The cognac aromatics are concentrated and well framed, but with only a quarter ounce each of Fernet Branca, Maraschino liqueur and grenadine, it's a prime example of less is more.

Jonathan Chapman Cocktail Recipe

Warm in spice, cool, refreshing and big on apple. There's also notes of allspice, molasses and cinnamon.

An extra red Negroni.

Blackberry Farm Harvest Brew Recipe

The "Harvest Brew" infuses natural pumpkin flavor with Rogue Dead Guy Ale's German Maibock qualities.

Butternut Squash-Infused Rum Recipe

This seasonal butternut squash infusion works wonders with vodka and even adds a warm, fruity note to whiskey, but the most logical route, as with many fall cocktails, is rum.

Orange Marmalade Cocktail Recipe

Delicious, citrusy and refreshing, this drink certainly provides a quick wake-up call.

Maple Leaf Sazerac From Minetta Tavern Recipe

The cocktail contains a unique maple cordial addition to the Sazerac, which refrains from unnecessarily sweetening the drink and instead darkens the drink's character just slightly.

Rosemary Refresher Cocktail Recipe

Aromatic rosemary blends beautifully with fresh juices and reposado tequila for a thirst-quenching cocktail.

The Fourth Down Whiskey Cocktail Recipe

With just four simple ingredients, it was easy to come up with an appropriate name for this whiskey-based cocktail. It packs a punch and is really delicious with a great American whiskey.

Hot Juju Ginger Apple Cider Recipe

Wondering what to do with that pound of Jujubes you've had lingering in the pantry since your nephew's birthday party? You can make a candied syrup using the candy, which can be mixed into a grown-up spiced hot cider.

West Indian Eggnog Recipe

This recipe has all the cream, eggs and booze to help you earn those extra pounds this holiday season.

Kir Royale Recipe

Kir is basically just crème de cassis (black currant liqueur) poured in a wine glass and topped off with dry white wine. Here, you sub in champagne for the wine.

Mulled Wine Recipe

Mulled wine is a popular holiday drink all over Europe. The Hot Toddy's cousin is a red wine and whole spice combination, served warm on cold winter nights.

Rompope Recipe

You might be thinking to yourself, is there a Mexican version of eggnog? There is! It's called rompope and it dates as far back as the 17th century.

Tom And Jerry Recipe

This variation on eggnog served as a warm punch can become a painstaking undertaking — but one that is well worth it.

Coquito Recipe

A cinammony Puerto Rican take on the Christmas cocktail, Coquito gets its creaminess from coconut milk, evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk.
