So, what’s so special about this book?
– Bitters is a 240 pages contemporary book which you really want to take along with you during the holidays. Since, the days when a lonely bottle of Angostura bitters held court behind the bar, are gone, I can assure you that you are going to need this book. Brand Thomas Parsons writes about the best and boldest new brands and flavors, the most innovative artisanal producers, and gives valuable information about the bitters-making process. The book traces some of the most important historical facts related to bitters and describes how a bartender could make his own amazingly tasty and complex liquids. I have really loved those recipes for apple, root beer and charred cedar bitters. There is also a great inventory of many sublime cocktails where bitters play a leading part. Once you ‘ll finish reading this perfectly written document, I can guarantee that you will be able to understand the importance of this magic cocktail ingredient.
