CLOVER CLUB. Put in dry shaker (no ice): Gin (1 1/2 oz), Raspberry Syrup or Grenadine (1/2 oz), Lemon Juice (1/2 oz), and Egg White (dash). Shake it up. Then add ice and shake again to cool it down. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with lemon peel. I used sugarfree raspberry syrup from Torani and it worked great.

Perfect drink for summer! Use a melon baller with watermelon, cantelope, and honey dew, then freeze. You can then use them as I've in sprite, champagne, or any fruity cocktail!

THE BRONX. Shake with ice: Gin (2 oz), Sweet Vermouth (1/2 oz), Dry Vermouth (1/3 oz), Fresh OJ (1/2 oz). Strain into chilled cocktail glass, add an orange peel. What's fun about this is despite the fruit juice, it does not taste sweet and sticky at all. Perfect for the person who really wants some fruit in their drink today but doesn't want a 'girly drink'. Heck, adding a dash of orange bitters might even grow hair on your chest.

THE MODERN COCKTAIL - Created in 1905 by Charley Mahoney. Lemon Juice (1.5 tsp) stirred with Sugar (1 tsp), Scotch (Famous Grouse, 1 oz), Sloe Gin (Hayman's, 1 oz), Absinthe (Jade 1901, dash), Orange Bitters (dash). Shake with ice, strain, add brandied cherry. This sounds like a crazy random mix but it is not. The balance is excellent. This was no accidental concoction and it's time for a revival.

AVIATION. Mix in a shaker with ice: Gin (2 1/8 oz), Lemon Juice (1/2 oz), Maraschino Liqueur (1/2 oz), Creme de Violette (1/2 oz). Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass, add a cherry. Blue skies for the aviator!

TUXEDO. Stir in a mixing glass with ice: Old Tom Gin (1 oz), Dry Vermouth (1 oz), Maraschino Liqueur (Dash), Absinthe (Dash), Orange Bitters (3 Dashes). Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with cherry and lemon peel. Great combo of some of my favorite ingredients. Very sophisticated!

GREENPOINT - Rye (2 oz), Yellow Chartreuse (.5 oz), Sweet Vermouth (.5 oz), Angostura Bitters (2 dashes), Orange Bitters (1 dash). Stir in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with lemon peel. Named after the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, it stubbornly uses Yellow Chartreuse. Those Brooklynites! This is very spirit forward so use a smooth rye or you will be sorry. I used Cadée... perfect.

DIECI E LODE (FULL MARKS): Gin (2 oz), Campari (1/3 oz), Grapefruit Juice (1 oz) - shake with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge or grapefruit peel. SO easy, so refreshing. The gin you pick will definitely change the tone of the drink; I chose Hendricks Gin and it was a beautiful result. Not too hot and dry, not too sweet or funky. There is only just enough Campari in this to complicate the drink with a touch of bitter.

MORE COWBELL - Gin (1 oz Hendrick's), Lemon Juice (3/4 oz), Cynar (.5 oz - called for Cardamaro but I prefer Cynar, similar but stronger), Aperol (.5 oz), Gomme Syrup (1/8 oz, I made it with Gum Arabic and sugarfree Torani syrup.)  Shake with ice, garnish with lemon peel and a few drops of orange bitters. I've had great summer drinks lately, but this one is in my top 2. Orangey, summery, bitter to balance, silky smooth. And the name. I HAVE A FEVER... AND THE ONLY PRESCRIPTION... IS MORE…

OLD IRISH CURE - Irish Whiskey (Jameson Black - 1 1/3 oz), Dark Rum (Kaniche - 1/3 oz), Calvados (2.5 tsp), Fresh Lemon Juice (1/3 oz), Simple Syrup (Demarara, 1/4 oz), Honey Water Mix (1/2 tsp both), Fresh Ginger Juice (1/2 tsp), Angostura Bitters (Dash). Shake with ice, pour into a coupe or Nick and Nora glass, garnish with apple slice. I was feeling a cold coming on... made enough ginger juice for the week :) I love dropping the apple slice into the drink and letting it soak up the…
