Simone Goldberg’s winter daiquiri layers bourbon with bitter Aperol, fresh lemon juice, spicy Ancho Reyes and aromatic sage. “Kind of a Boulevardier meets an herbal Mai Tai,” she says—or just Christmas on the beach.

  • 3/4 ounce lemon juice
  • 3/4 ounce Ancho Reyes

  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 2 pineapple chunks, muddled
  • 1 sage leaf, muddled

Garnish: sage leaf
