I don't always drink coffee, but when I do, I drink it in my eggnog.
'alcohol' on Serious Eats

Our first Cook the Book column of 2011 is going to feature Amanda Hesser's newly released The Essential New York Times Cookbook, a compilation favorite recipes spanning the paper's 160 years. As an intro to the feature we thought we'd bring you a sneak peak: a Bourbon Slush perfect for New Year's Eve.
[Illustration: Helen Jane Hearn] Zombies are called zombies because they are seriously alcohol laden. According to the original Zombie recipe, there are the equivalent of seven and a half ounces of alcohol in a just one Zombie. This would compare...
For me, Concord grapes are one of the highlights of early fall. Their fleeting season combined with their fantastic sweet-tart flavor and curious thick-skinned texture makes them exciting to eat straight off of the bunch, but even more thrilling when shaken up into this Concord Spritzer from Laurent Tourondel's Fresh from the Market.
Lately infusing my own spirits has become something of an obsession, and I have a big enough collection of bottles filled with fruits, herbs, and spices sitting under my sink to prove it. So when I came across this somewhat strange recipe for Milk Liqueur from the Azores in David Leite's The New Portuguese Table there was no way that I wasn't going to try it.
A simple gin sour given a boost of character and flavor by the addition of celery bitters, Stephan's Sour is a classically styled drink from Seattle bartender Murray Stenson, winner of the "American Bartender of the Year" award at last week's Tales of the Cocktail.

My hallmark recipe for the most colorful summertime cooler. Beautiful and delicious.
Tiki drinks are rarely simple to make. But the Hai Karate—an original drink by exotic-drink expert Jeff "Beachbum" Berry—is something of an exception. While many faux-tropical drink recipes reach deep into the mixological pantry, this cocktail calls for little more than several types of juice, a shake of bitters, and the gentle richness of Virgin Islands rum.
The Princeton Cocktail dates to the late 19th century, when New York barman George Kappeler mixed them alongside other Ivy League-named drinks at the Holland House bar. Heavy and rich, a measure of port lends not only flavor to this drink, but an elegant appearance as it settles at the bottom of the cocktail glass.

Aside from a year of Spanish classes in high school, all of my knowledge of the Spanish language has come from working in restaurants. I can't carry on a basic conversation, but I can dissect a menu like a champ....
For fortification, the Mamie Taylor relies on blended scotch, but while this dark spirit can evoke the cooler months, fresh lime juice lightens the spirit's ponderous demeanor, and a spicy ginger ale or ginger beer places it firmly in summer-cooler territory.

If you have a bottle of maraschino lying around from experimenting with Aviations or other cocktails of that ilk, break it out for the Seventh Heaven and take your palate for a walk through the jitterbug era.
There's no denying that we're settling into summer. Over the past couple of years we've suggested a number of seasonal refreshers; here are a few to look into as you plan your summer activities.
