Spencer

Spencer cocktail with gin, apricot liqueur, bitters, and orange juice

The Spencer is a forgotten gem from the pages of Harry Craddock’s The Savoy Cocktail Book. It’s a small, strong cocktail that should be served in a cold, small glass.

Much of the flavor comes from the apricot brandy, so be sure to use a good one. We like the ones from Luxardo, Marie Brizard, or Giffard.

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.
