The best way to think about bitters is to consider them the salt and pepper of the cocktail world, where they’re used for seasoning and providing depth. Essentially, bitters are created by infusing a mix of bitter bark, herbs and various other flavourings, in a base of alcohol (often rum). Too overbearing for neat consumption, these are used very sparingly, and just a few drops are a key part of such classics as the Manhattan and the Old-Fashioned cocktail.
