I’ll admit to being a little overwhelmed. But, lucky for me, the offices of Martha Stewart are home to hundreds of multi-talented individuals, and I only had to walk down the hall to get an education in bitters. Our very own Eddie Simeon, a project manager on the digital ops team by day, moonlights as a bitters baron. Along with three longtime friends, Eddie runs Hella Bitter, a small-batch bitters company.

Note: As much as I love bitters and soda water as a stomach settler, and a great non-cocktail beverage option for pregnant women, I wanted to point out that most bitters are high in alcohol. That being said, so little of it is used in a glass of soda water I feel it likely doesn’t matter. But for those strictly abstaining, definitely mention it before offering it as a non-alcoholic alternative.
