The Montserrat cocktail recipe.

London-based Charles McCarthy, global cocktail consultant for Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey, offers up a special tip for Montserrat preparation: put a napkin over the rocks glass and place a sugar cube atop it, then douse the sugar in bitters, which allows the cube to soak up the perfect amount of flavoring. "You can actually watch the sugar drinking the bitters," McCarthy says. Then, simply drop the sugar cube into the glass, break it up, and proceed with the recipe.

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.
