Because most cocktails use lemon or lime juice to balance sweetness, there is a tendency for many drinks to taste similar because of the fruity nature of the citrus juice. Acid Phosphate is a perfect way to change the character of a drink.
Acid Phosphate has a pH between 2.0 and 2.2, or about the same as fresh squeezed lime juice.
Size: 250mL (8 oz) bottle, which is enough to make 50 to 100 drinks.
