Bitters are a popular ingredient, like the spice rack of the cocktail world, used to enhance the taste and flavour of a cocktail.

They are highly concentrated liquids that only require the addition of a drop or two to a cocktail to balance out flavours and add depth to a drink. Bitters come in small bottles and are alcoholic spirits that are infused with herbs, roots, fruit and leaves. They typically consist of water and alcohol, which has been steeped with a combination of botanicals.
