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.)
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.
Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Velvet Falernum
Yuzu Juice and marmalade
Black Grapes
White Balsamic Vinegar

Elderflower Collins
This cocktail is perfect for outdoor sipping.
Ruffino Prosecco
St. Germain (so versatile for crafting any cocktail!)
Lime Juice
Rhubarb Bitters
Garnish with Lime

What is your favorite cocktail? I’d love to hear what you’re making/ordering this Spring!
