Ray Le­toya won the An­gos­tura global cock­tail chal­lenge in 2018 by bran­dish­ing a chop­stick as a stir­rer. He en­cour­ages bar­tenders to ex­plore bit­ters beyond think­ing of it as bit­ter. You can use up to a shot (15ml) of An­gos­tura in a tall cock­tail, and it'll work well with brown spir­its like rum, rye whisky or bour­bon. Old Flame
