This old fashioned bitters recipe set will have you ready to make all of the classic cocktails, exactly as they were prepared many years ago.


    Get the most notable cocktail recipes from 1947 and all of the Angostura bitters you need to make them in this fantastic gift-worthy set. The drinks are timeless, the classic bitters are full of flavor, and the Professional Mixing Guide is a piece of cocktail history.

    The cocktail recipe book is a reprint of an original 1947 edition, a book that was instantly recognized as one of the most influential bartending books of the time. This post-Prohibition era classic gives you a glimpse into the past, as the cocktail world was being molded into what it has become today.

    Cocktail bitters are spirits infused with flavors, typically from plants, fruits, or spices. They date as far back as the early 1800's, originally used to assist with digestion and cure stomach aches. Infusing your cocktail recipes with just a few drops of bitters will give them an additional level of flavor depth. Many bitters are also renowned for their ability to cure hangovers.

    The secret formula of Angostura Aromatic bitters was developed in 1824 by Dr. J.G.B. Siegert, the surgeon general in Simon Bolivar’s army in Angostura, Venezuela. He used his aromatic bitters as a medical elixir to improve appetite and digestive well-being of his soldiers. In time, the bitters were adopted by the 19th century American bartending community to add complexity to cocktails. Angostura is still produced today using the same bitters recipe, and is THE must-have cocktail ingredient at any bar.

    Angostura Orange Bitters boasts a floral, citrus-forward aroma and tastes clearly of sweet blood oranges with spicy notes of cardamom and coriander that give way to a dry, bitter orange finish. Orange bitters are also a staple of any bar, and Angostura is one of the most storied recipes on the market today.

    With this cocktail recipe set, you'll be prepared to mix up all the classic cocktails of yesteryear, authentically as they were intended to be made.
