Sapphire Martini

This is one of those drinks that is a must know in my opinion. The Sapphire martini taste great, and like most blue cocktails is also pretty cool to show off. Another plus to this martini is the simplicity. It is gin based which adds a slight complexity to the flavor without adding too many…

The Elephants Fury

I discovered The Elephants Fury in a Sunset Kitchen article. Its birthplace is Oakland California and it is still served by Navi Kitchen in Emeryville, CA. This is a sophisticated recipe that serves 8 and will take a little time but creates a spicy,complex and delicious cocktail sure to impress in any small gathering. Glass:…

Pop Rockarita

The Pop Rockarita was made famous by Cocina 214, I was definitely slightly skeptical of the Pop Rock margarita combination at first. I guess  Pop Rocks and tequila were two things I hadn’t ever thought to put together. This drink uses Pop Rocks mixed in with the tequila, as well as to coat the rim…

Strawberry and Ginger Party Punch

This recipe is going to take a little more time and preperation than some of the drinks I’ve posted recently. However the end result is worth it and sure to impress! keep in mind I referred to this as a party punch  because the recipe is adapted to make about 6 drinks, not because it…

Tequila Basics

The history of tequila is both rich and dated, the origins stretch back to 250 – 300 AD.  Around this time period Aztecs were known to make a wine from the heart of agave plants know as ‘pulque’ or ‘agua miel’. Tequila has travelled a long way from its humble origins. Now there are laws…

Island Margarita

Originally this recipe was sourced by TY KU Sake, it is kind of unique in the use of sake to add a splash of coconut. Definitely a somewhat simple but interesting margarita to make. With that being said, let’s dive in! Glass: Margarita Method: shake and strain Ingredients: 2 oz Ty Ku Sake, 1 oz…

Mayan Mule

If you’re looking for a delicious drink made with tequila look no further. This is a far cry from the frozen artificial margaritas known and loved by so many ( for some reason). The tequila is supported VERY well by the other ingredients. It is definitely Worth a shot. Method: build and stir Glass: Collins…

Hot Mead Toddy

I’ve never mentioned it before but I LOVE mead. Partly due to me being a history nerd and partly due to the delicious honey taste. My favorite mead thus far is Lover’s mead, made by Honeymoon Mead and Cider in Bellingham, Washington. This is their trademark mead and is extremely natural and well made. That…

Midori Sour

The Midori Sour originated in the 1970’s and like many recipes there are different variations. Some call for sour mix but I’m not a huge fan of those, opting instead for fresh lemon to add the famous zing. For those who don’t know, Midori is a honeydew melon flavored liqueur. If you are not a…

Live and Let Die

I am Pretty sure this drink is named after the 8th James Bond movie,  while I’m not 100% sure about this cocktails history I give it a big thumbs up taste wise. From what I understand it originates in Jamaica and is featured at the Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay. However, you don’t have…
