It seems like every other bar you walk into these days has some crazy custom creation, arbitrarily named concoctions like 'Dog In A Raincoat' or 'Uncle Jesse's Barn Juice' or 'Sicilian Sexcapade With Sensual Sheep'. And each is probably delicious, if not worth the absurd price you're going o pay for it.
But the fact of the matter is, you really can't beat the classics. These 40 recipes (captured beautifully on Instagram) have survived over the decades and are known around the world for a reason: they are the best. And any amateur/home bartender expecting to impress company better have at least a few of these formulas down pat.
