Overrated: Moscow mule
"This is one of the most over-ordered off-the-menu cocktails. While I love ginger beer, I think people are better off getting a ginger beer experience with a Dark & Stormy or gin-gin mule."
Underrated: Air Mail
"A good sub for a French 75, I love how Air Mails use sparkling wine or Champagne as an effervescence, letting the rum shine through, along with honey and lime."
"I really respect the incredible job the Fratelli Branca team has done marketing fernet for taking shots, but why is it still so pervasive? Instead, buy me a pour of Matifoc Rancio Sec or Dolin Dry any day."
Underrated: Gin and tonic
"There's no more perfect way to experience the bounty of new gins on the market than by simply ordering it with tonic and a splash of lime juice. We love Fentimans, but pick any tonic, and start to find your new favorite gins."
