More Tips for Making a Great Game Set Match
- Two styles of bitters are used in this cocktail. It is not a common occurrence though it does happen from time to time because each flavor brings in a new aspect that adds to the balance of the drink. The bitters recommended are really the best options within their flavor profiles and it would be best not to substitute either of them.
