Homemade Bitters

Bitters are a classic cocktail ingredient with a somewhat elusive production process requiring careful measures and lots of patience. From dried botanicals and fresh ingredients in a base of high ABV alcohol, bitters introduce a concentration of flavor and aroma to beverages with the smallest of amounts.  This course will teach you how to make your own quality and original bitters to enhance any number of cocktails.

Bitters make a special edition to a cocktail menu and this course will enhance your creativity and focus to deliver an exceptional product. Students will be able to match bitter tastings to a cocktail program, a great first step in making any bar self sufficient with the added benefit of lowering costs. This is also a great team-building exercise. You will be taking home 4 small bottles of different bitters made with your own hands.
