*Call me naive but I had never in my life heard of angostura. Click on the link to read all about Angostura bitters and what they were used for! It was difficult to discover much information about this strong 'elixir' but I did find this nugget of information from 'The Food Lover's Companion',
"Angostura bitters - Formulated by German Surgeon Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert, who served under Marshall von Blucher at the battle of Waterloo, angostura bitters are the most widely known bitters today. Dr. Siegert created the bitter elixir (based on angostura bark, gentian root, rum and other ingredients) as a tonic to stimulate the troops' lagging appetites and improve their health. Although bitters are still taken as a Digestif, angostura bitters are often used today as a flavoring in foods and drinks and are essential in many cocktails such as the Manhattan and Old Fashioned. At 90 proof, angostura bitters are the most potent among this genre."I found the photo below on www.pinterest.com of an Angostura bottle in case you ever ran across one. It has always had a distinctive over sized label. Personally, I prefer a 'regular' iced coffee with nothing special done to it.
