The Genius of the “Juice Shake”

Dave Arnold has a simple secret to a more concentrated, boldly flavored shaken drink.


Easy Cocktail Recipes to Make at Home Right Now

GARIBALDI

“The Garibaldi is a classic and simple mixed drink that we came to love after seeing the way it was served with juice squeezed fresh to order at a place in Sydney called North Bondi Italian Food. The key is squeezing the orange juice immediately before serving. We use a high-speed juicer, that aerates the juice, making it fluffy and textured. It takes seconds to make but is delicate and stunningly light every time—ideal for a refreshing escape and simple enough to whip up at home.” Linden Pride, co-owner, Dante, New York City

Ingredients:

Method: Add 2 ice cubes to glass. Add Campari and a little of the orange juice. Stir well to combine. Add 1 more ice cube and fill remainder of glass with orange juice. Garnish with orange wedge resting on rim and a plastic stirrer.

Double Dealer, New Orleans

ULTIMATELY

“This cocktail is perfect for quarantine life because it reminds me of home, which for me is Serbia. The cucumbers transport me to springtime meals with my family. For everyone else, it’s perfect for quarantine life because it’s a refreshing and well-rounded cocktail. It has the botanicals from the gin, freshness from the cucumber water, citrus from the lime, and the spice from the jalapeños.” —Miki Nikolic, bar director at Double Dealer, New Orleans

Ingredients:

0.5 oz. Jalapeno simple syrup

*For the cucumber water, peel and juice one cucumber

*For the jalapeño simple syrup, use 5 jalapenos for every 15 oz. of simple syrup

Method: Combine all ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a coupe glass.

HAKKATINI

“During a time when many stores are closed, most people want to reach for simple cocktails that don’t sacrifice any flavor. The Hakkatini is perfect for that. It’s made with just four ingredients that are staples in any kitchen and home bar—but it still packs a punch with perfectly balanced sweet, tart, and bitter notes. It’s a great way to spruce up a regular martini when you want to make your weeknight drink a little more special.” —Constantin Alexander, director of beverage, Hakkasan

Ingredients :

¼ oz. Italian red bitter liqueur (such as Campari)

Method : Combine all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake to mix ingredients and fine strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a twist of orange.

AMBROSIA

“The Ambrosia cocktail is a sophisticated yet simple cocktail perfect for spritz lovers. Don Ciccio Ambrosia Aperitivo gives the drink a hint of bitterness, while the prosecco lifts the cocktail and gives it a wonderful effervescence—perfectly refreshing in every way!” Raquel Fowler and Corey Holland, lead bartenders, Via Sophia at the Hamilton Hotel, Washington, D.C

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. Don Ciccio Ambrosia Aperitivo

Method: Combine all ingredients and stir. Serve in a wine glass with ice and garnish with an orange slice.

THE FRESHEST MARGARITA

“The Freshest Margarita ticks all of the boxes for a great at-home cocktail. It’s easy to put together and most of the ingredients are probably already in your pantry. Milagro Silver’s crisp agave-forward flavour, combined with fresh lime and agave nectar (also from the agave plant), make for a bright and tasty cocktail, with which to reward yourself after a long day working from home. It’s also easy to make as a pitcher. If you’re like me and hosting virtual happy hours with your friends, one won’t be enough!” —Jaime Salas, brand ambassador, Milagro Tequila

Ingredients:

Method: Pour all ingredients into a Boston shaker, shake and strain over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

The Morini Classico Negroni

MORINI CLASSICO NEGRONI

“The Negroni is a bitter and rich classic cocktail—perfect for taking your time, sipping while the world hibernates in quarantine. The classic ingredients are easy to find: gin, Campari, sweet vermouth, and an orange. Pour equal parts (1 oz. per person) of each spirit in a glass over ice, stir, then garnish with an orange twist. You can pace yourself by making one drink at a time. Or batch a whole pitcher and store it in the refrigerator. There’s no expiration on a batch because it’s 100-percent booze—so feel free to make a large batch to hopefully outlast the quarantine.” — Hristo Zisovski, beverage director, Altamarea Group

Ingredients :

1.5 oz. London dry gin (Bombay Dry suggested)

1 oz. Sweet wermouth (Cinzano Vermouth 1757 Rosso suggested)

Method : Combine ingredients in a mixing glass. Fill with ice and stir. Strain over a large rock into a double old-fashioned glass. Flame orange disk over cocktail. Pro tip: For the best Negroni, always store your vermouths in the fridge. Remember they are a wine and will oxidize if left out.

JEFFERSON’S MANHATTAN

“We actually developed a bottled and barrel-aged Manhattan a while back. And I really fell in love with the drink during that testing process. The standard version is a beautiful classic that’s easy enough for anyone to build at home, as it requires only three ingredients! It’s the quintessential nightcap, and really allows the complexity of Jefferson’s Very Small Batch to complement the sweet vermouth and bitters. Great for cozying up at night with a good book.” —Trey Zoeller, founder of Jefferson’s Bourbon

Ingredients:

2 oz. Jefferson’s Very Small Batch

2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

Method: Build in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain the chilled cocktail into a coupe glass. Garnish with a cherry.

The Blood Orange Margarita

BLOOD MARGARITA OR GINGER MARGARITA

“We love the recipe for the classic margarita because it only requires three simple ingredients (your favorite tequila, lime, and agave)—all of which can be found in most kitchens and home bars. In addition, tequila is a stimulant and gives us the boost we need to complete tasks and projects with all this extra time spent in our homes! The best part is that you can jazz it up with extra ingredients you have at home, based on your preferences. Good tip: Here at Gurney’s Montauk we do a 1:1 ratio of agave to water to ensure our drinks are never too sweet!” —Jarhn Blutstein, area beverage manager, Gurney’s Resorts

Ingredients:

2 oz. of your favorite tequila

**Add 1 oz. of fresh blood orange (ginger margarita variation) or .5 oz. of freshly-juiced ginger (ginger margarita variation)

Method: Choose your favorite tequila and add 2 oz. to a measuring cup. Mix in 1 oz. fresh lime juice to your drink. Add in 0.75 oz. agave and ensure to include a 1:1 ratio of agave to the mix (the Gurney’s Margarita is never too sweet! To make the Blood Margarita add 1 oz. of fresh blood orange—a delicious winter citrus. Or go the healthy route with .5 oz of freshly-juiced ginger to create the Ginger Margarita.

DIVISION BELL

“The Division Bell is a modern classic and personal favorite that can be made from the comfort of your own home. This mezcal treat was developed by prolific New York City bartender Phil Ward for the opening of Mayahuel in the East Village back in 2009. With five easily available ingredients, the drink offers an aroma of citrus and smoke followed by perfectly-balanced sweet, tart, and bitter notes. This cocktail offers an ideal way to spruce and practice up your homemade cocktail making skills.” —Anthony Pratt, director of food and beverage, Rosewood Hotel Georgia

Ingredients:

30 ml. (or 1 oz.) Casamigos mezcal

15 ml. (or 0.5 oz.) Maraschino liqueur

22 ml. (or 0.74 oz.) Lemon juice

Method: Shake all ingredients hard on cubed ice and pour. Garnish with a grapefruit twist. Serve in coupe.

MINI GIBSON

“The Mini Gibson is an ideal way to try out one of 2020s biggest cocktail trends at home: mini martinis. It’s the perfect size to sample this classic drink, which is deliciously savory in bite-sized form. The simple recipe also allows this fantastic gin to shine, with its sweet apple notes that subtly complement the sourness of the pickled pearl onion to finish.” —Marshall Minaya, beverage director, Valerie, New York City

Ingredients:

1.25 oz. Le Gin de Christian Drouin

Method: Add all ingredients to a mixing glass. Fill with ice. Stir and strain. Pour into a 3-ounce martini glass and garnish with a pickled pear onion.

OLD FASHIONED

“Beyond the Old Fashioned being the second drink that I’ve learned to make as a barback at Death & Co. in New York, here’s the reason that it’s a perfect quarantine cocktail: Standard Domino sugar cubes come almost 200 to the box. One bottle of bitters will last you well beyond the duration of shelter-in-place. I choose Hudson as my base, because the Old Fashioned is designed to accentuate what you already like about your base spirit. If you love your base spirit, adding a little bit of sugar, some bitters (which I consider the salt and pepper of cocktails), and ice—that takes something you already love and amplifies it. The other beauty is that as your stash dwindles from neat pours, you’ll also have a litmus test for what whiskey in your collection made your favorite Old Fashioned. Oranges and lemons are so far off from toilet paper—in terms of what people are hoarding right now. So you’ll be able to find them easily even if you never realized your grocery store stocked them. As a cure for monotony, you just might find it to be an endless experiment because every ingredient outside of the base spirit is a control if you stick to the classic template. You could also decide to go the other way: Have a choose-your-own-adventure experience with the Old Fashioned at home. The Old Fashioned is a template—not a specified recipe. All it requires is a base spirit, sugar, and bitters. Your spirit may become añejo tequila, your bitters may become chocolate mole, and your sugar may be that obscure Italian amaro that’s been collecting dust on your shelf. The thing about the Old Fashioned is that there’s no wrong way to make one. And there’s no wrong way to enjoy one. And you’ll never be bored by all of the potential permutations that you can make with the ingredients you already have.” —David Powell, U.S ambassador, Hudson Whiskey

Ingredients :

1 Sugar cube (or 1 tsp. or 1 packet granulated white sugar)

Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters (or Angostura if you want to go super traditional)

.25 parts club soda (or any water with or without bubbles)

2 parts Hudson Baby Bourbon

Method: In a rocks glass, add the sugar cube and soak with bitters until saturated. Any additional bitters in the bottom of the glass are fine and actually welcome. Add .25 parts club soda or water and muddle into a sugar-and-bitters paste in the bottom of the glass. Add 2 parts Hudson Baby Bourbon whiskey. Add ice—ideally one big cube, but smaller cubes are fine. Stir for 5 to 10 seconds to chill and dilute slightly. Garnish with an orange peel and a lemon peel. Squeeze the peels over the glass to express the essential oils onto the rim of the glass and then put the peels into the glass itself.

STIR CRAZY (HIS & HERS)

From left: The Hers Stir Crazy and His Stir Crazy cocktails

Sophie Burton and Colin Bugbee

“About His & Hers: My husband and I are both beverage professionals. I am the beverage director for Politan Group (five bars and counting) and Colin [Bugbee] is a bartender at JBF Award-winning cocktail bar Cure in New Orleans. We’re both talented and independent—and after trying to make a cocktail together it became obvious that we get twice as much done focusing on our own ideas and then looking for feedback from the other. We both wanted to use chamomile syrup because the tea is such a common ingredient in households. Honestly, it’s like having a cheat code to more flavor. What makes these cocktails so appropriate for the time is understanding different needs and different moods in a confined space—and making room for those differences. We worked with many ingredients—a little more than a person would normally have in their home bar. We’re happy to ensure you that within each of these you: First, have a strong and stiff cocktail for when you’re feeling really pressed about our current times. And second, have something equally strong but light-hearted for when you realize that you’re just grateful to be here.” —Sophie Burton, beverage director at Politan Group (Politan Row Houston, Politan Row Chicago, Politan Row Miami, and St. Roch Market in New Orleans)

HERS (SOPHIE BURTON)

Ingredients:

2 oz. Jameson Irish Whiskey

.5 tsp. Peach liqueur (apricot or another stone fruit liqueur will do!)

2 Dashes Angostura Bitters

3 oz. Topo Chico (another club soda will also do)

Method: Combine all ingredients in a small highball glass. Add ice and stir. Garnish with a rosemary sprig.

HIS (COLIN BUGBEE)

Ingredients:

.5 oz. London Dry Gin (we suggest Bombay Dry or Beefeater)

1 oz. Noilly Prat extra dry vermouth

Method: Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until cold. Strain (without ice) into a coupe or Nick & Nora glass. Garnish with a lemon peel.

*To Make Chamomile Syrup: Boil 1 cup water. Add 2 tea bags of Chamomile tea and steep for 5 minutes. Remove teabags. Measure the amount of tea. Do this by weight! Get out that kitchen scale! Then combine it with an equal (by weight) measure of white (refined) sugar. Stir a bit. Let it cool. It will keep for 2 weeks when refrigerated.

After preparing the two frozen ingredients, prepare a very nice glass in your house first pour the piña colada mix in the glass, followed by the strawberry daiquiri mix. Pour it very carefully and be sure that the red strawberry mix will not combine with the white piña colada mix, so you can form a horizontal design.

Recipe: The Most Classic Cocktail, Miami-Style

Going to Miami and not having a fruity, frosty drink would be like going to the movies and not having popcorn. Order that piña colada! Then, follow it up with a local twist on that most classic of cocktails.

I’m talking about the Old Fashioned, which is as simple as cocktails get (not to mention delicious). It’s just sugar, bitters, and whiskey. The idea behind the Miami-version of this cocktail is just as simple. Just swap out your whisky for the Sunshine State’s favorite spirit: rum.

We sampled this tropics-inspired tipple at Gramps, a kitschy cool bar in the Wynwood Arts District. Named after the maternal grandfather of owner Adam Gersten, it brings to mind that Macklemore song “Thrift Shop.” In other words, we’re talking grandpa style in the coolest of all possible ways — cheap beer and bocce ball included. Oh, and did we mention there’s a pizza window? We’re pretty sure anyone, Gramps included, would approve of that.

But Gersten says there’s more to it than just the look (which, he notes, was originally inspired by his grandfather’s home office, but ended up being nothing like it). “Miami is my hometown and, at the time that I was opening Gramps, a lot of the places I loved were closed or closing,” he explains. “Progress in Miami is unrelenting and there’s no regard for history. So, I wanted the name of the bar and the feeling of the bar to be connected to history, family, tradition — the things that aren’t shown enough respect.”

A Miami-Style Twist on the Most Classic Cocktail

But back to that cocktail (and speaking of tradition), Gersten says he wanted to put a Miami-style twist on a really classic cocktail. What is more classic than an Old Fashioned? And what is more Miami than rum?

“It is the spirit of Miami,” Gersten notes, although the rum he uses isn’t your beach-variety blanco — it’s anejo, which means aged, and has more depth and complexity. Plus, he admits, “I was trying to keep some foot grounded in the traditional Old Fashioned and I needed a brown spirit.” He recommends Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, which is from Venezuela and “a spectacular value,” or Barbancourt, a Haitian rum.

Two other twists — the black pepper syrup, instead of simple syrup, and the orange bitters — add some “spice and zing and cha cha cha,” and are a nod to the Miami palate.
