Sinker

Sinker cocktail with scotch and pineapple juice

This soon-to-be classic from Dan Scott at The Whaling Club in LA tastes like a late-night campfire on the beach: smoky, tropical, and alluring.

A light, blended scotch (or even a Japanese whisky) is better here than a rare Scottish single-malt; just a hint of smoke is all that’s needed to bring it together.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a wedge of pineapple or a slice of candied ginger.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

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.
