Adding some big flavors with my top tip, Angostura aromatic bitters! They make more than just your drinks taste good. They’re my secret ingredient for adding flavor to all my favorite tailgating treats like BBQ rib marinades, dips, and burgers. Angostura bitters are the essential ingredient in many world-famous drinks, but they can also enhance the flavor of all your favorite tailgating dishes. Try adding a dash or two to your burgers on the grill, or a spoonful to your mac and cheese or ketchup at your next pre-game event. Angostura Cocoa bitters in your marinade can also boost the flavor of your BBQ ribs. Guests will thank you for it! For more information, visit angosturabitters.com
