Maison Premiere in Brooklyn, N.Y., is known for its absinthe and oysters, so it's only appropriate that the restaurant reinvented a classic absinthe cocktail.

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.
