In a Dash

Locally made in small batches by libationist extraordinaire Lara Nixon and Bar Congress manager Jason Stevens, Bad Dog Bar Craft bitters come in three flavors: Fire & Damnation, Sarsaparilla Dry Bitters, and Bloody Mary Bitters. A dash will add fantastic depth to almost any cocktail. Plus, you can find recipe suggestions from the pros online. Print a couple and include them with your gift. Hopefully you'll be invited for cocktails later. – Claudia Alarcón
