Welcome, grab a bar stool, and let’s talk alcohol, ice, and everything nice.
I’m Michael, and I love cocktails. I worked as a bartender in a local bar a few years ago. And honestly, I didn’t like my job initially because I had no experience, but that was all I could handle while also studying informatics.
I was working for a paycheck, not passion. That was until I learned how magical and complex the world of cocktails is. It’s even more complicated than programming.
I came to love my job after a while and continued working at the same local bar until 2018, when I opened my own miniature bar.
Cocktails became my life. And honestly, I found pleasure in my work.
Don’t get it twisted. It’s not just about getting drunk. It’s about the unique experience with each cocktail you try; however, not everyone makes cocktails correctly because they don’t care about your experience and enjoyment.
That’s why I decided to create a dedicated drinking website where I can share safe, tested, delicious recipes for newbies, home bartenders, and professionals.
So, if you’re a bartender, bar operator, or just someone interested in experimenting with cocktails at home – you’re at the right place.
A Dash of Bitters: Main Purpose
When people order cocktails, they usually order something they haven’t tried before. And they typically expect a mix of sweet and tropical flavors, which they get, so they believe it’s good.
However, most “cocktail lovers” don’t know that a cocktail isn’t just about combining sweet ingredients with some booze and chugging it until you get drunk.
It’s about exploring each ingredient. If you can’t taste each element individually in a cocktail, it’s not a good cocktail.
The perfect cocktail should be well-balanced and flavorful.
And the reason not everyone makes good cocktails is that they don’t care about the balance. It’s all about the balance of ingredients for cocktails.
Moreover, you don’t always have to order cocktails that sound or look tropical. You can try a wide range of cocktails that aren’t tropical but just as delicious.
My goal with this website is to introduce you to cocktails and teach you how to make different cocktails at home.
In a nutshell, I dedicated this website to safer and better cocktails.
A Dash of Bitters is a go-to spot for cocktail enthusiasts worldwide, where you can find solid recipes for every cocktail that comes to mind, share your experiences and recipes, and connect with like-minded individuals.
Important note: My website is informational only to help people make safer drinks. I recommend common sense, responsible alcohol consumption, and thorough fact-checking.
