Honeymoon

Honeymoon cocktail with apple brandy, orange curaçao, Bénédictine, and lemon juice

The classic Honeymoon, from Hugo Ensslin’s 1916 Recipes for Mixed Drinks, is one of our favorite fall drinks. It’s a sweet, enigmatic apple sour, just perfect for welcoming cooler weather and shorter days. This version from the PDT Cocktail Book is well-balanced, with a lovely honey flavor from the Bénédictine (a sweet herbal liqueur).

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.
