What are herbal bitters?
A bitter is a herbal drink containing aromatic herbal essences, with a bitter or bittersweet flavour, often flavoured with citrus, with no added sugar. Numerous varieties of bitters are on the market, as they have been popular across Europe since the 18th century.

Bitters are often added to alcohol but a teaspoon can be added to any liquid, including water, tomato juice, fruit juice, teas & non-alcoholic beverages.
