Classic Cocktails Letterpress Print
When I first applied for a job at a bar, the interviewer asked me how to make a sidecar. I had no idea. I must have said something funny because I got the job anyway (however, the bar closed six months later). Turns out none of these drinks are very difficult to make if you follow the instructions. And yes, the proportions matter. I whittled it down to 32 of the most "classic" that require instruction. My favorite recent discovery is the Brooklyn cocktail, slightly dryer than a manhattan, appropriate anytime of year.
