Fallback | Cocktail Party


The Fallback is an autumn-tinged nightcap with the flavor and scent of spiced, roasted apples and plums. It’s the creation of the late Sasha Petraske, and a testament to the enduring brilliance of his mixological legacy.

We often treat rye and bourbon as somewhat interchangable; here, though, we stick with rye. Bourbon would be a bit too sweet, and the drink really benefits from the bright, peppery spice of rye whiskey.



Stir all ingredients with ice until well-chilled. Strain into an ice-filled short glass. Express an orange twist over the drink and drop in as a garnish.

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.
