It's Now Time To Smoke Your Cocktails
If there’s any cocktail that could be drunk most anytime, it’s the Whiskey Sour. With three ingredients, it’s the perfect Build-a-Bear-style cocktail that can be adapted to any palate. Like it silky? Add an egg white. Like it wacky? Top with red wine. Like it smoky? Enter the Smoky Sour. Lapsang souchong tea syrup adds the woodsy element to this cocktail, a drink designed for those who want the smoke of Scotch but not its taste.Get the recipe.
If you like ’em refreshing, you’ll stop drinking the always-delicious Paloma when it’s pried from your cold, dead hands. Luckily, there are just a couple changes required to make this drink fall-ready. Combining both tequila and mezcal and throwing in a splash of grapefruit-flavored vodka gives this lively classic a substantive wallop of alcohol to ease you into the later months of the year. Agave nectar and egg white contribute a smooth richness, too.Get the recipe.
