Most of the time when we roll our Mixology Dice, we don't use all of the ingredients. But in the hands of a skilled mixologist, like Christine Dionese, it's possible to create a drink that melds all of the flavors into a unique cocktail.
1 1/2 oz Whiskey
1 splash Royal Rose Organic Rose Simple Syrup + dab for glass rim
3/4 oz Carpano Antica Vermouth
2 oz fresh squeezed Valencia orange juice
5 red cherries
3" sprig fresh rosemary
1 small, sweet red chili with seeds chopped
1/4 tsp cracked rainbow peppercorn for glass rim
In a short, thin rocks glass, dab a small drop of Rose simple syrup over an inch of the glass rim and coat with cracked rainbow or black peppercorn. Set aside. In a mixing glass, gently muddle cherries, rosemary and chopped chili with seeds. To your mixing glass add whiskey and vermouth, stirring for 60 seconds. In a bar tin add a handful of ice, freshly squeezed orange juice and simple syrup. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Carefully strain and pour juice and simple into rimmed glass to avoid splash. Through a fine sieve, pour whiskey, vermouth and muddled ingredients into juice and simple, stir and enjoy!
Labor Day weekend is here, and my guess is that most people will be attending or hosting a BBQ or picnic of some sort. So what do you bring? Not the same old boring pasta salad this year. We're going to show you how to use your Foodie Dice to create a unique salad that with any luck, will be that dish that disappears before everyone even gets to try it. The best part of this method is that you might end up with a pasta or potato salad, or instead, a salad made with rice, millet, or quinoa. The possibilities are endless.
1 // ROLL
Roll your grain, herb, bonus ingredient, and summer veggie die. We rolled rice, dill, bacon, & tomato. If you roll polenta, you'll probably want to roll the grain die again.
2 // ROLL AGAIN
Roll the bonus ingredient and summer veggie dice again. We rolled lemon & zucchini. You can keep rolling as many times as you'd like to add ingredients.
3 // ASSEMBLE
Cook your grain or potatoes, add other ingredients, and dress the salad. Use these tips from Food52 for How to Make Pasta Salad Without a Recipe.

The key to making a good drink is a balance of flavors achieved by mixing basic elements—spirits, sugar, citrus, bitters, etc.—in the correct amounts. Mixology Dice™ make this easy, showing you exactly which dice to roll to make specific types of traditional drinks, and what ratios of ingredients to use. If you don't have the dice, this handy chart will still make it easy to learn how to make these drinks. Just choose an ingredient that you have on hand for each element, and mix your drink according to the instructions on the chart. Once you’ve learned the basics (or if you’re already a pro) the dice keep providing inspiration for creating tasty new drinks.
Whiskey Lime Rickey
A refreshing alternative to the Gin Rickey.
2 oz. whiskey
1 oz. lime juice (freshly squeezed)
lime slices (optional)
In a highball glass, combine whiskey, lime juice and lime slices if using. Add ice, top with club soda, and stir. Garnish with a fresh lime.

Grapefruit Honey Swizzle
The perfect drink on a hot day. Yeah, swizzle.
2 oz. brandy
1/2 oz. triple sec
1/2 oz. honey
1 oz. grapefruit juice (freshly squeezed)
4 dashes Angostura bitters
In a Collins glass, combine brandy, triple sec, honey, grapefruit juice, and bitters. Stir well with a bar spoon. Fill glass all the way with crushed or shaved ice. (A Lewis bag works well for crushing ice.) Swizzle until the glass frosts or you tire of swizzling, whichever occurs first. (A bar spoon will work just fine if you don't have a swizzle stick.) Top with more ice to fill. Top with another dash of bitters — or enough to cover the top. Garnish with a fresh slice of grapefruit.
