DIY Mole Bitters

The exotic combination of chile and chocolate in these mole bitters is a perfect addition to cocktails made with tequila, mezcal, or dark rum.

Notes: Cacao nibs are roasted bits of cacao beans. Many grocery and health-food stores carry them, or you can also order them online from Amazon. (You can use leftover nibs to make your own chocolate liqueur.) Wormwood leaf and angelica root can be hard to find. Some bulk natural foods shops carry them, but Lhasa Karnak sells it online and at their Berkeley stores. Ancho chile is a poblano chile that has been dried. You can purchase them from most grocery stores and Latin markets in the spice section.
