Fresh Tomato Martini

Serious Eats Autumn Giles 2 comments

Not unlike a ripe, in-season tomato, the tomato vodka in this drink doesn't need a lot to dress it up. This is the cocktail equivalent of slicing up a beefsteak and showering it with crunchy salt. More

Upgraded Lemon Drop

Serious Eats Jeff Lucas 2 comments

The Lemon Drop was one of the most popular cocktails in the US in the later part of the 20th century. It should follow a simple formula of spirit, lemon, and sweetener, but sadly, in many bars the drink disintegrated into a candied mess. It's time to give the Lemon Drop the glory it deserves. More

Serious Eats Erin Zimmer Post a comment

This concept of adding clam juice to make a brinier Bloody Mary originated, and still remains popular, in Canada.
