English term or phrase: Angostura bitters
It's about Rum Cocktails:
this one Manhattan - with Angostura bitters, vermouth.....
Explanation:
Bitters, any of various, usually alcoholic, flavouring agents distilled or infused from bitter herbs or roots. Extracts of quinine, orange, and angostura are among the most popular bitters on the market, and they are used sparingly, chiefly in mixed drinks and sauces

Portuguese translation:angustura do Brasil; quina-do-mato
Explanation:
estes sinónimos são da Porto Editora.

Pelo que vejo é um aperitivo (bitters) de angustura, que se mistura com outras bebidas para fazer o cocktail.

Bitters também pode ser cerveja amarga,
mas aqui parece-me que será algo como um 'licor de angostura amarga', assim como nós temos em Portugala 'licor de amêndoa amarga'.

Aperitivos são bebidas que se tomam geralmente antes das refeições, e normalmente vermutes, licores, etc.

Espero que ajude!

Angostura - bitters


Explanation:
No Brasil costuma-se usar ambas as expressões no original. Em Portugal talvez não seja o caso, já que lá existe um respeito pelo idioma muito maior do que aqui.

Quanto a cocktails costumamos usar coquetel e para vermouth usa-se vermute.

Espero que ajude,

Angosrura bitters


Explanation:
A drink, typical imbibed on the verandah of a British-Empire-that-was ex-patriate club, in places such as India, Africa, Malaysia (Somerset Maugham novels would be the typical backdrop).

Origin of name:

Angostura= a town (now Cuidad Bolivar?) on the Orinoco River, in Venezuela

Angostura bitters =aromatic bitters (from bark of Rutaceae trees)formerly used in medicine (these ex-pats knew what they were drinking and why!)

Cocktails (Manhattan, Whiskey Sour, Gin Sling etc) are generally not translated (as in Manhattan in your sentence).

The Spanish refer to 'bitter' for 'una bebida de sabor amargo' without translating it, and you could probably use the original word in your Portuguese text (given it's culture-bound context), and give an explanation in ( ) or as a footnote
