Drink: Ode to Alexandria

Ingredients: Singani 63, Lillet Blanc, yellow Chartreuse, orange oil

Our take: A lovely whisper of a drink, this cocktail is subtle, while still being spirit-forward. The Lillet contributes a silky texture and a lemony finish. The Singani 63 brings botanical flavors and a little bit of bite.

Drink: The Lady Is a Lush

Ingredients: Singani 63, Lillet Blanc, toasted-poppy-seed syrup, Fee Brothers molasses bitters

Our take: The toasty flavor and oil from the poppy seeds lends smooth texture and depth to the delicate herbal notes of the Singani. Lemon notes float over the Lillet, but don’t be fooled — this drink packs a punch.
