These stiff cocktail recipes, including a breakfast martini, dark and stormy, Manhattan, and an old-fashioned, are our favorite boozy (and we DO mean boozy!) beverages. Here’s how to make them.
Breakfast MartiniOh, what a way to start a day! Just shake yourself this citrusy martini and take the rest of the morning—and afternoon—off from all your troubles.
Classic Old-Fashioned CocktailA little sugar, a splash of bitters, and a lotta booze—your grandma's go-to drink. (Oh wait, was that just our family?!)
Classic Manhattan CocktailRye whiskey, vermouth, Grand Marnier, and bitters all work the devil's magic in this all-but-forgotten formula for a cocktail classic.
Sazerac CocktailA boozy, much-ballyhooed cocktail of absinthe, brandy, bitters, and sugar that you can mix a blissfully short stumble from your couch.
Hanky Panky CocktailA classic hanky panky calls for gin, sweet vermouth, Fernet Branca, an orange twist, and, after the first sip, a ginormous grin. There's a reason it's a classic.
Dark and Stormy CocktailIt was a dark and stormy night...oops. We mean, this stiff yet slightly sweet cocktail is certain to thunder through your evening.
The Revolver Cocktail"A terrific, deeply flavored cocktail." "A blessing after a rough day at work." That's what folks are saying about this cocktail.
Fatty Daddy CocktailYou've not "made it" until you've an eponymous cocktail all your own. Witness the Fatty Daddy, a sweetly surprising number that packs a punch, just like our own dear David.
Sazerac Cocktail Without AbsintheAll the flavor of the classic without any of the purported hallucinogenic properties. With apologies to Baudelaire, Hemingway, van Gogh, et al.
Little Hot After Dinner ShotsAn innocent little after dinner libation that's sorta got a suave sophisticate thing going on. Consider it a liquid lullaby.
