ounces; alcohol diluted, 5 to 10 pints.

Bruise these ingredients, macerate in the diluted alcohol for a week, then press and filter.
