Witches Ginger Brew Cocktail

Courtesy Jennifer Clark, bar manager, Sternewirth at Hotel Emma at Pearl, San Antonio, TX This “juicy, citrusy, fruity” drink is a riff on the classic Moscow Mule, Clark says. Therefore, this drink also happily works with vodka, if preferred. Of note, the more blackberries used, the darker purple the brew will become. Clark offers these [...]

Doppio Spritz

Joe Campanale’s Doppio Spritz was the winner of our recent blind spritz tasting. Making use of two different aperitivos—one classically Italian and one from Brooklyn—his formula is fairly straightforward, but omits prosecco in favor of tonic water for an extra gentian kick. INGREDIENTS Serving: 1 1 ounce Contratto Aperitif 1 ounce Forthave Aperitivo 1 ounce [...]

Crepes, France

French crepes would take some beating in the Pancake Hall of Fame -- if there's not one, there should be. These ultra-thin pancakes originated in Brittany in northwest France, way back in the 13th century, but have since become beloved the world over. They can be either sweet with fillings like fruit preserves, syrups or [...]

Campari’s Secret History

I've been coming here since 1978, when I was 17,” says writer and historian David Wondrich, as he settles into an outdoor table at McSorley’s Old Ale House, the celebrated Irish bar that opened in New York’s East Village in 1854.

The Only Apple Dessert You’ll Ever Need

Despite my overwhelming enthusiasm for anything fall-related, apple-based desserts have never been my thing. They feel like the not-quite-as-vibrant cousin of lemon meringue and key lime tarts and less indulgent than a banana cream. But last week when I was given a surplus of orchard apples from a friend, I knew I had to find [...]

MAPLE LEAF COCKTAIL RECIPE Maple syrup is underutilized and often looked over because of honey and agave. It also gets placed in autumn drinks, but it can be used for so much more. It's a soft type of sweet that doesn't linger, and can taste different depending on where it came from. Ingredients: 1.5oz bourbon or [...]

The Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe You’ll Ever Need

The only thing worse than a chocolate chip cookie that's dubbed as "healthy" is one that tastes like it is—using applesauce, protein powder, or Splenda to pass as better-for-you (but it tastes  nothing like what your mom used to make, or the ooey-gooey goodness they're selling at your local bakery). In order to avoid that, we've taken a traditional chocolate [...]

The Easiest Key Lime Pie Recipe

This is the easiest pie in the history of baking. Mix, pour, bake, serve, devour. Simple as that. It's so easy, it'll become your go-to for potluck and dinner parties. Tell them you'll bring dessert and show up with a Key lime pie (or two). If you can't find bottled Key lime juice (or fresh Key limes) in [...]
