Old-school, but approachably so. Dry and herbal. A great aperitif.
Like the Screwdriver, the Harvey Wallbanger has sadly waned in popularity, probably due to it being served with packaged orange juice. When made with freshly
Hemingway Special Daiquiri/Papa Doble
This drink is also known as a Papa Doble for good reason, it's twice the size of a regular cocktail. Hence the above recipe will fill one oversize Martini
A Daiquiri made with flavoursome honey in place of sugar, or a Bee's Knees with rum in place of gin. However you view this, it's damn tasty.
Hot Buttered Rum
In his The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, David Embury says, The Hot Spiced Rum is bad enough, but the lump of butter is the final insult. It blends with the
Hot Whisky Toddy
The faintly smoky flavours of Scotch add spice to this warming drink that's great when you're feeling down with a cold or the flu.

A slightly sour bittersweet riff on the Pegu Club. The original is just on the tart side of balanced without our addition of the optional spoon of sugar
A lightly spicy blend of three characterful rums with citrus mellowed by blending with crushed ice.
John Collins/Gin Collins
A refreshing balance of sour lemon and sugar, laced with gin and lengthened with soda.
Bittersweet and fruity with pungent rum notes sipped through crushed ice. Properly Tiki-tastic.
Traditionally made 1/3 cassis to 2/3 wine, that's too sweet for most modern palates. We recommend a ratio of one part cassis to between five and seven

Chartreuse devotees will love this balanced, tangy drink. I'm one.
Zesty, almost creamy, lemon enlivened with fizz.
A gin-based sour with fino sherry adding distinctive, almost salty, notes. Orange bitters and a grapefruit zest twist contribute to this cocktail's delicate
