Raise a Glass with Angostura Aromatic Bitters this World Cocktail Day

The word cocktail was first coined on 13 May 1806 – which is why we celebrate world cocktail day on that specific day – when a New York tabloid defined the word cocktail as “a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters”.

ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters continues to be the essential ingredient in some of the world’s most famous and best-loved cocktails.

What better way to celebrate World Cocktail Day than by turning your hand to mixing these simple and impressive libations at home?



  • 30ml ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters
  • 30ml Lemon juice
  • 30ml Demerara simple syrup
  • 1 Egg white


Add all the ingredients to a shaker and dry shake (to dry shake is to shake without ice). Then add ice and shake again. Use a double strainer to pour mixture into a chilled coupe glass.
