The Boulevardier Cocktail

The Boulevardier Cocktail is one of those classic cocktails that everyone should drink on a regular basis. Essentially, it's this wonderful combination of rye whisky, Campari, and sweet vermouth or what you'd get if a Negroni and a Manhattan had a baby cocktail.

A Perfect Manhattan

The Perfect Manhattan gets its name from the equal amounts of sweet and dry vermouth in it.  Although it's no surprise that a drink named after Manhattan would have a variation that calls itself perfect.  

Cranberry Apple Crisp

Tart cranberries, crisp apples, and a hint of orange come together to make a delicious Cranberry Apple Crisp.

The Blood and Sand Cocktail is a classic scotch cocktail named after the Rudolph Valentino movie about a bullfighter from the 1920s.
