This tart, refreshing drink is based on aged rum with a splash of maraschino liqueur. Muddled basil leaves add herbal complexity.
With Lillet Blanc and Aperol instead of vermouth and Campari, this summery variation on the Negroni will quench your thirst for herbal, citrusy bittersweetness.
Fresh lemon and gin with a little mint—this concoction is perfect for hot weather.
A scotch-based cocktail for cool summer evenings (and on into fall.) It's potent and a little smoky but super-smooth. Be sure to use a fresh bottle of Carpano Antica vermouth.
A sophisticated version of the old blender drink; made frothy with egg white and rich with coconut cream.
Rye Sherry Amour
Sherry-based cocktails are popping up all over town; this one's especially likable, bringing together the sweet heat of ginger with rye and lime juice.
Tropical but not too sweet, this pisco-based cocktail features lime, pineapple, and orange, spiced up with Velvet Falernum.
The vivid color in the bottom of the glass comes from Aperol and Skyy Infusions Blood Orange vodka. Stir it up for a bittersweet Italian-soda like drink that packs a bit of a punch.
