"I'm on a 24 hour soju diet. Sipping while I spill it; I encourage you to try it!" That's one thing I have in common with Lil Wayne: I love drinking! Straight or in a cocktail, I'll glug it down and have a good time. So, when someone told me about soju, I rubbed my palms together in anticipation.
Everyone likes a fresh mixed beverage every once and while (some of us like them more often than others), but what if we've been making our favorite classic drinks completely wrong this whole time? It honestly doesn't take a rocket scientist to know how to make a Martini or a Bloody Mary, but these are only two examples of the vast annals of wrongly-made cocktails. If you're going to make something (especially if you want it to taste good and be worthwhile), make it the right way and don't fall into the trap of making it your way. Your ways are wrong, trust me.
I’m proud of the fact that I’ve been drinking cocktails from teen to now—I never stopped when people took the mickey fin, I never gave up when I’d enter a bar and have to make my own up, I never gave up when people sniggered at my concoctions. I remember the days when cocktails only existed in the best-est of hotel bars.
Welcome back to another chapter in the Ginger Tea Reviews! Tea is my passion, and I am making it my goal to share my passion with the world.

Morning cocktails have gotten a bad reputation but morning drinking shouldn't be limited to holiday brunches. Before the Temperance Movement which began in the 1820s and picked-up steam until the 1930s, morning drinking was commonplace. Check out these cocktails which were designed to be enjoyed before noon.
St-Germain is one of the finest liqueurs out there that’s flavored with elderflowers. If you aren’t familiar what elderflowers are, they’re small, white starry flowers that only bloom through the spring and summer seasons. And while the flower is used in many foods and drinks in Europe, the U.S. finds the flower to be the best in the form of St-Germain. That’s why this liqueur has a delectable taste of floral notes from the elderflower. And St-Germain can be made into numerous delicious and appealing cocktails and drinks that can be enjoyed anytime of the year.
The best cocktails and drinks include bitters to enhance aroma and flavor. Bartenders are very creative when it comes to putting the right bitters in the right alcohol. And their top signature drinks feature amazing in taste, full in flavors, and sweet in aroma—we can't help but order another one.
So this year I became really enthralled with beer and alcohol. I've always been a drinker. I had my very first beer at 14. All through high school and my first couple years of college, I was mostly drinking to either get drunk or look cool. It wasn't until I started working in a restaurant that liquor, beer, and wine became very interesting to me. The ability to pair wines perfectly with food and tasting all different kinds of craft beer has become quite fascinating. I'm definitely a beer and bourbon kind of girl, so exploring these new flavors has been a quite fun. This year I even started to really enjoy wine. I tell people that I drink red wine with food and white wine to get a little tipsy! Some wines are taking a little longer for me to get used to like cabernets and chardonnays, but I'm trying them nonetheless. I've also taken a liking to scotch. Many people tell me it's because I like good bourbon and I believe them. This year I took my learning one step further and decided to try drinks I normally wouldn't try. Here are five drinks my friends and I made for parties that were a huge success!
When it comes to signature cocktails, there's a wide range of flavors, aromas, and even appearance, from the apple martini to the classic cosmo. And if you have your very own bar right at home, you can even whip up some great tasting cocktails. Like I said before, there's a wide variety of cocktails, and this including throwing in some bitters.
Bootleggers, frontiersmen, Southerners: These are the people you generally think of when you hear the word "moonshine." You might think of moonshine as an alcohol that was popular in the past. In that case, you would be surprised to find out that moonshine is sold at nearly every liquor store today.
Like perhaps most people, I'm really not a fan of most Christmas music. Traditional classics like "Deck the Halls" and "Jingle Bells" have grown stale to the point where the melodies are simply tiring, even surrounded by a hip new arrangement featuring the likes of Michael Bublé. I applaud attempts at writing new holiday tunes, but they can feel so commercial, you know? And in any case, you can't really write an instrumental Christmas tune. Without lyrics, how can you tell it's about Christmas at all?
