A Dash of Bitters, to Make it Better - Try these Incredible Brands in Your Next Cocktails

The use of bitters has exploded and no longer are your only choices the standard Angostura.   These flavored extracts, made from infusing herbs, seeds, bark, roots, flowers and berries with alcohol, were originally created in the 1800's for medicinal purposes but now, they are sought after by cocktail mixologists.  Remember, the liquid is highly concentrated, which is why you need only a few dashes in those mixed drinks.

When you use them, buy the best.  The nuances of a high end bitter can make a ho-hum cocktail, the best drink you ever had.
