  • vodka, ginger beer, lime juice
    The Moscow Mule is a classic, refreshing vodka cocktail, great for hot summer days or a night out on the town. It isn't the most complicated recipe, but the Moscow Mule is certainly delicious if you're looking for something frosty, gingery, and crisp. We recommend using fresh lime juice, as the bottled stuff from concentrate has a lot less in the way of arom…
  • 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…
  • Blended whiskey, Lemon juice, Absinthe, Powdered sugar, Egg white
    "When we stumbled across a cocktail in the Savoy Cocktail Book with the claim that "it will either cure a rattlesnake bite, or kill rattlesnakes, or make you see them," we knew we had to try it. Dating back to the original 1930 publication of the bartending manual from London's Savoy Hotel, this tangy whiskey drink is just the right amount of sweet, sour, an…
  • Scotch, Drambuie, Lemon twist
    The Rusty Nail is a simple, classic scotch cocktail that's been around in one form or another since at least 1937. It's made with scotch whisky and Drambuie, the renowned scotch-based honey liqueur. Humphrey Bogart and the Rat Pack made it hugely popular in the 1960s, and it's stuck around as a mainstay that you can get just about anywhere, from high-en…
  • Cognac, absinthe, Peychaud's bitters, simple syrup, lemon twist
    The Sazerac cocktail is a classic New Orleans original that, over the years, has been made a number of pretty drastically different ways. The more modern Rye Sazerac (circa 1878) is a combination of rye whiskey, absinthe, Peychaud's bitters, and sugar, but the classic recipe used Cognac as its base spirit. This recipe uses the original Sazerac formula to mak…
  • Vodka, Dry Vermouth, Olive
    The Vodka Martini is, as the name would imply, simply a variation of the classic Dry Martini that uses vodka instead of gin. It makes for a very different drink, in which the aromas from the vermouth are more pronounced relative to those of the spirit. And, as a bonus, it lets you order a sexy-looking Martini even if you can't stand the thought of drinking g…
  • Whiskey, Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup, Egg White
    The Whiskey Sour is a classic drink, certainly, but it's never been accused of being a pretentious one. Nor, thanks to its unassuming simplicity, has it ever held a seat at the table with some of its classic brethren, like the Martini or Manhattan. As cocktail historian David Wondrich once put it, the Whiskey Sour "is the fried-egg sandwich of American mixol…
  • Rye, Sweet Vermouth, Angostura Bitters
    The Manhattan cocktail is simple, elegant, and overflowing with class—the perfect drink to round out a long day at the office or enjoy under candlelight with a loved one. You should always use rye whiskey (some Canadian whiskies with a high percentage of rye will do in a pinch), and we recommend a quality sweet vermouth like Noilly Prat Rouge, Carpano Antica…
  • 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…
  • Canadian whisky, dry vermouth, orange bitters, grenadine syrup, lemon juice
  • Blended Scotch, sweet vermouth, cherry heering, orange juice
    Blood and Sand is one of the few classic mixed drinks that includes Scotch. It was named for Rudolph Valentino's 1922 bullfighter movie Blood and Sand. The red juice of the blood orange in the drink helped link it with the film. --Wikipedia At first glance, this most unusual Scotch cocktail seemed a god-awful mix. But the recipe, one of the very few classic…
  • Bourbon,
    The Man o' War cocktail is named for one of the most legendary racehorses of all time, who won numerous high-profile races in the years following WWI. The standard recipe calls for a full ounce of orange curaçao or triple sec (Grand Marnier is a good choice), but we felt that was a bit too sweet considering the rest of the ingredients and halved it.Like any …
