At first glance, this cocktail from Abigail Gullo—head bartender at New Orleans’ Compere Lapin—seems like an unlikely mix of flavors. Campari and scotch and hard cider? But take a sip, and you’ll realize the ingredients were meant for each other. “Paris Between The Wars is a blend of many different elements,” Gullo says. “Smoke, sour, bitter and crisp, refreshing tartness all come together in perfect harmony.” Whip up a big batch as the welcome drink at your next dinner party or turn it into a punch for a festive fall soirée.
