If there's two things I need to survive, they are coffee and liquor. Usually, those are separate things: morning coffee, evening cocktails. However, there is no hard and fast rule that says we can't enjoy two of the world's most wonderful things at the same time. Knowing all about liqueurs, the right ingredients, and the right proportions, you can make some incredible coffee flavored cocktails for any occasion. Just don't go trying to replace your morning wake-up coffee with cocktails—it's not generally a good idea to break out the liquor first thing in the morning.
It's 2018. It's no secret that we live in an age where drinks bring people together. We meet up in bars, pubs, and house parties and these beverages somehow facilitate adult human socialization... they're quite the catalyst. Naturally, we must appreciate the classics, but in doing so, we must also realize the room for innovation.
Planning a party? These eight drinks cover all five of the major liquors and all the classics with a couple new twists here and there. Here we go:
In need of some delicious and easy cocktails to make this summer? Below is a list of some simple favorites.
I love brandy, and I think it's criminally underrated as a sipping spirit as well as an ingredient in cocktails. As the latter, one of brandy's biggest strengths is its surprising adaptability. Its enticing aroma and oaky undertones hold up on their own in strong, simple cocktails like the Sidecar, but it can also be "dressed down," so to speak, to accommodate subtler flavors in softer drinks such as the Brandy Alexander.
If you have gotten past the confusion between whiskey and bourbon (spoiler, all bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon), and you understand that bourbon is always made in the U.S., stored in new charred oak barrels, and distilled to no more than 190 proof, then you are ready to expand your horizons and try some simple bourbon cocktail recipes.
Tequila is one of my all-time favorite spirits. It enjoys immense popularity across North America, but I think its strengths are underutilized in the United States. North of the border, tequila is best known for the Margarita, which is delicious, but almost never properly executed. There are a couple other popular tequila drinks like the Tequila Sunrise or (shudder) tequila shots, but these fail to take advantage of the spirit's true potential.
Ordering a drink is important business. Because it's not just a cocktail. It's a chance to channel your inner badass.
Cocktails are good companions for celebrating the arrival of summer and excellent companions for cooling down during hot days. Whether you decide to throw a summer party, make a barbecue in the backyard, or just relax a bit, a cocktail will help you enjoy the atmosphere you’ve created.
You deserve only the best quality of relaxation, so of course the cocktail in your hand should reflect that. Ideally, we would be able to make our cocktails with patience and love, paying close attention to every detail. We’re all unique individuals, after all, and all our taste buds demand something different.
There's something to be said about the elegance and decadence that comes with serving up a deluxe, artisan-style cocktail. It's a work of art that you can make with your own hands, and also enjoy in both flavor and aroma. Even visually, a craft cocktail proves itself to be a great thing to behold.
