YLS 2L Libation – Presented By Steve Emmerich
• 10 parts very gingery ginger beer (Reed's "Strongest" works)
• 5 parts or less tequila
• 1 part bourbon (yes, bourbon and tequila)
• 2 parts lime juice
• 2 parts unsweetened, undiluted pure cranberry juice
• 1 part pure maple syrup
• Lots o' ice

If too strong, add small amounts of sparkling water or more ginger beer (to taste).
My daughter claims to have invented this libation on-the-fly, but she may be lying and may have learned it at the Harvard Mixology 1-day course she took.   She claims that certificate is the most important degree she's earned (she's now a 2L at Yale Law School).  So, I'll dub it "YLS 2L Libation".

Oaxaca Old Fashioned – Presented by Rachel Cecelia Schoening
• 2 oz mezcal*
• 1 orange peel
• 1 lemon peel
• 1/2 oz agave syrup
• 2-3 dashes Chuncho bitters 

*Montelobos Mezcal Joven and Del Maguey Vida are great entry point mezcales. El Buho and El Silencio Espadín are lovely for a splurge. If you already have Angostura Bitters you can substitute them for the chuncho bitters for a “less authentic” taste

Kir – Presented by Deidre Dawson
• 3 oz dry white wine
• 1/4 ounce of creme de cassis (black currant liqueur)
• 0-2 ice cubes (optional)

The Kir is probably one of the easiest drinks in the world to make. The only ingredients are about 3 oz dry white wine, and about 1/4 ounce of creme de cassis (black currant liqueur). Depending on how sweet you like the drink, you can add more or less cassis. This can be found at most liquor stores. To make the Kir, you simply pour the creme de cassis into you glass, then add the white wine.  I usually add one ice cube. Champagne can be used instead of white wine for a fancier drink, which is called a Kir Royale.  In this case, omit the  ice cube. 

Cucumber Quarantini – Presented by Michael Wilson
• 3 oz vodka
• 3 inch piece of cucumber, peeled and diced
• ½ lime, sliced
• 5 basil leaves
• ½ ounce simple syrup*

In a shaker muddle the cucumber until no large chunks remain.
Squeeze in the ½ lime and add to the shaker along with 4 leaves of basil. Muddle together.
To the shaker add in the simple syrup, vodka, and ice.
Put on the lid and shake vigorously until chilled.
Strain into a martini glass,
Cut thin slice of lime and float it on the top with the remaining basil leaf
Sip away!

* You can substitute the agave syrup from the Oaxaca Old Fashioned recipe if desired. You can make your own simple syrup from 1:1 ratio of sugar to water or substitute Splenda/sucralose or stevia for the sugar for low calorie syrup (but check the sugar to stevia/sucralose ratios)
