We have already established that cocktail bitters go beyond the cocktail. They bring depth to lemonade, flavour to royal icing, and sophistication to potato salad. It should come as no surprise then that they’re also very good in iced coffee.
Royal icing is very pretty, but it doesn’t taste like much. The hard, super-sweet cookie topping is more decor than anything, but if you want to add a little bit of flavour, reach for a bottle of cocktail bitters.
Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. I’ve been enjoying the charms of a little South American brandy known as “pisco” recently, so I thought we’d try a summery, but still strong, pisco cocktail.
