Rye-se Up

Rye Whiskey , Modern Classics

For the 2016 NFL season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.
AMER bartender David Petro’s Atlanta Falcons–inspired cocktail is made with rye whiskey and is served up, as he says, “to represent the Falcons high-flying offense.” The deep red color evokes the team's color. Petro uses lemon sherbet to deepen the flavors of the drink and egg white to give it a nice rich texture.

Lynx

Cognac , Modern Classics

If you’re looking to add a little chill to your pre-dinner coffee but don’t quite want to go the cold-brew route, the Lynx at Cambridge, Mass.’s Park is the cocktail for you. Instead of serving the drink over ice, the chilling agent is actually a giant, frozen cube of coffee. (This idea could get very dangerous, very fast.)

Shoulda Benne Pirate

Midnight Oil

Rum , Modern Classics

“The Midnight Oil brings to life in cocktail form one of my all-time favorite snack combos: a morning coffee and a slice or two of banana bread,” says bartender Brett Esler of Whisler’s in Austin. “With an aged rum base, a touch of the Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur for a little depth and some vanilla extract to round it out, you have yourself a slightly caffeinated, fall-driven sipper.”
