Default Angostura Orange Bitters

The last few days I've been enjoying some Regatta Ginger Beer with some 3 year old rum and a couple of dashes of Angostura Orange Bitters and a squeeze of lime.

Then I added one two many dashes of bitters and discovered what I already knew, too much of a good thing is sometimes just too much. I'm trying to do better on the next one.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Yes, Ed! Of the 3 orange bitters which I regulaly use, the Angostura is the most agressive on the bitter scale. Fee's is next in strength, with Regan's #6 a distant (much milder) third. Each has its use, but always with restraint.

I am still jazzed about this very fine Angostura product. It certainly compares with their original beloved product.

I absolutely love the new(ish) Angostura Orange Bitters. I currently own the Angostura Orange, Gary Regan's Orange & Fee Bros Orange bitter. I don't use the Fee much these days, but the other two have distinctly different uses. I find that the Angostura are best used in Tiki cocktails (try a dash in your next Mai Tai or Rongo Bowl), while Regan's are best suited for classic cocktails, such as a Martini or a Manhattan. You are right that a little goes a long way; bitters are best used in a judicial manner.
