Heaviest Weight

Heaviest Weight cocktail with rum, banana liqueur, lime juice, pineapple juice, cream of coconut, and Angostura bitters

The Heaviest Weight, from Matt Tocco at Nashville’s Pinewood Social, is quite possibly the perfect drink for sipping poolside on a hot summer’s day. It’s got all the best tropical ingredients: rum (Tocco calls for Appleton V/X), banana, pineapple, coconut, and lime.

Normally, we’d caution you to use only the best banana liqueur here (Tocco uses Briottet Creme de Banane). Yes, a high-quality banana liqueur will shine here – but you know what? A lower-quality liqueur, like 99 Bananas or the like, will do just fine. It’s a sweet, fun, summertime drink that ought to be as easy to make as it is to drink, so don’t feel bad about clearing out the bottom shelf to make it.

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.
