bitters 101 at sugarpill apothecary october 15th


What is it that turns a good cocktail into one that is extraordinary?  One word, bitters.  These marvelous concoctions of herbs, citrus peels, fresh fruits, and spices have the ability to transform your favorite drink by highlighting certain flavors.

In this class, we'll discuss the history and uses of bitters, along with their health benefits (beyond the cocktail!).  Students will have the opportunity to sample a variety of bitters and aromatics and discover their subtle, yet powerful influence.  

Each field tripper will go home with newfound knowledge and choice of their own DIY bitters kit - just in time to make a batch for holiday gifting!
