Bitters are basically the spices of the cocktail world, and just a few dashes or drops can round out a drink or give it a bit of depth. Dashing them right into the glass is fine (obviously), but by freezing some of the gentian-infused liquid into a big ol' cube, you get a drink that gets a little more special as you drink it.
