What the Heck Even Are Bitters And What Can You Do With Them?

Bitters: You know your favorite cocktails include them, and the bottles make for fancy bar cart decor, but do you know how to use them yourself? The liqueur is a flavor extract, adding a boozy little something by infusing natural elements like bark, flowers and berries with alcohol -- akin to salting your food. If you're a budding mixologist, or even if you just want to know what's going on in that Negroni you're sipping, try to get through this test without being...bitter.
