Cocktail Party

Several plates with fluorescent glowing Jello molds

Glow in the Dark Jello

The spirits summoned for this ghostly glow-in-the-dark Jello hail from a bottle, not the supernatural. (It’s just a gin and tonic under a black light. Who knew?!)

Spicy Chex mix scattered on a baking sheet with a spoon lying in the middle.

Spicy Chex Mix

This is not the Chex mix of your childhood. This is something completely different. And its greatness simply must be experienced to be truly understood.

A southside cocktail on a napkin on a silver tray with a potato chip and sprig of mint beside it.

Southside Cocktail

Mint. Muddled. Mine. When we’ve got this gin-based mojito on our minds, those are about the only words we can muster. Well, maybe add “More.”

Three red wine popsicles on a silver tray.

Red Wine Popsicles

Should red wine go to that popsicle place? Heck yeah. They don’t call ’em sultry summer evenings for nothing. (But please, not your best bottle of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.)

Two glasses of bacon bourbon with strips of cooked bacon in each glass and a bottle of bourbon in the background.

Bacon-Infused Bourbon

Bacon. Bourbon. Boom. The smokiness of cured pork lends its subtle loveliness to the South’s smoothest booze.

Three glasses of mezcal negroni garnished with orange peel.

Mezcal Negroni

Smoky mezcal and Damiana liqueur stand in for gin in this Mexican-inspired riff on the classic Negroni. Caution: You may never go back to your old ways.
