Bitters are a concentrated infusion of herbs, roots, and spices that were traditionally used as medicines. Today, they play an integral role in the world of cocktails.
For this month’s Threeway, The House of Angostura teamed up with the folks at Tucano’s to showcase a selection of cocktails highlighting the bar’s signature spirit – rum and their favourite go-to ingredient Angostura Bitters.
An avid agave spirits fan, Hayley Dixon suggests subbing in Angostura Reserva for tequila in a Paloma. “Simply drop the salt, and you have a tall and refreshing summer serve that is super simple to make,” she says.
Congratulations to Rohan Massie who took home second place at the Angostura Global Cocktail Challenge 2020. He was up against eight other competitors at the world-famous bartending competition held in Trinidad on 22 February.
“Bartenders are always on the lookout for new flavours and creative outlets,” Rohan Massie says. “Fermentation is one of the key ways I do this.” Get three ferment recipes here.
If you’ve ever wanted a DIY strawberry wine recipe to try, this one from the award-winning Rohan Massie might be exactly what you need.
Entries for the ANZ Angostura Global Cocktail Challenge will close on Sunday, 18 August – that’s just under three weeks away! So stop putting it off and get on with it.
There’s still time to nab a ticket to the Bar Awards and a coveted spot on the front cover of the October issue of Bartender Magazine. All you need to do is submit your reinvention of the iconic Lemon, Lime and Angostura bitters.
