in the continuing saga of orange bitters make everything better

Why, of all flavors, was bitter singled out to be the one we associate with loss?

Because I'm sitting here with my Campari & soda and a plateful of pasta and broccoli rabe, and I just don't get it.

Also, revised recipe for the only character-themed drink I've ever done -- the Miles Edgeworth, because it is bitter and sparkling and exactly the right shade of red-pink-whatever:

Put a handful of ice cubes in a highball glass. Add 1-1.5 jiggers Campari, four dashes orange bitters, and fill with soda water. Stir gently.

Original recipe was 1 jigger Campari and a half-jigger Grand Marnier, no bitters. The new version is much drier, and has all of the orange kick without the muddying effect of the sugar.
