As part of a review series, I was recently introduced to Angostura Aromatic Bitters. Sounds interesting, right?
About Angostura Aromatic Bitters: This product has been around since 1824, created by Johann Siegert, a German doctor who went to Venzuela to serve in Simon Bolivar’s army as Surgeon General. The product was named after the town that he lived in at the time. When there was unrest in Venezuela,however, the company moved to nearby Trinidad and this is where the company has remained ever since. Angostura aromatic bitters is produced only at the House of Angostura in Trinidad but known the world over.
Most commonly used for a cocktail flavor enhancer… there are many other wonderful uses for this product and it can add great flavor to Hamburgers, Desserts, Dressings and more. (you can see the recipes here) I decided to try out the Honey Vinaigrette Recipe to add some fun variety to our dinner salad, and let me tell you …this was such an easy dressing to throw together …but so delicious!
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup NAKANO Natural Rice Vinegar
3 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
2 tsp. ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters
1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
Whisk together ingredients. Toss with mixed salad greens. Especially tasty with arugula and other slightly bitter greens.
