My Oh My Ty Cocktail

Absinthe meets the mai tai meets the French Caribbean in the tiki-fabulous cooler. Absinthe and rum are old friends, and this drinks's almond and orange elements are gorgeous with the anise-forward spirit. Created by Brian Miller of Death & Company in New York.

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.
