The Ray Long Cocktail, an elegant, absinthe-tinted brandy Manhattan: Cognac, sweet vermouth, absinthe, and Angostura bitters. If you want to put a spin on the original, this is the way to go.
There are many versions of the Creole Cocktail. My favorite looks a lot like a Sazerac: whiskey, curaçao, and bitters, with a fragrant nose of absinthe.
Lime juice, grapefruit juice, cinnamon, falernum, Pernod, and rums, don't forget the rums! The classic tiki Jet Pilot, and its predecessor, Don the Beachcomber Test Pilot. Time to rev up the blender!
Rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, Benedictine and bitters make up this Manhattan variant's tribute to the Triple Crown: the Preakness Cocktail.
Two spirited salutes to the auto industry, one with champagne, the other with Scotch and gin: the Automobile Cocktail, two ways.
Three Dots and a Dash: rum, juices, falernum, honey, and allspice liqueur. And a most excellent, hallmark garnish.
