Bobby Burns

Bobby Burns cocktail with scotch, sweet vermouth, and Bénédictine

This old cocktail has seen a few variations in its long life – it’s been made with Bénédictine, Drambuie, absinthe, and likely other herbal liqueurs.

We like Gaz Regan’s recipe from The Joy of Cocktails. He recommends starting with two dashes of Bénédictine, a sweet green herbal liqueur, and increasing to taste.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
