5 Bitters That Transform Whiskey Cocktails

Aromatic bitters like Angostura typically pair best with an old fashioned. Their flavor, a concoction of herbs and spices, gives an old fashioned its signature taste.


Aromatic bitters are potent, so only a few drops are needed to make this cocktail shine. Simply swap out the licorice syrup or the fig bitters for Angostura for a delicious twist.

Orange bitters are not merely citrusy, as they also carry a wide variety of undertones that come from spices like cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger.


You can easily use this fruity mixer on any whiskey drink, but orange bitters shine best alongside the zesty flavors of a whiskey sour.

Few people are aware of the culinary delight that spiked milkshakes are, and the best way to accentuate one is by adding a splash of chocolate bitters.


Chocolate bitters add hints of cacao, caramel, pepper, and even wormwood. They are best alongside the bourbon milk punch, but they shine equally as well in sours and Manhattans.
