Mountain Man

Mountain Man

We are so into this Whiskey Sour riff from Natasha David from New York City’s Nitecap bar. It’s the liquid embodiment of a gorgeous fall day in Savannah, Georgia: oakey bourbon, sweet peaches, bright lemon, and the pie-crust flavors of maple and ginger syrups.

David calls for Giffard’s fantastic Pêche de Vigne, one of our favorite peach liqueurs. But there are a number of truly lovely small-batch peach liqueurs on the market today – look for versions by Leopold Bros. or Mississippi River Distilling Company.

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.
