A sour cocktail that tastes like dessert and fun loving creamy oak. Of course, egg white is involved for that silky smooth mouth feel, foamy head and taking some edge off the overproof cask strength bourbon. Bad Eggs...

Here comes a classically designed cocktail that dates itself far back, probably before many of the key ingredients and spirit recipes where as good as they are today. Some of the balance was probably hard to achieve and, today, the recipe stands on its own, even if it's not that exciting.

This cocktail brings on the sweet pineapple flavor with a little rich dark flavors hidden within its taste. The dark rum is well hidden and offers no real burn factor as you sip. A great concept for a sweet-forward punch. If you're a fan of pineapple juice, if you like sweeter drinks than this is the punch you may want to be drinking. It is simple in design and does not require too many ingredients to hunt down.

Today we class it up with Anejo tequila as we create the Spanish Harlem cocktail. We select our favorite vermouth, Vya, for this simple and classic designed cocktail. If you like an approachable aged tequila cocktail, this is your chance to experience anejo in all its glory. It's akin to an aged bourbon but plays more off the agave heritage so you still get that mildly salty like appeal of tequila. You may find those that don't care for tequila won't believe this is a tequila-based drink.

The Fallen Angel is a fairly sour cocktail, maybe even a super-sour cocktail that focuses on gin. Use a gin you like because gin will be a big part of this cocktail, if it's too sour, add a dash of simple syrup. If you're good with a high concentration of lemon, a gin-ride and a hint of mint, this is a must try cocktail.

The Manhattan, a history that's tough to track down in perfect history. We thought about making a manhattan and as we continued to try to find the "right" ingredients and the right style of vermouth, we ended up with David Wondrich's Perfect Manhattan.
