Welcome to Badass Bitters DIY Cocktail Bitters Kits! 

What are bitters?

Bitters fill a unique niche in medicine, food, and drink history. The story begins with the alchemical arts in ancient Egypt and ends in America in a cocktail glass. The ancients made the first bitters by extracting the healing (and flavor) qualities of flowers, peels, seeds, barks, and herbs through an infusion process using wine and, later, distilled alcohol.

Why are bitters used in cocktails?

In 1806, the cocktail appeared: “…COCKTAIL, then, is a stimulating liquor, comprised of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters.” This first publishing of the word “cocktail” and its definition appeared in The Balance, Columbian Repository in Hudson, New York. By the early twentieth century, cocktail culture flourished, and bitters became the secret sauce in the classics. Today, you become the alchemist-mixologist with our Badass Bitters DIY educational kit, infusing and making bitters. Badass.


In 1816, Capt. Henry Hall was the first to cultivate cranberries on Cape Cod. Little did he know that in 125 years, cranberry with vodka and lime would become the coastal fav, Cape Codder. Our kit blends cranberry with botanicals complimenting all spirits, from rums and whiskies to gin and vodka. Add a few drops to your Martini or Manhattan. Cheers!
