Floral Tequila

Rosangel, the new hibiscus-infused tequila from Gran Centenario, is aged in old port barrels. Fruity and subtly floral, it’s great in cocktails or for sipping straight. $37 for 750 ml; bevmo.com.

Ice in the Round

Mixologists like using big, round pieces of ice for spirits served straight, because they melt slowly and won’t water down drinks. New York’s Museum of Modern Art sells a Japanese-made tray for mixologist wannabes that produces two-inch-wide spheres. $16 for 2 trays; momastore.org.
