Halloween is all about the gory, the spooky, and the scary – for some people. For those people, we have this really fantastic Halloween cocktail recipe – Potion de Muerto – or Potion of the Corpse or Dead. It’s even kinda creepy and scary looking in the glass, and will be a definite show stopper. The best part is that no one will have to know how simple it is to make these amazing Halloween drinks.
It’s that time of year again! The season when the ghouls, goblins, and ghosts make their appearance. Celebrate with a spooky Vampire Sangria cocktail that’s oh so easy to make.
This Halloween cocktail is perfect for your next get together with your blood-thirsty friends. This Vampire Sangria can be made in large batches, too. It’s a great twist on the traditional party punch.
There are some really fantastic flavor combinations that most people don’t consider. One of these is sweet and zesty. Not necessarily spicy like hot, but something that gives a little undercurrent of a different flavor. Ginger is fantastic for this. That’s where the inspiration for this amazing Ginger Watermelon Margarita recipe comes from. The complexity of the ginger and the watermelon play wonderfully together, and it gives a little sumtin-sumtin.
There are a few things that are more enjoyable in summer. Days are longer and more relaxed. People are out and about. It seems that we’re getting together with our friends more often. The farmer’s market is in full swing, and the berries are amazing.
The Sparkling Summer Solstice has an unusual ingredient for a mixed drink cocktail – cognac. Cognac is usually reserved for after dinner, but not any more. It’s busting out, baby! This is an amazing drink for dining al fresco or a brunch. It would also be a really lovely signature wedding cocktail.
There are a few things that just scream summer. Cute bathing suits. Hanging out by the pool. Family vacations. And milkshakes. This milkshake is special, though – it’s just for the grown ups. With a little bit of Crown Royal, this spiked milkshake recipe is sure to satisfy.
We’re doing an easy Very Vanilla Spiked Milkshake recipe, but you could change the flavors easily with a couple of simple swaps.
Summer is in full effect, and some days can be absolutely unbearable. What do you do when you want to indulge and imbibe a little, but you’re not necessarily looking for a frozen concoction? This copycat Mason Jar Sangria from Cabo Flats is just what the doctor ordered.
The best part of this Mason Jar Sangria is that you can make as much or as little as you want. No more making endless pitchers of sangria, or only making sangria when you’re having company. Now, the downfall is that like all sangrias, this still needs a little time to come together. But it’s so easy to make.
One of my favorite parts of summer is the great fresh fruit and veggies that are available. Is there anything better than berry season during the summer? I think not! With that being said, we want to lighten our cocktails up a little, too. Strawberry just goes so well with summer, and this Strawberry Cucumber Cooler is just the thing for Spring and Summer.
We are still in Spring after all…technically. This cocktail is great for a wedding or a baby shower, too.
One of the biggest parties of the year is Mardi Gras. It’s sort of the last hurrah before we go into Lent and the Easter season. We all know Mardi Gras goes on and on, but there’s one major weekend that leads into Fat Tuesday. THIS is the main time to indulge and imbibe. The Carnival Queen is the perfect Mardi Gras cocktail.
Carnival Queen is sweet and feminine, with a bit of a punch, thanks to the Crown Royal Regal Apple. While it’s an amazing Mardi Gras cocktail, it’s great for all times of the year, too.
It’s that time again, The time for all things lovey dovey and hearts galore. One of the things that has become synonymous with Valentine’s Day and romance is strawberries. Perhaps it’s because the first amazing crop of the fruit comes in during January and February? I don’t know. This delicious Strawberry Sunshine cocktail float is amazing for Valentine’s Day – or any time of the year.
Combining the deliciousness of strawberries with the bright flavors of lemonade and a little booze. Top with some ice cream, and this is a cocktail drink that anyone is sure to love. Have kiddies around? No problem! You can easily make this a mocktail by leaving out the alcohol.
The holidays are upon us, like RiGHT NOW!!! How did that even happen, and can I have November and December back? I have stuff to do that I need that time for. Like decorating my house and making cookies. Zoiks!! Maybe a Merry Minty Martini will help forget about all of that.
This Merry Minty Martini is so easy to make, and tastes like a holiday dessert. And since it’s low calorie, you don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in one of these delicious cocktails.
