This three ingredient cocktail is as elegant as it is simple. It allows vermouth, which normally plays a supporting role, to take center stage. A wonder low ABV option that dates back more than 100 years.
Ingredients2 ounces dry vermouth (we favor Dolin Dry)
1 ounce Bénédictine
Absinthe, to rinse
Rinse the inside of a chilled coupe with absinthe, and set aside. Add Vermouth and Bénédictine to a mixing glass with ice, and stir. Strain into the chilled coupe, garnish with an orange twice, or if you're feeling fancy, something like what you see here.
Note: The classic spec calls for 3 dashes of absinthe added to the mixing glass, but we find that can be quite overpowering, so opt for a rinse instead. If you simply adore absinthe, try increasing to taste
Everyone loves a margarita. But sometimes the remix is even better than the original. And that's the case with this delightful riff on the Cinco de Mayo mainstay featuring Nahmias Mahia Fig Spirit.
Combine lemon juice and cilantro in a shaker. Muddle gently. Add all other ingredients and ice. Shake hard to combine, dilute, and chill. Double strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with cilantro.
To make Meyer Lemon Oleo Saccharum: Peel Meyer lemons, ensuring as little pith as possible. Combine with equal parts (by weight) white sugar and muddle gently. Cover in refrigerator 2-3 days until syrup forms. Strain syrup and keep refrigerated.

Who doesn't love a Mai Tai? For those who don't want to choose between the tiki classic and a love of the bitter, we have this excellent cocktail.
Last time we made this excellent concoction, we used Virago Four Port Rum, which gives wonderful flavor and just the funk you need to match the boldness of the Campari.
You can also make it, as it was originally made, with Smith & Cross Jamaican Rum, which really brings the funk.
Whatever rum you choose, make it one with enough assertiveness to play its role in this excellent drink.
Shake all ingredients with a small amount of ice in a cocktail shaker.
Fill a rocks glass with (crushed) ice. Strain the cocktail into the glass. Add more crushed ice on top, if you're using it, and garnish with a sprig of mint.
