In his Spirits column this week, Jason Wilson praises the special something that bitters can add to a cocktail. But not all his acquaintances — let alone bartenders — are familiar with the diminutively-packaged ingredient.
We’ll do our part here to help, though. If you’d like to raise your cocktail game, here are some ideas for bitters, from our Recipe Finder:
• Darkside, inspired by bartender Adam Bernbach.
• Golden Rye Flip, which you ought to consider for your holiday parties this year.
• Monte Carlo, a variation on the Manhattan.
• Orange Bitters, if you want to make your own.
