Bitters are a common addition to cocktails, often just used a dash or splash at a time. They pack a lot of flavor in just a few drops because of their concentrated nature. They’re made by infusing a neutral alcohol with aromatics, including roots, seeds, fruits, herbs, and spices. Gentian-based bitters are made from the gentian plant, which has a very bitter taste. If you can’t find a brand of gentian-based bitters, another variety will do.
