Bitters is an alcoholic preparation flavored by an assortment of botanical elements including herbs, bark, roots, and/or fruit. Perhaps best thought of as seasoning for drinks, Bitters are often a critical component in many cocktails. While artisanal Bitters are all the rage today, basics like Angostura, Peychaud’s and Fee Brothers are enough to give you plenty of options.
