Salt Your Cocktail, Not the Rim of the Glass Salt Your Cocktail, Not the Rim of the Glass

Salt makes everything better, and that includes beverages. Beyond margaritas, salt enhances the flavor of and tames any bitterness in almost any cocktail. Though it’s a common practice to rim your glass with sodium chloride, it’s a gross one, which is why you should season the drink, not the drinking vessel.

Why Melons Are the Best Frozen Fruit to Chill Your Drinks With Why Melons Are the Best Frozen Fruit to Chill Your Drinks With

Adding frozen fruit to cocktails to keep them cool is a pretty common practice, but some fruits are simply more chill than others. For fruity cubes that will actually keep your beverage cold for an appreciable amount of time, you want to reach for melon.

Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. Independence Day is coming up, but recent political shenanigans have made me feel less than patriotic. As such, I’ll be celebrating with Sasha Petraske’s Cosmonaut cocktail, because we…

Bring DIY Michelada Ingredients With You Everywhere This Summer Bring DIY Michelada Ingredients With You Everywhere This Summer

On a recent summer Sunday, I was drinking a Modelo with my friend Meghan at a bar and lamenting that it wasn’t a michelada. I’d tried to order one, but the bartender told me they didn’t have them, and while the cold can of beer was refreshing, I wanted it spiked with spices, hot sauce and lime.

Stay Cool and Tipsy With a Cheerwine Kalimotxo Stay Cool and Tipsy With a Cheerwine Kalimotxo

Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations.

This Is the Easiest, Freshest Way to Make a Bloody Mary This Summer This Is the Easiest, Freshest Way to Make a Bloody Mary This Summer

The Bloody Mary is a drink for all seasons, but there’s something unpleasant about sipping thick, soup-like concoctions when outdoor temperatures start to rise. To beat the heat and still enjoy your favorite savory brunch cocktail, skip the mix entirely and make your own with freshly pureed tomatoes.

How to Make a Gin & Tonic That Doesn't Suck How to Make a Gin & Tonic That Doesn't Suck

In a simple libation like a gin & tonic, the spirit should really shine. Too often, cloying, crappy tonic obscures the botanical qualities of its partner, rendering the G&T much less refreshing than it should be. Luckily, long-time cocktail writer Camper English—who literally wrote the book on the beverage—has some…

How to Train Your Own Neural Network How to Train Your Own Neural Network

Artificial intelligence (AI) seems poised to run most of the world these days: it’s detecting skin cancer, looking for hate speech on Facebook, and even flagging possible lies in police reports in Spain. But AIs aren’t all run by mega-corporations and governments; you can download some algorithms and play with them…

The Best Meatless Ways to Use Liquid Smoke The Best Meatless Ways to Use Liquid Smoke

Liquid smoke, an additive that imparts a charred wood flavor to food without using a smoker, has been dismissed as both “cheating” and “nasty” but, if used with a delicate hand, it can produce some tasty results.. I love liquid smoke in my apartment-approved, smoke-free, sous-vide ribs, but it has other clever uses,…

The Best Way to Keep Your Punch Cold The Best Way to Keep Your Punch Cold

A bunch of punch screams “party,” but a glass bowl—while very pretty—is not the best choice, thermodynamically speaking, especially if you’re serving out of doors. Couple that with ice, which is famously known for melting, and your punch can get warm and watery real fast.

Get Your Rum Fix With a Palmetto Cocktail Get Your Rum Fix With a Palmetto Cocktail

Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. This week we’re making a palmetto cocktail, because I finally had to turn my A/C on, and hot weather calls for rum.

Age Your Lime Juice for the Best-Tasting Cocktail Age Your Lime Juice for the Best-Tasting Cocktail

Fresh lime juice is a key component to many fine beverages, and it’s always been my understanding that you want it as fresh as you can get it. This thinking, it turns out, was folly. For the best tasting beverage, you want to let your juice age for a little bit—ideally four to 10 hours.

Sip On These Hibiki Alternatives Until Japan's Whiskey Shortage Is Over Sip On These Hibiki Alternatives Until Japan's Whiskey Shortage Is Over

Last week brought terrible news to Japanese whiskey fans: Suntory plans on halting sales of the wildly popular, and fairly affordable, Hakushu 12-year-old single malt and the Hibiki 17-year-old blend. But fear not oh, drinker of smooth spirits, there are other great options out there. These whiskeys may not be the…
