Hop Toad

Hop Toad cocktail with rum and apricot liqueur

We found this in our beloved tome, The Joy of Cocktails. Author Gaz Regan says that he found it in an ancient Waldorf-Astoria cocktail book, and freshened it up a bit by adding bitters and tweaking the ratios. He calls for dark rum, but nearly any kind of rum is lovely in this.

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.
