Description

Used since the Middle Ages, bitters are made by combining botanicals and spices with alcohol and letting them sit until the bitter and medicinal qualities have been extracted. Ingesting just a small amount of the resulting liquid can stimulate and promote healthy digestion. As such, bitters often bookend a meal—taken as an aperitif in sparkling water or a cocktail, or as a slow-sipping digestif after a heavy dinner. Their popularity and use has withstood the test of time—and for good reason.

DIY Bitters is a how-to guide that explores the history and health benefits of bitters, and shows you how to make your own bitters at home, to be used alone or in cocktails, tonics and even main meals.
