6 ds Orange bitters, Angostura orange
1 pn Salt
Instructions
Build in a highball glass, stir with large ice, then add more ice if needed and a pinch of coarse salt to a large ice cube or top of ice ball above the surface of the liquid
Notes
Salt is supposed to slowly make its way into drink as the ice melts. Bears a striking resemblance to the Search for Delicious.

Curated to combine with

Curated to combine with nearly identical Bitter Giuseppe, which omits the salt and has 6 dashes of Regans' Orange Bitters.
