This honey-sweetened, Prohibition-era cocktail is clean, refreshing and simple.

This delicious Brazilian cocktail is deceptively potent.

6. Champagne Cocktail
Turn a glass of Champagne into an incredible cocktail simply by adding an Angostura-sprinkled sugar cube.

7. Manhattan
Stirred and strong, this is a go-to for whiskey lovers.
