Raisin in the Sun Classic-style bitters have a long-history of association with the jazz community of New Orleans. This botanical blend is Shoots & Roots Bitters version of a classic bitters that pays homage to another jazz community, the birthplace of our company in Harlem, New York City. We drew inspiration in creating this aromatic tangy blend from the juxtaposition of cultures and markets in Harlem along with two remarkable leaders of the civil rights movement and Harlem Renaissance, Lorraine Hansberry and Langston Hughes. Hughes' poem Harlem questions, "What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?"
