Bitters are essential to a good cocktail, but which ones should you buy?

If you buy just three bitters, make one an orange bitters like the two on the left – Angostura and Regans’ – plus two traditional “aromatic” bitters: Angostura and Peychaud’s, on the right.
Scrappy’s Lavender, Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit, San Francisco Bitters Collection Green Carthusian, Angostura Orange and Fee Brothers Celery Bitters. If you’re a gin drinker, try a few dashes of one of these in your gin and tonic.
From left: Peychaud’s, Dale DeGroff’s Pimento, Scrappy’s, Bittermens Transatlantic and Angostura are all labeled “aromatic” bitters, but the cocktails you make with them will taste different – sometimes dramatically so.
Switching out the bitters can transform your martini.
