Gearing up for Sunday’s big game? We’re always happy to have an excuse to
gather with friends for a day-long session of eating and drinking, and with the
keg already ordered and the Bloody Mary bar mapped out, we’re ready to focus on
the food. What’s on our Super Bowl menu? From beer-spiked pretzels to
porter-braised pork, here’s what we’ll be making.

Wrap yourself in the warmth of this rich, cozy Scotch cocktail from Portland’s Multnomah Whiskey Library.
The Smoking Gun
Two notoriously assertive ingredients—Scotch and Fernet Branca—balance each other out in this flavorful after-dinner sipper.
The notoriously sea-salty, smoky bouquet of Islay Scotch is brought into the light with the addition of juicy-sweet elements like pear liqueur, fresh lemon juice and honey.
Named for the fictional heroine in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged, this cocktail combines Scotch with two Italian aperitifs to make one stunning sipper.
Smoky, bold Scotch gets mellowed out with sweet, herbal Lillet and Benedictine. A bit of apricot brandy and a dash of bitters balance everything out.
The earthy richness of mezcal is paired with bitter orange and chocolate, then a few drops of smoky Islay Scotch boost this cocktail’s ethereal aromatics.
This potent combo of Scotch, heavy cream and beer takes its name from the infamous Norse god of wisdom, war and poetry, Odin.

Last year, our inaugural Imbibe 75 Issue featured the likes of Kansas City’s Ryan Maybee as our Bartender of the Year, Alice Feiring as our Wine Person of the Year and Pouring Ribbons as our Cocktail Bar of the Year. There’s no magic formula, no competition, and the choices often seem daunting. But we like to think of this as an opportunity to take stock of what’s been happening in our world over the past year, who’s had a notable impact and who looks to have an intriguing vision for the future.
This year, our list travels around the world, with destinations in Australia and Mexico, our Cocktail Bar of the Year in San Diego and Bartender(s) of the Year in Houston, our Beer Person of the Year in Washington, D.C., and our Coffee Person of the Year in Portland, Oregon, to name a few. Each person and place on the list shines in a unique way, whether it’s our Wine Person of the Year, Patrick Cappiello, who’s become one of the most compelling (and energetic) voices in wine, or our Cocktail Bar of the Year, San Diego’s Polite Provisions, which has combined the talent of bartending powerhouse Erick Castro with the timeless concept of quality and hospitality in a city that’s quickly becoming a world-class cocktail destination.
There’s a lot to explore in the pages ahead, and we hope you’ll use this issue as inspiration for your own travels throughout the drinkscape—after all, you’ve got 75 reasons to start now.
