Dear Prudence

Dear Prudence cocktail

According to PUNCH magazine, Joaquín Simó at NYC’s Pouring Ribbons calls this recipe “eminently quaffable,” something he devised as a fruity, easy crowd-pleaser.

Despite its broad appeal, there’s a lot to this drink. Fresh grapefruit juice does something wonderful with the rosé tonic wine (Simó uses Lillet Rosé), bringing out a flavor akin to an actual rose.

This drink should be double-strained through a fine mesh strainer, unless you don’t mind the raspberry pips.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and double-strain into a tall ice-filled glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge and a raspberry.

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.
