Little Bitte is a woman-owned craft cocktail company lead by Willa Van Nostrand (“Bitte”), an award-winning mixologist, artist and food writer. Little Bitte specializes in garden-to-glass cocktail pairings featuring small batch spirits, cordials, bitters, fresh pressed juices & edible blossoms. Our team of certified mixologists can accommodate any size party from a cocktail workshop for 15 guests, a virtual cocktail party for 100, a wedding for 300 guests or a large scale Arts & Music Festival with multiple bars. 

We work closely with our community of local farmers to select the freshest ingredients available to make the most delicious & aesthetically pleasing recipes imaginable. Every Bitte bar shines with edible blossom bouquets, fresh citrus & the glorious specialties of the season.

Looking to add a bit of visual theatre to your event? Guests will always remember a Little Bitte cocktail.

A cocktail should stimulate the mind as well as the appetite… It pleases the senses. The shared delight of those who partake in common of the refreshing nectar breaks the ice of formal reserve. Taut nerves relax; taut muscles relax; tired eyes brighten; tongues loosen; friendships deepen; the whole world becomes a better place in which to live. ​
