Recipe of the day
My first drink as a 21-year-old, legally imbibing citizen was an Amaretto sour at one of the popular college bars on Pearl Street, in Boulder, Colo. I remember it tasting like sugar, and I remember liking it. I have pictures to document it. And perhaps unfortunately, it was possibly the most dignified drink I had as a new 21-year-old — but I digress.
Now, a few years out of college, I've hopefully reformed my ways. I've jumped on board the craft cocktail scene faster than a bro can shotgun a beer, no looking back now. And now, friends who want their cocktails to match their food aspirations ask me how to make a better cocktail. I say: take those same drinks from your college years and make them better.
Click ahead for revamped "college cocktails."
*There is no craft cocktail equivalent of monkey juice. Sorry to disappoint.
