Millionaire Cocktail

There are a few cocktails that go by this name, but my favorite is this version with rye (or bourbon), grenadine, pastis, curaçao or Grand Marnier, and an egg white. It's rich and mildly creamy, with mellow whiskey flavors rounded out by sweet fruitiness and just a hint of anise. More

Architects and Kings

Bartender Josh Relkin developed this recipe for Sable Kitchen & Bar in Chicago. It plays on the bitter side of coffee, adding herbal amaro and spicy bitters. Topped with whipped cream, it's a great way to wind down after dinner. More

New Friend

This twist on the classic Old Pal cocktail uses lighter-flavored Aperol instead of Campari, and brings in bitter Cocchi Americano in the place of dry vermouth. It's an easy-drinking combination. More

Boy Blue

This riff on the classic King Cole cocktail subs in Hochstadter's Rock and Rye for the bourbon and simple syrup and increases the dose of Fernet Branca. Instead of an orange garnish, you'll add a little orange curaçao. More

The Fine Feller Cocktail

This recipe from bartender Daniel Hyatt finally gives you a way to work pine needles into your cocktail routine. It's essentially iced tea with a kick, offering well-balanced sweetness and subtle evergreen flavor. Christmas trees, beware! More

Kevin Schulz of Bridge Bar in Chicago tried a sour ale, vermouth, and Coke cocktail in LA that led him to create The Coked-Up Monk, his own "flip" on the concept, with the addition of an egg white fizz and whiskey. More
