Bitter drink recipe is a paper note in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Lonesome Road.
It can be obtained by talking to Ulysses at the end of Lonesome Road if he lives. Alternatively, it can be found in the footlocker left by him if he dies.
This hand written note contains the recipe for bitter drink. (The recipe is now unlocked for the campfire crafting station.)
