Bachorette Party

The classic Martini, you can make this with many different vodkas or gins. Absolut is an entry level vodka for many people. Clean and able to stand up to the olive and vermouth, start here and then again spread out to other brands till you find the perfect mix of spirits and olives. We’ve included many other Gins and Vodkas to help you find your perfect martini. The fun part is in the testing! Try some of the flavored ones as well.

Amaretto Sours are great for those before dinner drinks. Smooth, sweet/sour and light they are the perfect drink to get the party started and keep it going. While there are some Amaretto's out there we still always reach for Amaretto de Saronna. Sometimes the classics are classics for a reason.

Angel's Kiss is a sweet layered drink that has been around since the 80's. Too fun but just one can go a long away.

Pretty as an ocean view, this drink is light and sweet, just in time for spring and summer. Great to look at it also works well as a punch.

Bacardi Cocktails were originally a Daiquiri served straight up just Rum and lime juice. As the drink became Americanized it included grenadine which gives it a sweeter taste and red color.

The Bay Breeze is an off shoot of all the drinks out of the 20’s and 30’s that are part of the Cap Codder family which is Vodka and Cranberry. With the Bay Breeze, it is a little Cranberry, Grapefruit juice and generous portion of Vodka. Cool and refreshing it is usually served in the summer months. This drink gained popularity again during the 1960 and has remained popular even today.

Bee's Knees was slang in the 20's for something new and fresh, this drink was mostly likely named for that saying. We used Raw Organic Orange Blossom Honey to make the honey syrup. There are different raw honeys and they will carry with them the flower flavor so experiment if you're a honey lover.

There have been whole blogs books and articles written on the Martini and if it should be shaken or stirred. Stirring is recommended for all drinks that do not contain fruit juice as it keeps the ice pieces created when shaking from diluting the drink. Martini people take their gin very seriously. So let’s break it down, Martinis = Gin and Vermouth. Modern Martinis use dry or white Vermouth. Now a days a dry Martini is one that has very little Vermouth, the dryer the smaller the portion of Vermouth to Gin, those with more Vermouth are wet. A dirty Martini is one where the brine from the olive jar is poured into the drink adding a salty taste. When you move into Vodka Martinis these are not true Martinis but are part of the drinks that are called Martinis or fill in the blank – tinis. Since we are more interested in what tasted good, a personal choice, we have a variety of Martinis including some that are tini’s called that more because of the glass they are served in as opposed to being a classic Martini. So have yours shaken or stirred, it’s up to you! Just enjoy. Like all spirit only drinks this is where you want to spend you dollars on the good stuff. Have a Gin tasting party with everyone bringing different brands and you’ll find that the tastes vary wildly. Have fun and bottoms up.

Ice cream desserts watch out, the Bitch Slap is the perfect way to end a great dinner.

This drink is strong enough to keep you going far into the night. This is a great drink for a late afternoon pool party. In a tall glass with lots of sparkle from the San Pellegrino this will be the hit of any summer party.

A creamy holiday cocktail that looks as pretty as it tastes.   is a yummy holiday drink.  Add a candy cane tied with a holiday ribbon for a festive presentation.  Cocktail glasses can be prepared/chilled in the fridge the day before the event.  The syrup will swirl better if both the glass and syrup are chilled.

Classic is good, Champagne Cocktail fits that description. Perfect for almost any celebration, easy to set up and serve. Classics are classics for a reason!

While it doesn't taste very strong this cocktails has quite the bite. The pear taste is so smooth you man not notice the kick! Enjoy it is the perfect drink for friends and food.

Very similar to a cosmo, the Cranberry Martini has an additional edge to it from the dry vermouth. Tart and tangy and not as sweet, we think this one might be a bit better.

Nothing says the holidays like a little sparkle!  We made a kickin' and added chocolate stars and real editable gold flakes.  (available on Amazon)  This is a fun girly drink and one of the few that when you finish the drink well you have to eat the chocolate stars.  Oh darn!  Holiday cocktails should be fun and that's just what this one is, fun.

Elegant and sophisticated in both looks and taste the is pretty amazing.  We started by using organic Dry Fly® Gin, a light clean gin with a smooth taste and just the barest hint of juniper.  This drink combines that with substituting the vermouth with another botanicals, Elderflower Liqueur.  We used Thatchers® which is also organic for one of the smoothest takes on a martini we've had in a while.

This cocktails if chock full of Citrus. Makes you feel like you're in the middle of a drink Florida commercial if they had alcohol in them! All the citrus juices and liqueurs blend well together and it’s a great late afternoon or early evening drink. Love this drink! Sweet and fun it hits all the flavor marks for a summer cocktail. We love the Raw Vanilla Liqueur, not the Schnapps, by Dr. McGillicuddy. It brings a great smoothness and rich flavor to the drink. Did we say we love it!

Fuzzy Navels popped up in the 80’s along with big hair bands and clubs that appealed to younger clientele that liked the sweet taste. Seen as a sorority girl drink it was light, fun and didn’t knock you out!

Light and sweet, Georgia Peach

A great classic cocktail of Rum, Maraschino Cherry Liqueur, key lime juice and grapefruit juice, this drink is the perfect summer drink. Time to go back to the 40's.

Hop and Skip is another dessert drink that will hit all the right notes when you just want to finish the evening with something sweet and right. Just the right amount of kick this drink will help you ease into the right frame of mind.

Margaritas have come a long way from the classic Tequila, Triple Sec and lime juice. There are many variations as well as serving options. Frozen, Rocks, Up, Salted or not are all part of the large group of recipes. A basic search could return 100’s of recipes all slightly different. At the core though remains Tequila and lime. Adding any number of fruits, switching out the liquors and lead to an endless variety. Some of our favorites, the classic Agave Margarita, the fall taste of the Italian Margarita or the dramatic kick of the Top Shelf Margarita are very drinkable. All of these drinks will get you started exploring the wonderful world of Margaritas and Tequilas. The fewer ingredients and liquors the better the Tequila needs to be for the best taste. Invented in the 1940’s it has, in all its permutations, remained a popular drink since then.

The drink's name is from Japanese Kamikaze (神風), meaning "divine wind". This drink became popular in the 80’s as a shot and cocktail that is served in a classic cocktail glass. The shots go down quick and smooth, so much so, that almost 30 years later they are still one of the most request bar shots.

Lemonade Lush is a lemon twist on a margarita. Less on the lime side and more on the sour lemon side this drink is a great counterpoint to the traditional margarita.

Long Island Iced Tea has disputed origins. Tea. However, numerous sources attribute the origin to one or both of two inventors in the 1970s or 1920s. The most believable is that Robert "Rosebud" Butt claims to have invented the drink as an entry in a contest to create a new mixed drink including Triple Sec, in 1972 while he worked at the Oak Beach Inn on Long Island, NY. Local rumors also ascribe the origin to either Butt or another bartender at the Old Beach Inn, Chris Bendicksen. It remains a kick sand in your face and get drunk kinda drink with 4 spirits and a cordial that make this drink about 22 proof when all is said and done. Back in the 20’s when many spirits were passed off as “tea” to avoid the stigma of drinking there were some similar drinks and even if they were a precursor to this drink it is more of a nod then a true twist on those drinks.

Nothing says summer like a Daiquiri! This Mango Daiquiri is not only fun but it has a wonderful taste that is light and fruity without being coy. The fresh key lime juice helps enhance the flavor of the mango and give it a nice tart back taste.

This is the drink that started it all. A group of friends vacationing on the Big Island of Hawaii decided to start this website. It was our love of cocktails or maybe just a few too many Mauna Kea Punches!

Basically a gin martini with Crème de Cassis, currant flavor, the Parisian's flavor is a little sweeter and fruitier. Great if you need something to take the edge off the gin taste.

rocks, we love winter pears and this cocktail is amazing.  The Pear Cinnamon Italian Soda, (purchased at World Market), pairs up with the liqueur and pear flavored Vodka with a hint of cinnamon.This could be one of those drinks that become your go to drink for both fall and winter!

Passion is when you blend Raspberry Vodka, Passion Fruit Juice, and Strawberry Liqueur then top with Prosecco. Great for any party or summer get together.

The Passion Fruit Punch and Peachy Keen are great summer drinks that play into the seasonal fruits and tastes of summer. Great around the pool or with a midday brunch these drinks bring of the best in food while tasting like the best that summer has to offer.

The creamier version of the Pink Lady for this recipe is thought to have been around since the 1920's. As most older drinks there are many versions this one uses both cream and an egg white. Once named on Esquire's list of the ten worst cocktails, most likely due to it's girly nature and color, it is still a great drink that has more kick then one would think.

We love a good Mojito and this is one of them. We used the 1883 Mojito syrup and fresh raspberries to really make this pop. Enjoy…

A great take on "Gin and Juice", the addition of Cointreau and Grenadine offset the tart of the fresh lemon and orange juice in the Red Lion. Great to look at and even better going down, it's one of our new favorites.

With Rose syrup from 1883 and Hibiscus Vodka this martini is as tasty as it is pretty. A delightful light tasting martini that will make you feel like a princess!

OMG, this is like drinking your favorite candy bar! Salted Caramel Martini is awesome if you you want something sweet and yummy. Vanilla Vodka, Frangelico and Kahlua along with some salted Caramel Syrup blend to perfection.

The Singapore Sling is a South-East Asian cocktail that was invented in the early 1900’s by Ngiam Tong Boon, a bartender working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel Singapore. Originally made with Gin, Cherry Heering, Bénédictine, and fresh pineapple juice, primarily from regional pineapples which have a different flavor and when shaken create a foamy top on the drink. While you don’t need fresh pineapple juice using 100% juice that is not canned gives this drink a much better taste. If you want to go all out the flavor of fresh pineapple is easy to make if you have a juicer. Most readily available pineapples are from Dole in Hawaii and are still very good but if you are a purist you can look for Sarawak pineapples which may be available at specialty produce houses or grocery stores like Fresh Market or Whole Foods.

This drink is all about sweet with an underlying tartness, much like a Southern Bride! This is a drink that is deceptively light, with 3oz of gin you need to be a little careful on how much you knock back.

The blend of dark rum, chocolate and honey make a warm cozy drink.  Great for after dinner or sipping with your pals it has enough taste to hold up to dessert as well.  This drink in one hand and a bowl of ice cream in the other... HEAVEN

This is a fun margarita with lots of flavor, using Patron Tequila and Orange Liqueur

The Union Jack is so fun with gin, sloe gin and grenadine. Pretty, bright and sween with very little mixer it is one to sip.

So fun and tasty, Vanilla Citrus Liqueur, Coconut Vodka and a touch of Elderflower Liqueur makes this a unique martini.

A very interesting the Volcano looking drink as it layers itself as you pour. Lots of fun for a brunch or baby shower it tastes great and looks really fun

An awesome after dinner drink, the White Russian is just a Black Russian with some cream added. Higher proof than you would think, it tends to be too rich and sweet for more than a couple but is a nice finish to a good dinner.

We don't know if Jerry Garcia drank these at Woodstock but I'm sure anyone would like this drink. Smooth and balanced with a nice little kick, this drink can turn into your favorite song.

A riff on the Cosmo, the Blood Orange Cosmo is a little less sweet with a more complex taste. Very enjoyable. Sweet and very fun, the Cosmalize is a Cosmo with Alize Gold. Very good and just as deadly! Lots of Citrus and Pineaple flavors make the Brassy Blond a good pool side drink. You can serve in a cocktail glass or over ice with a little extra pineapple juice if you'd like to cut down on the proof! Such a fun name, Playing Catch! The bitters keep it from being too sweet. Use a gin that is a little more fruity and not so much on the juniper side and the cocktail will come out great. A great drink for a party of any sort, the Champagne Passion is fruity and light. Very tropical! Great for a tropical themed bridal shower or wedding. A great drink for a party of any sort, the Champagne Tropical is fruity and light. Very tropical! Great for a tropical themed bridal shower, luau or wedding. Kahula and Cream made over with milk and some sparkle with the added Coca-Cola. A light weight cocktail that was popular in the 80's this a great cocktail for when you have a long night ahead of you. Peach Mango Mojito is a smooth and refreshing summer drink. This drink is perfect for a party or poolside on a hot afternoon.  It's the classic mojito with a fruity twist. A little harder to put together than your average Margarita, it has 3 layers so you make one at a time and hold in the freezer until you are ready to layer them . It is a fun way to celebrate the 4th with a Red White and Blue Margarita! A twist on the Dark and Stormy the Tropical Storm is fun and tasty with hints of pineapple and dark rum floats!
