  • Dry Vermouth, Gin, Orange, Orange
  • Sugar, Lime, Cachaça
    The Caipirinha is generally known as the national cocktail of Brazil, and is certainly the most famous drink made with cachaça, a Brazilian sugar cane-based spirit that resembles rhum agricole. It's a fairly simple cocktail, sort of a South American analog of the Mint Julep. All that's involved is muddled lime, sugar, and cachaça, so it's a pretty powerful ,…
  • White rum, Lime, Simple syrup
    The classic Daiquiri is a wonderfully simple cocktail consisting of white rum, lime juice, and sugar. That's it. You should always use fresh-squeezed lime juice, as the bottled stuff comes from concentrate and doesn't taste nearly as good (and, in some cases, can even impart some nasty metallic flavors). To avoid getting clumps of granulated sugar in your Da…
  • Bourbon, Lemon juice, Sugar, Club soda, Maraschino cherry, Orange
    The John Collins is a classic 'Collins' style cocktail with the use of whiskey, rather than gin like the Tom Collins. The drink has a sweet and refreshing flavor.
  • Gin, Campari, Sweet Vermouth
    The Negroni is a classic cocktail featuring Campari front-and-center, along with equal parts gin and sweet vermouth, resulting in a spirit-forward drink with a strongly bitter profile. It's typically either built in an Old-Fashioned glass on the rocks, or stirred and served up in a cocktail or coupe glass. A London dry gin typically balances the other flavor…
  • Pisco, Lime juice, Sugar, Egg White, Angostura Bitters
    The Pisco Sour is a classic South American cocktail made with pisco, a brandy (or aguardiente) distilled from Peruvian or Chilean wine. It was invented sometime between 1915 and 1922 by Victor Morris, an American expat bartender in Lima, Peru, and gradually became an international hit. It's a variation on the Whiskey Sour (and other sour cocktails), though i…
  • Cognac, Cointreau, Lemon juice
    The Sidecar is a Prohibition-era classic with a nice balance of citrus and sweet, making it a perennial favorite. The exact origin of the Sidecar is unclear, and as a cocktail it definitely demands some experimentation with the proportions. Most ratios are equally valid (don't tell anyone we said that...), but this recipe is the one we've found most reliably…
  • Gin, Lemon juice, Simple syrup, Club soda, Maraschino cherry
    The Tom Collins is a classic summer highball that's perfect for the golf course or a backyard barbecue, made from gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and club soda. The Tom Collins is served in, you guessed it, a Collins glass, which is narrower than a typical highball. A nice side effect of this glassware is that when you tilt the drink all the way back to get …
  • Bourbon or rye whiskey, Angostura bitters, sugar cube, orange peel
    The Old-Fashioned cocktail dates back to the turn of the nineteenth century—the very dawn of the word “cocktail” itself—and is often regarded as the most essential of the classic cocktails, if not the best-known whiskey drink of all time.The Old-Fashioned cocktail is a simple drink, consisting of bourbon or rye whiskey, sugar or simple syrup, Angostura bitte…
