The holidays are coming up, which means there are plenty of occasions to try your hand at making some new cocktails. Whether it be a work event or a small gathering at home, you'll impress the holiday party circuit with your cocktail-making skills by adding one key ingredient: ANGOSTURA® bitters.

Here, mixologist Rob Hinderliter demonstrates how you can make your cocktails taste that much better by incorporating ANGOSTURA bitters across three holiday-themed drinks.

First, we see the Classic Old Fashioned, which starts with two dashes of ANGOSTURA® orange bitters on a sugar cube, followed by two dashes of ANGOSTURA® aromatic bitters.

Next up is the Dirty Toddy, which includes five dashes of the ANGOSTURA aromatic bitters and will certainly warm you up. Finally, the Citrus Fizz. It's arguably the most aesthetically pleasing of the cocktails, and you can create an ANGOSTURA aromatic bitters swirl in the foam.

Good luck choosing which to try first.
