Ken Burns Effect

Ken Burns Effect cocktail with rye whiskey and sweet sherry

Cocktail consultant Erick Castro came up with the Ken Burns Effect as a riff on the classic Manhattan formula, with sweet sherry and marachino in place of sweet vermouth.

Castro uses Dry Sack sherry, which is a blend of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenéz sherries. You can use any sweet, dark sherry you have on hand.

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.
