I may hail from Beer City U.S.A., but lately I’ve been experimenting more with fun cocktails. I love a warm, earthy red wine and will never turn down a lawnmower beer or a flight from a local brewery, but there’s something about crafting a flavorful and unexpected cocktail that has become a really fun and delicious hobby.
Here are my favorites:
By now, everyone has probably had a Moscow Mule. It is one of my favorites and a go-to order when out with friends. Hands down, way better than ordering a vodka soda. (You can find copper mugs at Home Goods for $9.99.)
Vodka (I prefer Belvedere or Grey Goose)
Ginger Beer (Fentiman’s is fantastic)
This cocktail is intense and absolutely incredible! I first ordered this at Hakkasan in Las Vegas and have recreated it a few times at home. It is a bit of an investment to get all the ingredients, but it is so delicious you won’t regret it.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Yuzu Juice and marmalade
White Balsamic Vinegar
This cocktail is perfect for outdoor sipping.
St. Germain (so versatile for crafting any cocktail!)
Garnish with Lime
What is your favorite cocktail? I’d love to hear what you’re making/ordering this Spring!
