Marmaduke

Marmaduke cocktail with aquavit, St. Germain, grapefruit juice, brown sugar syrup, and salt

We don’t think we’ll ever get tired of the canine family of grapefruit juice cocktails (the Grayhound, the Chihuahua, etc). Typically, they’re simple, refreshing cocktails – just fresh grapefruit juice, a spirit, and a dusting of salt.

The Marmaduke from NYC’s Jimmy at the James is a little more complex, with two liqueurs and a kiss of brown sugar – but it fits right in with the rest of its furry friends. It’s a great way to introduce someone to the many splendors of aquavit, a caraway spirit that works surprisingly well with citrus ingredients and tiki-styled templates.

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.
