I started Better Cocktail Bitters because I wanted to share the flavors and recipes that attributed to my success. I'm always searching for new flavors and unique concoctions that will delight tastebuds and excite patrons. Maybe it's a mezcal neat with a few dashes of Szechuan Chili Bitters or a Gin Swizzle with a Hibiscus Verbena Bitters float. Whatever you fancy consider better bitters for your next cocktail creation, you'll be glad you did.
I was born and raised in a hospitality family in Delaware. I grew up working in bars, restaurants, hotels, bakeries, butcheries and cafes all over the Delmarva peninsula. Growing with each new challenge. After moving to Los Angeles I found myself working in fantastic bars like SoHo House, Laurel Tavern, Forman's Tavern and with The Whaling Club. Learning and growing with each new adventure. I now want to share some of my favorite cocktail flavorings with you so you may share them with your friends and family. Cheers!
