Scottsdale’s newest craft cocktail bar, Bitters, opened this week so I had to go check it out. Bitters is located in Sky Song in the south part of Scottsdale. Erika Rode is the owner behind Bitters – I was impressed with her enthusiasm for the craft culture and it is evident by the bar’s offerings. Chef Ehren Litzenberger dazzles with creating masterpieces on a small plate.
Cocktails, Beer, and Wine
Small Plates, Popcorn, Desserts
The cocktail list is amazing. I ordered the Bitter Sweet. Perfection. Templeton Rye Whiskey, Sherry, vanilla, locally owned AZ Bitters Mos Mole, Orange. Definitely going back soon to try a few others on the menu.
