Test Kitchen Notes
We love to serve this recipe with Basil Hayden Toast ™—this tasty pairing's featured in our video series One Host, Two Ways, brought to you by our friends at Basil Hayden®.
WHO: Meagan works as a bartender in New Orleans and is a fierce defender of the Sazerac. WHAT: A snack that's as equally suited to movie nights as it is for after-work cocktails. HOW: Bake popcorn in a coating of butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and angostura bitters. Serve to serious snackers. WHY WE LOVE IT: The addition of angostura bitters kicks the recognizably addictive combination of butter, sugar, and salt to another level—we dare you to keep you hand out of the popcorn bowl.
Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and angostura bitters, whisking occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and a glaze has formed, approximately 3 to 5 minutes.
Put the popcorn in a large mixing bowl, pour the glaze over top, and use a rubber spatula to make sure the popcorn is evenly coated.
Spread the popcorn onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove the pan from the oven, and place it on a wire rack to cool. The glaze will harden as it cools. Serve warm or at room temperature.
