Classic | Cocktail Party

Classic

Classic ingredients, classic balance; this drink truly deserves the name. The earliest recipes specify curaçao or triple sec, but other orange liqueurs can work if you tinker with the proportions a bit.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. You can rim the cocktail glass with sugar for a kick of sweetness, but remember: as with all rimmed drinks, be sure to only wet and rim the outside edge of the glass, not the inside or top. Getting little chunks of sugar clumped up in your drinks is gross!

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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.
