Drink This Now: The Portland 75

Drinks Elana Lepkowski Post a comment

Clear Creek Distillery has bottled the smell of a Christmas tree and made it into drinkable form. While nice to drink on its own, finding a cocktail to complement the strong, woodsy character of this spirit is tricky. Here, a delicious new twist on the French 75, named for the town where the Douglas Fir Eau de Vie is made. More

3 Colorful Bellinis To Make for Mother's Day

Drinks Heather Meldrom Post a comment

Now, if your mom is like my mom, then she loves nothing more than a fruity, sparkling cocktail to go along with that meal and celebrate her day. My mom's guilty pleasure is Riunite Lambrusco and Sprite on ice (so nice!), but don't tell her I told you. Since seasonal fruit is just starting to make its way into the picture again, the Bellini is an ideal beverage option. Here are three variations we love. More

The Bitter Mimosa

Serious Eats Autumn Giles 1 comment

There's serious potential for the mimosa outside of girly-drink territory. With a base of grapefruit juice and sparkling wine, this drink becomes much more complex and savory with a dose of Cynar. More

The Blur from Nopa

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman 2 comments

You've seen bubbly brunch drinks before, but this tart lime variation, served at San Francisco's Nopa (one of our favorite Bay Area brunch spots) is a bit unusual, made with herbal Green Chartreuse and maraschino liqueur to sweeten. More

South x Southwest

Serious Eats Roger Kamholz Post a comment

When Josh Pearson of Sepia in Chicago first created this tequila-based drink, it was intended to be served with Australian sparkling wine (south by southwest, get it?). But when supplies of the stuff became unreliable, Sepia switched to Moscato d'Asti as the topper for this ongoing crowd favorite. More

The Devereaux from Freemans

Negroni Sbagliato

Serious Eats Michael Dietsch Post a comment

Have you ever really bungled a cocktail? I mean, really screwed it up to the point where you had to toss it in the sink? With the Negroni Sbagliato, you can screw up a drink and yet still make something delicious. You see, sbagliato, in Italian, means "bungled" or "mistaken." More

Bonnie Prince Charlie

Serious Eats The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

It's a sparkler, but on the dry side, crisp Veuve Ambal brut blanc de blanc with Drambuie (there's the Scotch tie-in), St. Germain (which McCarthy calls "liquid MSG"), and a twist of lemon. Leave the lemon pith side up and it'll bubble effusively for minutes on end. More

Napa Valley Mojito

Serious Eats Maggie Hoffman 1 comment

If you're hosting brunch and you want to serve something a little more creative than the standard mimosa, consider this tart and fresh variation on the mojito. Rather than using club soda to get fizzy, this drink employs a little sparkling wine, plus a handful of muddled grapes to add a fruity complexity. More
