NameDescriptionIngredientsSteps
MargaritaThis is one of those drinks that everyone has a recipe for. This version is my favorite by far, despite the effort required (squeezing limes). The easy way to remember this one is 4:2:1 or 4 parts tequila/mezcal, 2 parts lime juice, 1 part agave syrup. Sauza or Hornitos are both great tequilas to use for this. If you're going with mezcal, try Del Maguey Vida. You can replace the agave syrup with Cointreau (leave out the Gran Marnier) for a more rounded citrus flavor (and more ABV). Also, if you're feeling frisky, muddle a slice or two of jalapeno in there before adding the ice (take the seeds out first or it might be undrinkable).54
ManhattanA classic, simple and delicious. Substitute bourbon for rye for a richer, sweeter cocktail. Many variations here: http://intoxicologist.net/2010/12/make-mine-a-manhattan-holiday/33
Bourbon Mint Tea"The tea is sweet, flavorful, refreshing, and just strong enough to discourage the operation of heavy machinery. In other words, perfectly suited to taking your leisure."56
Diamondback"Bold, strong and deeply alluring, the Diamondback is a robust fortifier, the kind of drink well suited to capping the work week and getting the weekend started."33
Old FashionedThe best version of this drink that I've ever had or made. The orange bitters can be any flavor that might work, cherry is on my list to try. Bitters and sugar amounts can be adjusted a bit to your taste, or course. 53
Ginger JoyA bright, complex, fruity martini with a kick44
Perfect Patron MargaritaAnother take on a classic drink44
Italian AppleA refined version of the Washington Apple cocktail 54
SidecarA classic cognac cocktail34
Hibiscus HighballA refreshing summer cooler34
Roll Pin ShandyFrom Imbibe: "Erik Carlson uses a light, blended whisky that doesn't compete with the bold flavors of the IPA in this take on a classic shandy."64
