During the summer, it is always fun to sit outside with friends and enjoy some cocktails. Most of my friends love wine and will have a glass or 5 of that, but I am difficult. It's not that I don't like wine, I just have a super sensitive palate and maybe I'm a bit picky. Anyways, they drink wine and usually, I have a vodka based cocktail. My favorite is a mojito, and this year I have found a way to make it even better. How, you ask? I simply added some chocolate to the flavor. Whenever you want to make something taste better, all you have to do is add some chocolate to the equation. Except for steak, please do not add chocolate to steak and then blame me when it doesn't taste right. You would think that I wouldn't have to say that, but here we are. Maybe one day, I will write an article about that story but right now, the focus should be on their drink. If you like chocolate mint, this is the drink for you. Anyways, here is the long awaited (for at this paragraph) recipe:
Summer is in full swing and there's no better time to enjoy some unique cocktails. As the days get longer and the nights get shorter, sit back and enjoy these delightful drinks. Cocktails are a popular drink among Americans and are known to be a go to item at parties. I am personally a big fan of the "mojito" and love to drink one on a hot summer night. So take a look at these recipes below and get to work! You can thank me later!
Nothing quite helps kick off a night out like a nice cocktail, does it? And, nothing quite works as a better cocktail base than vodka, does it? Bartenders can tell you that vodka is considered to be a universal cocktail additive because of the fact that it doesn't have a distinct flavor of its own.
Losing weight can be difficult, especially when so many of our society's social gatherings revolve around eating and drinking. I rarely hang out with my friends without going somewhere to get food or drinks. So what do you do when you want to be social but you're on a diet? You don't have to stay at home or sip water as everyone else has fun. Instead, you can try these low calorie cocktails to order at the bar.
If you love Pokémon and are over 21, you've come to the right place; a list of cocktails for your pleasure that have just the right amount of nostalgia. What's more fun than taking a childhood pastime and finding some way to get drunk from it? As a 22-year-old, relating to these characters is difficult but turning them into alcoholic beverages was a blast. You don't have to be addicted to Pokémon Go to love these cocktails.
The Duck Inn is a fairly new yet celebrated spot on Chicago’s Near South Side. The restaurant features a menu with a heavy local focus, and the backyard patio is an unexpected delight. They also have some of the friendliest and most talented bartenders in the city, including a woman named Monika and the award-winning head bartender, Brandon (who doesn’t play into this story at all but still deserves a mention). On our budget, The Duck Inn is best reserved for special occasions, but we try to spend our money locally, and so end up there perhaps more often than we should.
Regional drinks are an interesting cultural phenomenon across the United States. The South has its bizarre Cheerwine, and my friends in Michigan will defend Faygo to the death. And we’re just talking about non-alcoholic drinks — for the purposes of this conversation, we’re not even touching on the craziness of limited edition, regional exclusive craft beers.
Too often, I find myself in my kitchen trying to recreate a cocktail from a bar or restaurant and it just straight-up misses the mark. No matter how closely I watch the bartender, or how much he or she was willing to share information about the craft as my drink was being prepared, some homemade replicas just fall flat. Too sweet, not enough dimension, not enough mouthfeel. At that point, there’s not much I can do to save it… so I simply go in another direction.
Enjoy the delicious taste of cocktails with ease. Instead of running to the liquor store and buying various types of alcohol to create your drinks, you should purchase these best premixed cocktails in a can. For large parties, there is no need to stress about acting as a bartender and thinking about how to make classic drinks for all your guests. These tasty cocktails are already made and can be bought in large packs to accommodate several people. After trying these premixed cocktails, you will never want to make cocktails again.
Champagne is often considered to be the pinnacle of class. It's the token drink of major celebrations and pairs well with almost anything you could want to serve up — including other drinks.
Dieting isn't easy, especially if you love to party and drink the night away. After all, if there's one thing that can kill a diet faster than a trip to an all you can eat buffet, it's drinking.
For those of us who drink, we usually either tend to go to a full extreme or not partake at all. There are a small number of people who actually use that weird little word some of us know as "moderation", and it's those people who tend to do hold themselves better. But in the end, we should just face the cold hard truth. If you are going to drink, then you should drink like a champion and be smart at the same time. And most people think "Oh! I get hangovers and whatnot when I drink" but trust me about this one, there is a way around most of this but we will get to that later. (It's most certainly worth the wait.)
