Well Crafted Cocktails

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:

Moscow Mule
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.)

Ingredients:
Vodka (I prefer Belvedere or Grey Goose)
Ginger Beer (Fentiman’s is fantastic)
Lime Juice
Lime Garnish

Buddha’s Palm
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.
