Valley of the Dark Lords

Mezcal , Modern Classics

One part inspiration from a Blood & Sand, one part terrarium, this cocktail from GM Sol Trece is a terrestrial textural treat from La Cuevita in the Highland Park neighborhood of L.A. “We wanted a cocktail that if you were looking through a telescope from another planet you would see sand and living creatures,” says Trece. “We added turmeric for sand color and texture and chia seeds for the ‘creatures’ effect.’”

Cold Fashioned

Vodka , Modern Classics

Vodka, sherry and Cynar liqueur are more interesting mixers than milk and sugar. Try them with your next cold-brew coffee in this spin on the Old Fashioned.

London Spritz

Gin , Modern Classics

Eye Opener

Irish Whiskey , Modern Classics

For this cocktail, Jameson brand ambassador Killian Lee uses Jameson Caskmates, which is regular Jameson that has been finished in beer casks. The "eye-opening" part of this cocktail comes from the addition of cold-brew coffee. This is tempered by ginger–brown-sugar syrup and finished off with a bit of stout.
