Niesen Buzz Bomb

Niesen Buzz Bomb cocktail with Cointreau, cognac, Benedictine, vodka, lime juice, and Champagne

The Niesen Buzz Bomb was created at Manhattan’s Stork Club in the 1930s or 40s, in honor of frequent customer and singer-actress Gertrude Niesen. It’s essentially a high-class Long Island, with a host of top-shelf ingredients working together to create a delicious, high-octane sparkling cocktail.

Ingredients

Instructions

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.
