Up Your Cocktail Game With These

When the time comes to entertain friends in your home again, don’t just serve up a 6-pack or discount wine. Dazzle them with a tasty cocktail.

Gin-phobic people may not have had it served properly. Food & Wine suggests grabbing a dry gin and adding the flavors of bright hibiscus, citrus, and fresh herbs, which pair well with the liquor’s juniper and warming spices.

Here’s an exciting martini that will wow the taste buds: mix 5 parts vodka, 2 parts vermouth, and a large splash of either colatura or anchovy juice.

Overdo it with the tequila in your early 20s? Become reacquainted by mixing 3 parts tequila with 2 parts triple sec, then splash the juice of half a lime, and the juice of half a blood orange.
