Share a twist on a classic cocktail for summer.
Rum has been so huge lately, and I like to put it in a daiquiri with our Typhoon Tiki Bitters by Embitterment (4 fl. oz. for $20). It’s a heavy-hitting, simple [sip], and the bitters gives it a bit of orange peel and allspice.

How about seasonal produce—can it star in a drink?
This time of year, I love a bramble or a smash, which are whiskey cocktails with fruit. Berries look so good in them.

And what would you drink when it’s 1,000 degrees out?
Well, if you’re hot and bothered, gin and tonics originated in warm climates for medicinal purposes. They’re a great way to be soothed!
