Classic cocktails are good for any time, any place. These are usually simple cocktail recipes you might order whether you’re at a dive bar or a suit-and-tie event.
The difference here is, you’re not paying $30 for 3 ingredients. And you’re in full control of your proportions. Your Old Fashioned can be as strong or sweet as you want.
That’s right, you can perfect any classic cocktail from home with the over 200 recipes we’re offering here.
We’ve got the Gin and Tonic, the Manhattan, the Negroni, margaritas, mojitos and much more.
Here are a few ways we make these cocktails a little different.
Let’s take the Negroni as an example. A typical Negroni consists of gin, Campari and sweet vermouth.
Brian’s Negroni recipe takes a different approach. This one includes Bruto Americano and mezcal. Instead of an orange peel, this one uses grapefruit for a garnish.
Different cocktails can riff differently. Just look at how many different kinds of daiquiri there are on this massive list of cocktails.
Another example is the Ladies of Manhattan. You know the regular Manhattan featuring whiskey, vermouth and bitters? This one takes of the edge, adding raspberry and blood orange liqueur.
It can be tough to innovate with whiskey because it’s so complex. But that’s the beauty of trying many cocktail recipes and perfecting them over time.
In fact, pick any one of these and see how it might overlap with a few others. You might develop your own unique cocktail recipe with enough practice.
Now, the moment has arrived. Let’s get into our different classic gin cocktails, vodka cocktails, tequila cocktails, whiskey and rum cocktails this weekend.
Or you can make one of each. The beauty of making drinks at home is that it’s entirely up to you…
Mixologists, you all should try your hand at this Mezcal Negroni, 'cause it's magical.
