Brooklyn Burro

Recipe by Ivy Mix, Head Bartender and Co-Owner at Leyenda in Brooklyn, NY, and the 2015 Best American Bartender of the Year.

“Ivy’s bold booze choices reveal unexpected depths of flavor in standard cocktails. Her riff on a Moscow Mule takes things up a notch with rum instead of vodka and some pineapple juice to add a hint of sweet to the spice of ginger. Ideal for a group cheers (or three) at the bridal party meet-and-greet.” —Patrick


Shake ingredients and strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Top with soda. Garnish with a lime wheel and ginger candy.

Spirits aficionados and brothers Patrick, Peter, and Sean Janelle, together with veteran bartender Maxwell Britten, launched The Liquor Cabinet as the definitive guide to all things boozy. From bottle distillation information to in-depth cocktail histories and creative riff recipes by influential bartenders the world over, The Liquor Cabinet is the ideal app for anyone looking to shake, strain, and sip their own creations. The Liquor Cabinet’s ethos is that every bottle (and cocktail) has a story—Patrick, Peter, Sean, and Maxwell launched the app with the core classic cocktails, which form a strong foundation for creating an array of creative riffs. The app features important bottles to stock your bar, classic cocktails from the canon, and inventive riffs by influential bartenders across the world. Plus, the newly launched Variations feature shows how it’s possible to create unique recipes, once you’ve got the basics down.
