PX

From the famous and famously-hard-to-find PX Lounge in Alexandria (hint: look for the blue light) comes this recipe for the bar's own version of pirate grog, engineered this time for a more refined audience. The spiced rum, soothing lemon tea, and citrus juice creates a nice, bright refreshment that's just as good for enjoying slowly as it is for fighting off scurvy (kidding).

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
