Momisette

Pastis , Classics

This classic French cocktail combines licorice and almond flavors.

Green Tea Highball

Whiskey , Modern Classics

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

Make It Count

Campari , Modern Classics

Pamela Wiznitzer of Seamstress in New York City thinks that if you have just one drink, you might as well Make It Count. This lovely red-hued cocktail takes the bitterness of Campari and mellows it out with a little honey syrup and sweet blood orange. It gets a little sparkle from soda water and proves perfectly refreshing on hot day or as an after-dinner treat.

Marzipan Old Fashioned

Mezcal Tequila , Modern Classics

Beverage director Cody Pruitt melts De La Rosa peanut marzipan candies into a marzipan syrup to sweeten this mezcal- and tequila-based Old Fashioned. A touch of oloroso sherry echoes the nutty flavors from the peanut-studded candy.

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.”

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.

Wisconsin Old Fashioned

Brandy / Cognac , Classics

This cocktail, aka the Brandy Old Fashioned, is practically the official Wisconsin state drink and takes brandy instead of whiskey.

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.

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.

Vodka Red Bull

Vodka , Modern Classics

Sometimes you want an expertly made and well-balanced cocktail. And sometimes you want some booze and artificial energy. Enter the Vodka Red Bull, once and arguably still quite popular at many city clubs and beyond.
