Rosemary Gimlet
Rating: Unrated
New!
With a generous portion of lime juice, this puckery Rosemary Gimlet is balanced by the piney rosemary-honey syrup. Using botanically bracing gin makes it a gimlet; if you like, try substituting white rum for the gin to make a rosemary daiquiri.
Irish Buck Cocktail
Rating: Unrated
New!
Light yet oaky, Irish whiskey joins tart lemon juice, honey, and spicy ginger beer in this refreshing, fizzy, basil-scented Irish Buck cocktail.
Winter Berries Cocktail
Rating: Unrated
New!
Fruity, rich, and mildly sweet dark-berry liqueur plays well with both effervescent sparkling wine in this Winter Berries cocktail, while grain-forward bourbon adds a touch of heat. Garnish this bubbly sipper with a thin half-moon slice of lemon.
Apple Old-Fashioned
Rating: Unrated
New!
With a deep warmth from applejack, this variation on an Old-Fashioned lets floral honey and fresh apple flavors shine without getting overpowered. For a hot drink, combine ingredients in a heatproof glass with 2 ounces boiling water.
Rum and Orange Cocktail
Rating: Unrated
New!
Amaro Montenegro, an Italian digestif, brings strong flavors of orange to this pleasantly bitter cocktail. The drink starts out warm, with light, molasses-y sweetness coming through the first sip, but packs a pleasantly bitter bite. It's a touch smoky and delightfully strong. Finish it with a dash of grapefruit bitters, and garnish with a grapefruit peel twist.
Gin's trusty sidekick has so much more potential.

Grapefruit Vodka Soda
Rating: Unrated
New!
Letting vodka steep with grapefruit segments-you don't want the bitter pith here-gives you a juicy, fresh grapefruit-infused vodka that retains the fruit's vibrant flavor and needs nothing more than club soda and ice to become a delicious, bone-dry cocktail. Orange, tangerine, and Meyer lemon would all be delicious here, too.
