Ardbeg’s Smoky Bloody Mary

Scotch Whiskey , Modern Classics

Why settle for the usual Bloody Mary? Give it a delectable smoky update by adding Ardbeg and all the right garnishes. It will quickly be clear how premium scotch can elevate the classic vodka cocktail.

Rosemary Paloma

Tequila , Modern Classics

The classic grapefruit Paloma gets a hint of herby goodness.

M Gin & Tonic

Gin , Modern Classics

Chicago’s RPM Steak rolled out three G&Ts for its summer menu—an “R,” a “P” and an “M,” appropriately. The M is an especially distinct take on the classic Gin & Tonic—a darker, more lush version of the usually bright and zippy drink.

A Drink, Yoda Is

Mezcal , Modern Classics

The folks at Datz in Tampa like to have fun with their food and drink, be it with candy in the cocktails or nods to pop culture icons. This homage to that tiny little pointy-eared bundle of wisdom, Yoda, by bar manager Morgan Zuch manages to make wayward whimsy taste pretty great.

Sarlacc Pit

Rum , Modern Classics

At The Sixth in Chicago’s Lincoln Square, beverage director Benjamin Schiller couldn’t resist making a molded pate de fruit head garnish of Darth Vader (basically a room-stable gummy bear) for this cheerful tropical drink, served up in a Boba Fett Tiki glass, of course. But even if you don’t want to go that deep into Empire kitsch, this drink, named for the sand-dwelling, flesh-eating fave of Jabba the Hutt, is pretty easy to stir up and throw down in a few delicious sips. Bonus: The Han’s mix is really a tweaked version of famed Tiki maestro Donn Beach’s Don’s Mix. Sweet!

Flying Solo

Tequila , Modern Classics

Louis Hirsch, the GM of Morels Steakhouse & Bistro at The Palazzo in Las Vegas, created this nod to reluctant rebel pilot and all-around intergalactic heartthrob Han Solo because only a person of his confidence could find a positive use for that pink-headed stepchild of the wine world, white zinfandel.
