Sierra Madre Sunrise

This mezcal drink, made with bittersweet Aperol and fresh lemon, can go two ways: with Angostura bitters, it's spicy-earthy-cinnamony. Or try chocolate bitters, which play up the sweet and bitter orange flavors in the Aperol. More

Honey and Marmalade Sour

Orange marmalade may be sweet, but it also offers an underlying bitterness reminiscent of burnt caramel. Lemon juice helps the citrus sing while honey mellows the whole thing out in this intensely flavorful vodka sour. It's the kind of versatile cocktail that's equally appropriate day or night, all year round. More

Thyme for a Salty Dog

Salty Dogs are great with gin, but we like to use vodka in this rendition—its more neutral flavor lets the interplay of bitter grapefruit and woodsy thyme take center stage. The cocktail's signature salt-coated rim gives the tart, herbal combo a welcome jolt. More

Sherry Martini

Pair gin with vermouth and you get botanicals on top of botanicals. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but bring sherry into the mix and you'll find something both more smooth and electrifying, with hints of marcona almonds and a wonderful savory bite. More

Lemongrass Sour

Lemongrass infused vodka—combined with lemon bitters suspended on a head of eggwhite foam—makes for a light and delicately citrusy spring cocktail. More

The Bitter Irishman

This St. Patrick's Day-appropriate cocktail is way better than green beer. The whiskey is light and almost floral, and the amaro is spicy and rich. Fresh lemon gives the drink a punch of refreshing sour flavor, and the drink finishes up with the whiskey's bite and a little bitterness from the amaro. More

Peanut Atole (Hot Mexican Corn Drink With Peanut Flavor)

Mexican atole, a hot drink made from corn, comes in a staggering variety of flavors, from sweet to savory, each one more delicious than the next. In this sweet one, the corn-flavored base, made from masa harina, is enriched with the nutty flavor of roasted peanuts for a warming, aromatic beverage that's perfect for winter. More

Champurrado (Mexican Hot Chocolate and Corn Drink)

Mexican atole, a hot drink made from corn, comes in a staggering variety of flavors, from sweet to savory, each one more delicious than the next. In this sweet one known as champurrado, the corn-flavored base, made from masa harina, is enriched with dark chocolate and cinnamon for a warming, aromatic beverage that's perfect for winter. More

Spicy Chard and Pineapple Smoothie

This smoothie satisfies all my not-too-sweet breakfast desires with a spicy kick of jalapeño, creamy avocado, a hearty helping of greens, and some tropical flavors to round things out. The end result is a slightly-tart, veggie-packed, green smoothie that doesn't taste too 'green.' More

Coquito Smoothie

Inspired by coquito, the Puerto Rican holiday punch, this creamy dairy-free, egg-free smoothie is delicious way to start your day with plenty of eggnog flavor. More
