Uri
Rating: Unrated
New!
Uri is Kathy Casey's Norwegian play on the Manhattan, which she mixes with Linie, an aged aquavit. Matured in oak casks in ships that travel from Norway to Australia and then back again, Linie is thought to develop a richer flavor from sloshing around in the barrels. Slideshows:  Reinvented Classic Cocktails

Kathy Casey lightens the sidecar by replacing most of the traditional Cognac with vodka and adding muddled fresh blackberries. For an extra hint of citrusy complexity, she sometimes includes a drop of orange blossom water, too. Reinvented Classic Cocktail Recipes

Peach puree and fresh tarragon flavor this summery riff on the French 75. The cocktail is terrific with fresh thyme, too. Slideshow: Modern Summer Cocktails

Kathy Casey's friend Anu Apte, owner of Rob Roy in Seattle, created this unconventional drink with dry, slightly tannic sparkling Pinot Noir and sweet blueberries, honey and ginger liqueur. The red wine looks gorgeous floating on the bluish-beige cocktail. Beautiful Cocktails
French 75
Rating: Unrated
New!
Many believe this drink was devised by American soldiers in World War I hankering for a Tom Collins. They had gin and lemons but no soda, so they used what was at hand: Champagne. The result was named for the French-made 75-millimeter guns used in the war. Slideshow: More Great Champagne Cocktails
