Green Tea Highball

Whiskey , Modern Classics

Two of Japan’s most famous beverages get cozy in this uplifting cocktail.

DIY Pink Gin

Gin , Classics

Adapted from the 1939 classic cocktail book The Gentleman’s Companion by Charles H. Baker, the original cocktail nods to the drink’s Navy roots, suggesting that the excess bitters “go back in the bottle, on the floor or out the porthole or window, depending upon who, where and what we are.”

Scottish Beats

Scotch , Modern Classics

Nodding to the classic Blood & Sand, this drink by Jason Percival, the bar manager at Boston’s Post 390, relies on beets for its dramatic rosy hue and a hint of sweetness.

Remember the Maine

Rye Whiskey , Classics

If you appreciate a good Manhattan—a rye Manhattan specifically—then the Remember the Maine will most likely find a home in your drinks repertoire. The cocktail comes from Charles H. Baker, Jr’s. The Gentleman’s Companion from 1939 and is notable for its additions of cherry liqueur and a touch of absinthe.

Rusty Nail

Classics

Cocktails don’t come much easier than this one, which has been around since the late 1930s. A lot of recipes suggest equal parts, but you’re better off starting with two ounces of scotch and a half ounce of Drambuie, tinkering until you find your personal ratio. No matter how you drink it, you’ll be channeling the Rat Pack in no time.

Maribell’s Late Again

Gin , Modern Classics

This savory cocktail by bartender Reid Lewis at Dallas’ Bowen House features rosemary-infused olive oil.

Dr. Osthimer

Bourbon / American Whiskey , Modern Classics

This shaken cocktail has just enough citrus to brighten up the sweet flavor profile. It’s precisely what the doctor ordered.

La Bruja Dulce

Rye Whiskey , Modern Classics

La Bruja Dulce is a witch’s brew of high-quality rye and stand-out liqueurs. The spirit-forward cocktail perfectly balances sweet and spicy flavors.

Wabash Avenue Sour

Whiskey , Modern Classics

The Wabash Avenue Sour updates the Whiskey Sour by adding Chicago’s own FEW bourbon or rye. And that’s not the only ingredient shaking up the classic recipe.

Vodka Gimlet

Vodka , Classics

The classic Gimlet takes gin, but many opt for this vodka version.
