They date as far back as the early 1800's, originally used to assist with digestion and cure stomach aches. Infusing your cocktail recipes with just a few drops of bitters will give them an additional level of flavor depth. Many bitters are also renowned for their ability to cure hangovers.Once upon a time, in the 1800s orange bitters were a fixture in bars and indispensable to many cocktail recipes. After Prohibition, they fell into relative obscurity and became nearly impossible to find. That is, until the 21st century cocktail revival. Now, it seems like every bitters manufacturer worth its weight has a orange bitters offering resurrected from vintage formulas. But a handful stand out among the crowd.
