Greyhound

This highball standard is as straightforward as it comes, with simply two ingredients—fresh grapefruit juice and great vodka—served over ice and stirred. This delicious starting point makes a solid base for a wide breadth of cocktails: add a salted rim for the Salty Dog, swap gin for vodka for a more aromatic tilt or pour a splash of vermouth or amaro, such as Punt e Mes or Campari for the Italian Greyhound.

Harlem Walk

For New York City bartender Brooke Smith, this drink came from makes me think about growing up and spending time in large gatherings at church, where in Alabama at least there was always some kind of combo drink made with frozen sherbet and ginger ale or 7-up —the sort of mixture that every child loved and turned them into screaming and running in circles. But Smith remembers savoring it as a kid and admits that the memory of it is so strong that, as a grown man, if she saw a bowl of ginger ale and sherbet she’d “fucking attack it.” This is her more sensible, adult version of that childhood memory— a summery mix of grapefruit-infused sugar, HH Bespoke Gin, ginger ale, and grapefruit bitters.
