Cocktails

Rum and Coke

Rum and Coke

A Rum and Coke is an incredibly simple cocktail yet it’s both refreshing and delicious. The drink’s a few ounces of rum mixed with a satisfying layer of coke, wrapped in fresh ice. Yes, it’s not fancy, it’s not sophisticated, but it certainly gets the job done!

Whiskey and Coke

Whiskey and Coke

The Whiskey and Coke is a well-deserved improvement over the Rum and Coke. It’s very easy-to-make, timeless, and sweetened to perfection. So don’t be afraid to try simple! Sometimes it’s all you need.

Old Pal

Old Pal

The Old Pal is a classic spirit-forward cocktail with a unique and sophisticated flavor. The cocktail balances sweet, dry, and bitter ingredients to perfection by combining bourbon, dry vermouth, and Italian bitter liqueur in a stellar fashion.

Aperol Negroni

Aperol Negroni

If you’re hesitant about whether you like the Aperol Negroni at first, don’t be. Let the cocktail sit for a few minutes, so the flavors and aromas settle. Then take a few more sips and wait. Soon you’ll start to taste the various flavors each ingredient adds and respect the drink for what it is. A quick trip to Italy in a blazon-orange glass.

The Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead

The Grateful Dead is a must-try drink with a delicious mind of its own: tequila, vodka, rum, gin, orange/raspberry liqueurs, and sweet/sour mix. But be warned, on any given night…once…twice…never thrice!

The Negroni

The Negroni

The Negroni is a classic “spirit-forward” Italian cocktail. The drink’s a popular apéritif: a drink that’s served before a meal to help stimulate an appetite. It’s quite easy to make, you’ll need three basic ingredients: equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth…finish with an orange garnish. 

The French 75

The French 75

The French 75 is the perfect combination of gin, freshly-squeezed lemon juice, and simple syrup…nicely topped with a bubbly layer of champagne. The cocktail’s surprisingly similar to the Tom Collins, except the French 75 replaces club soda with sparkling wine.

Black Russian

Black Russian

The Black Russian cocktail’s sweet and simple. There’s not much to the drink, just a 2:1 ratio of vodka to coffee liqueur – draped over a bed of fresh ice. The cocktail takes me back to simpler times: childishly nestled on the couch watching classic movies with my grandfather…as he slowly sipped away…

Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini

The Espresso Martini is a delicious combination of morning and afternoon. Technically, it’s not a martini since it doesn’t contain either gin or vermouth. But it’s respectable enough to keep its name. The Espresso Martini calls for vodka, espresso, coffee liqueur, and crème de cacao.

White Russian

White Russian

You’ll only need three ingredients to make a White Russian cocktail: vodka, coffee liqueur, and heavy cream. The cocktail’s simple, sweet, and potent with ingredients that mingle perfectly in the glass.

Classic Manhattan

Classic Manhattan

The Manhattan was once the most popular cocktail in the world. Since then the cocktail’s dominance has faded, but it’s making a come back. You can use rye, bourbon, or blended whiskey: add sweet vermouth, and Angostura bitters – stir – then garnish with a cherry. That’s a Classic Manhattan…perfect.

Moscow Mule

Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule’s one of the easiest and most refreshing cocktails you can make! It’s a deliciously simple drink that’s perfectly suited for any occasion. The Mule offers a sharp ginger taste, dash of lime, and a reliable base of vodka served in a traditional copper mug.
