Busy Bee

Gin , Modern Classics

When Allison Lindsey, the head bartender at Baltimore’s Bar Vasquez, is juicing cucumbers for this salty riff on the Bee’s Knees, she starts with no more than a teaspoon or so of sea salt per quart. “You have your sweet, your bitter, your salty and the aromatics,” she says. “It makes a great well-balanced cocktail and something a little unexpected.”

Apple Press

Bourbon / American Whiskey Brandy / Cognac , Modern Classics

Jeremy Allen, the head bartender and general manager at Los Angeles’ MiniBar, incorporates Four Roses bourbon, Laird’s apple brandy, fresh apple juice, apple cider vinegar and Fee Brothers black walnut bitters into this cocktail.

The Apple Press “screams fall/ winter fireplace without being a hot drink,” says Allen. “It incorporates apple cider vinegar, which is helpful in preventing the onset of colds and the flu.”

Cucumber Snapper

Gin , Modern Classics

With some tomato but also other ingredients to tone it down and chill it out, this cocktail by Brian Bartels, of New York City’s Fedora and the author of The Bloody Mary: The Lore and Legend of a Cocktail Classic, with Recipes for Brunch and Beyond (Ten Speed Press, $19), includes an ounce of tomato juice. But it’s tempered by cucumber, gin and ginger beer, yielding a refreshing quaff.

Shannon’s Sangrita/Michelada

Beer , Modern Classics

Lower alcohol than most Bloody Marys, Shannon’s Sangrita/Michelada (named for creator Shannon Ponche of Clover Club and Leyenda in New York City) mixes carrot, papaya, orange and lime juices, spiced with two types of chile powder and topped up with Mexican beer for a drink that’s not exactly a Bloody but offers a similar sweet-savory-spicy appeal.
