I don’t have a favorite cocktail. That being said, I do have “go-to” cocktails that just make me happy. The Paper Plane always makes me smile and is so easy to make. Most basic bars will have the ingredients, so even if it isn’t on the menu they can probably whip one up. The hardest ingredient to find is the Amaro Nonino. I substitute Amaro Montenegro when necessary and most decent bars have a bottle. Outside of then Amaro component, the rest is easy! - Robin Seton Karides
