Django Reinhardt

Vermouth / Aperitif Wine , Modern Classics

This cocktail, which appears in Kat Odell’s Day Drinking: 50 Cocktails for a Mellow Buzz (Workman Publishing Company, $15.95), was created by Erick Castro of San Diego’s Polite Provisions.

Spicy Margarita

Tequila , Modern Classics

While the rest of humanity sucks back sickly sweet blender bombs this Cinco de Mayo, find your way to a more serious drink. Muddled jalapeño adds a spicy edge to the baked agave flavors of Tequila CAZADORES Reposado for a Margarita that’s fit for the fifth of May—or any other day of the year.
