Quick & Easy Cocktails

We all love a great quickie. And if you say you don’t, you’re lying. Just get your head out of the gutter, homeboy. Because we mean quick and easy cocktail recipes. We know how it is. Maybe you had a long day at work and just want a simple cocktail or you’re tryna pregame before the Uber comes. Well you’re in the right place because Tipsy Bartender has easy cocktails you can make at home no matter the occasion. So whether you’re looking for easy vodka cocktails or a recipe that makes use of your nearly bare liquor cabinet, we gotchu, fam.


What do y’all deem as quick and easy?

We’re glad you asked, homeboy! We consider cocktail recipes that require minimum preparation as quick. Which rules out recipes like jello shots because those take a couple hours to set. And as for easy, these recipes can be made in 4 ingredients or less, but we tried to keep it under 3. Some of our easy cocktails use even less ingredients like the Cuba Libre because we know how it is sometimes. Quick, easy, simple, and delicious is just what you want or need. Nothing flashy.


So what can you make in 4 ingredients or less?

Oh, you don’t even know! Here at Tipsy Bartender, we serve the common man! So that means we’re ready to hit you with our easy cocktails. We already mentioned the Cuba Libre recipe, which is our favorite easy rum recipe. And because we love our fans and friends, we know y’all love a good Long Island. The problem is that Long Islands tend to have a butt load of ingredients, but we gotchu, fam! Not only is our Poor Man’s Long Island Iced Tea bussin’, it also only has 4 ingredients: vodka, gin, Lipton iced tea half & half, and cola! But don’t just take our word for it. We have plenty of other simple cocktails, especially those easy vodka cocktails, but don’t sleep on those easy tequila recipes.
