Former Gourmet magazine editor in chief Ruth Reichl has a personal blog that usually just makes me question my life decisions. (Why haven't I written a book? Why am I not traveling the world eating interesting ethnic foods? Couldn't I, at the very least, go to the farmers' market and buy some effing tatsoi on occasion?) But today, Reichl posted something I can totally access: A $16 drinking game! With accessories!

The options are:

Alcohols: vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and whiskey

Dry or Sweets: vermouth, triple sec, grenadine, bitters, orgeat syrup, simple syrup

Sodas: cola, tonic, club, lemon-lime, ginger ale

Fruit Juices: orange, cranberry, lemon, lime, grapefruit, pomegranate

Garnishes: lime slice, lemon twist, pearl onion, olive, cherry, orange twist

Herbs & Spices: basil sprig, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, mint sprig, sugar

Methods: shaken, stirred, poured, blended

Barware: double old fashioned, martini glass, highball, collins


WHERE TO BUY: Get the basic version for $16 from Leaf Cutter Designs or a version with a shaker included for $34 from Uncommon Goods.
