Fireside 75

Fireside 75 cocktail with gin, brandy, lemon juice, cinnamon syrup, and sparkling white wine

Winter in the northern hemisphere is a season for celebrations, and there are few drinks we lean on more heavily in this time than the Fireside 75 from Brad Goocher at Cane & Table in New Orleans.

The Fireside 75 splits the spirit base between classic gin and warming brandy, and spices it all up by substituting cinnamon syrup for the original simple. Since it’s a fairly sweet base, we try to choose a very dry sparkling wine to top it with, but it’s always good with whatever we’ve had on hand.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling wine) with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Top with the sparkling white wine and garnish with a lemon twist.

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.
