Spirit Reviews Andrew Strenio 3 comments

Jaclyn Einis 1 comment

"This one's a good introductory bitter cocktail and a good introductory boozy cocktail," says Philip Ward, co-owner and bartender of East Village tequila and mezcal palace Mayahuel. "It's bitter and boozy, yet gentle in both ways." The Rosa Amargo, a creation of Mayahuel bartender Jeremy Oertel, is a smoky, grapefruit-tinged Negroni variation, served up. More

5 Essential Campari Cocktails

Cocktail 101 Michael Dietsch 17 comments

If you've never had Campari, the bright red liquid masks a surprise. This bittersweet stuff is definitely an acquired taste. I suspect nearly everyone grimaces the first time they try it, but that's no reason to give up. Campari cocktails are richly rewarding once you come around. Because they're long on flavor, you can generally savor them, letting them linger in your glass and on your mind. Here are five essential ways to enjoy this red elixir. More

DIY vs. Buy: Cocktail Ingredients You Should Not Make Yourself

DIY vs. Buy Marcia Simmons 9 comments

If I had a nickel for every mason jar full of herbs, spices, and liquor steeping in my kitchen, I'd have 55 cents. (That's not a lot of money, but it is a lot of weird jars.) So it might seem like I am biased against store-bought cocktail ingredients. But there are a few items that I will just never try to make myself. And I don't think you should either. More

How to Make Carbonated Negroni Cocktails

Maggie Hoffman 12 comments

Like with any new toy, I got bored with the Soda Stream. You can add the brand's flavored powders to your fizzy water after carbonating (I don't, though, not really being a pseudo-cola or faux-Sprite person), or mix it with juice, but you aren't supposed to introduce non-water liquids to the machine before fizzing it up—particles in the liquids supposedly cause it to explode everywhere, and at the very least, the sugar gums up the system. Enter the Twist N Sparkle Beverage Carbonating System from iSi, and you can be carbonating cocktails in no time. More

Guest Bartender: Make a Jungle Bird with Theo Lieberman of Lantern's Keep

Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

You don't hear often of brilliant cocktails created in the late 1970s, but The Jungle Bird was one. Beachbum Berry's Intoxica traces it to the Aviary Bar in the Kuala Lumpur Hilton, circa 1978, and it's one of only a handful of tiki cocktails that calls for Campari as an ingredient. Here's how to make one at home. More

Portland Cocktails: How to Make The Woodsman Tavern's Hunting Vest

Where to Drink: Portland Jordan Michelman 2 comments

Your standard Old Pal cocktail calls for rye-or-bourbon, dry vermouth, and Campari, stirred and strained into a chilled glass and served with a twist. At The Woodsman Tavern, Evan Zimmerman arranges his take on the Old Pal with Old Overholt rye, French dry vermouth, the tiniest addition of Fino sherry, and Campari left to mingle for a fortnight in a mason jar full of blowtorched wood.

Brunch Drinks: Campari Sanguinea

Heather Arndt Anderson Post a comment

When warm days are chased by chilly evening breezes, I crave autumnal things like nubby sweaters, terra cotta earth tones, and crisp glasses of pomegranate juice with a splash of delightfully bitter Campari. To lighten things up for brunch, a little grapefruit juice does the trick; to make it part of any proper Italian morning, add caffé e latte (coffee with milk), colazione (bread with butter and jam), and stivali favolosi (fabulous boots).
