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.
Hair of the Dog: the Morning Glory Cocktail
Whiskey, cognac, curacao, and absinthe—the Morning Glory Cocktail, a brown-spirits brunch delight and "hangover cure."
The Automobile Cocktail, Two Ways
Two spirited salutes to the auto industry, one with champagne, the other with Scotch and gin: the Automobile Cocktail, two ways.
Two Nights at the Opera
Gin, Dubonnet, and curaçao: Jacques Straub's original Opera Cocktail.
The Satan’s Whiskers Cocktail
Satan's Whiskers: London Dry Gin, orange juice, Grand Marnier, sweet and dry vermouths, and bitters.
A return to Havana — the El Presidente Cocktail
El Presidente Cocktail: Cuban (or Puerto Rican) rum, dry vermouth and curaçao.
Margarita — the Tequila Daisy
The “daisy” is a sour made with triple sec or orange curaçao instead of straight sugar. The Margarita is one of the most famous examples: white tequila, lime juice, Cointeau and sugar.
The Marlene Dietrich Cocktail
The Marlene Dietrich Cocktail: Canadian whisky, curaçao, and bitters, garnished with wedges of lemon and orange.
Absinthe and Brandy—The Bombay Cocktail
The Bombay Cocktail: brandy, sweet and dry vermouths, curaçao and absinthe.
The Mai Tai
The Mai Tai: Jamaican rum, light rum, Grand Marnier, orgeat and lime juice. And ice. More ice.
