Would you cook without spices? I guess so. So why make cocktails without cocktail bitters? In my newest article I cover the diversity of cocktail bitters and how they interact with other cocktail ingredients to make everything better (true story!).
Even though there are literally hundreds of different bitters out there, they can be classified in a handful of different categories based on their aroma & flavor profile. These different aromas are also the reason why they have such a major impact on cocktails and interact in different ways with the other ingredients in your drink.
