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.
Juicy summer strawberries are combined with tart lime juice and bright mint in this sweet and sour effervescent vodka cocktail. It's light, not too sugary, and eminently day-drinkable.
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.
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.
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.
The perfect margarita is all about fresh, crisp flavors barely tempered by triple sec and sugar. After testing all the ratios, this is the one we reach for.
Lemongrass infused vodka—combined with lemon bitters suspended on a head of eggwhite foam—makes for a light and delicately citrusy spring cocktail.
This drink blends bourbon, lemon juice, and honey syrup for a whiskey-laced spin on the Bee's Knees.
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.
