Champagne Cocktail

The quintessential something to sip at an elegant soirée, a large party, or just because it’s a random Tuesday night.

Adonis Cocktail

The Adonis stunningly draws together vermouth, a couple styles of sherry, orange bitters, and a twist. Created in 1887 and named for a Greek god--now that's a pedigree.

White Sangria Spritzer

Crisp white wine, Cointreau, plenty of citrus, and sparkling water collide in this sipper that you can succumb to without regretting in the morning.

French 75 Cocktail

A sophisticated cocktail that's made drinkers swoon for more than a century thanks to the warm hush of Cognac, the sweetly tart lilt of lemon, and the effusive effervescence of Champagne.
Recipe

Black Velvet Cocktail

There's a reason this effervescent mingling of stout and Champagne contains the word "velvet." It's sooooo smooth and subtly sophisticated. Sip for yourself.

Kitty Highball

When you want something to sip all night (or all day) without getting tipsy and without feeling like you're being deprived, this inspired riff on a classic is what you want. Simply red wine spiked with ginger syrup and a splash of seltzer.

Rosé Seltzer

A sweetly tart, subtly flavored, gently intoxicating, remarkably refreshing summer sipper in a fetching shade of pink.
Recipe
