Bring Back the Aperitif: 5 Refreshing Cocktail Recipes from The Modern in NYC

Drinks Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

It's time to officially bring back the aperitif. I'm not talking happy-hour margaritas here, but light, appetite-whetting refreshments to sip (ideally outside) at dusk. Something a little bitter and not too boozy—the perfect aperitif doesn't even really need to include a strong spirit, just some aromatized wine or amaro, sometimes a dash of soda or tonic, just the thing to ease into evening (and accompany a plate of appetizers.) Here are 5 delicious recipes for aperitif cocktails to make at home. More

The Modern's Kina Cocktail

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

The classic Kina Cocktail called for Kina Lillet, which no longer exists. Instead of the sweeter and less-bitter modern Lillet Blanc, this modern version calls for Cocchi Americano, which has Chinchona bark for bitterness. A dash of dry sherry complements that bitterness and adds nutty richness and a golden hue. More

The Modern's Tres Jolie

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

This aperitif cocktail will appeal to those who would normally order a wine spritzer or kir royale, but it has a lovely bitterness from Dubonnet Rouge, an aromatized wine that contains quinine, herbs, and spices. More

This spin on a Pimm's cup uses a good dose of Aperol, and is named for an old Aperol advertisement that claimed that Aperol was good for maintaining your slim figure. More

The Modern's Beneventano

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

This refreshingly bitter aperitif cocktail from The Modern in NYC is a variation on the Americano. It calls for saffron-tinted Strega, an herbal liqueur produced in Benevento, Italy (for which this cocktail is named.) More

The Modern's Long Rum Punch

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

Esi, of Dishing Up Delights, recreates a dish from The Modern: Bar Room in an effort to use up a poussin purchased from her local farmers' market.

It definitely sounds intriguing.... More
