This bitter-aromatic formula is perfect to have on hand during that next big feast. In addition to dandelion’s bitterness, the aromatics from fennel, ginger and orange help curb post-dessert bloat and can help relieve excess acid in the stomach, too.

Dandelion Tummy Bitters Recipe

• 2 parts dandelion root
• 1 part fennel seed
• 1⁄2 part ginger root
• 1⁄2 part orange peel
• 100-proof vodka

1. If tincturing fresh herbs, first clean them, then finely chop or grind them. Fill 1⁄2 of a clean Mason jar with the mixture. If tincturing dried herbs, only fill 1⁄3 of the jar, as dried roots will expand.

2. Cover herbs with 100-proof vodka, filling to the very top of the jar. Be sure your herb mixture is completely covered.

3. Allow mixture to extract for 6 to 8 weeks, shaking often. Strain herbs with cheesecloth and squeeze any remaining liquid back into the extract. Bottle liquid in amber dropper bottles and label with the name, date and parts used.
