Ingredient: phosphoric acidWhat it is: Additive
Food-grade phosphoric acid (additive E338) is used to acidify foods and beverages such as various colas. It provides a tangy or sour taste and, being a mass-produced chemical, is available cheaply and in large quantities. The low cost and bulk availability is unlike more expensive seasonings that give comparable flavors, such as citric acid which is obtainable from lemons and limes.
Ingredient: whiskeyWhat it is: Whiskey
Mixing-glass half-full fine ice, three dashes orange bitters, two dashes acid phosphate, one- half jigger whiskey, one-half jigger Italian vermouth. Mix well, strain into cocktail-glass.
