Johann Goes to Mexico

Johann Goes to Mexico cocktail with mezcal and Angostura bitters

It’s rare to find a mezcal drink where those smoky flavors don’t overwhelm the drink, but bartender Josie Packard of Boston’s Drink bar has pulled it off. The huge serving of aromatic bitters is what does the trick, bringing peppers and spices to match the woody smoke of the mezcal.

This is a drink best served very small, and very cold. Use your smallest glass, and pop it in the freezer well in advance so it’s ice-cold.

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.
