Dusty Rose

Dusty Rose cocktail with cherry brandy, white creme de cacao, and heavy whipping cream

The Dusty Rose is a dessert cocktail from Dale DeGroff, author of The Craft of the Cocktail. DeGroff’s recipes tend to skew sweet, and this one is no exception, with a rich flavor reminiscent of cherry pie and ice cream. With such a low proof, this one will have you watching your blood sugar rather than your blood alcohol – but if you’re looking for a tasty, creamy drink for dessert, this recipe is hard to beat.

For a slightly less-rich drink, try replacing the heavy cream with sweet cream or half-n’-half.

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.
