High Ball Stepper

High Ball Stepper cocktail with berry LaCroix, gin, lime juice, and mint syrup

The High Ball Stepper is an adorable “dressed can” cocktail, invented by Benjamin Amberg at Clyde Common in Portland, Oregon. It’s wonderfully minty and fresh, and although it has a healthier-than-usual measure of gin, it still feels light and refreshing thanks to the flavored sparkling water (berry LaCroix, preferably).

Ingredients

Instructions

Pour out half of the can of flavored sparkling water. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice and strain into the can through a small funnel. Garnish with mint and fresh berries, and serve with a straw.

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.
