9 simple and classic cocktails every adult should know how to make

Having a few good cocktail recipes in your back pocket is arguably the best accessory you can carry.

But overstocking your home bar and trying to learn a bunch of drinks all at once isn’t a good idea.

Below, veteran bartender Eamon Rockey lays out a lesson plan for your cocktail education. Here’s how to make nine classic drinks, all using a combination of these core ingredients and tools.
