Casino Royale

Casino Royale Cocktail recipe: gin, lemon, maraschino liqueur, orange bitters, egg yolk

The Casino Royale cocktail was probably named after the first James Bond novel, and it has the sort of ingredient list you expect from the drinks of the sixties. Along with gin, lemon juice and maraschino liqueur, it uses an egg yolk which adds a bit of thickness and froth to the drink. (As always, … [Read more...]

Chocolate Raspberry Martini

Chocolate Raspberry Martini Recipe: raspberry vodka and white creme de cacao

There are a number of Chocolate Raspberry Martini recipes out there. I've recently updated this one because I wasn't completely happy with it. For one thing, it was clear (calling for white creme de cacao and clear raspberry vodka), and the look of it didn't go with the flavors. This version adds … [Read more...]

Felicia Cocktail

Felicia cocktail recipe: apple vodka, cranberry juice

The Felicia cocktail combines apple vodka with cranberry juice. The taste is refreshingly dry for a fruity drink. This is a simple drink that appeals to most everyone. It's a nice choice for parties because it's so easy and so well-received, but keep in mind it's got three ounces of vodka in … [Read more...]

Gin Flourish {MixThatDrink Original}

Gin Flourish drink recipe: blackcurrant soda, gin, Patron Citronge

The Gin Flourish cocktail features notes of black currant, lemon and orange, blended together to form a flavor that's slightly sweet but distinctly citrus. Blackcurrant sodas are not readily available everywhere, so if you can't find one in your area, I've included a mix involving club soda and … [Read more...]

Frightleberry Murzenquest

Frightleberry Murzenquest drink recipe: vodka, Galliano, Cointreau, Angustora bitters, lime, maraschino

I love a cocktail with a memorable name, and the Frightleberry Murzenquest certainly fills that bill. Fortunately it also tastes good. It blends notes of orange, lime, cherry and vanilla with hints of spice. It's not a particularly sweet drink because it balances the flavors of sweet, sour and spicy … [Read more...]

Devon Air

Devon Air drink recipe: Applejack, gin, dry cider, grenadine

The Devon Air cocktail blends the apple brandy and apple cider with gin and grenadine. The taste is something like a crisp apple that's just barely sweet. This is an unexpectedly refreshing drink that's perfect for fall, but also any other time of the year. You don't need an expensive apple … [Read more...]

Blue Shoe

Blue Shoe mocktail recipe: blue Hawaiian Punch, white cranberry juice, 7-up

Unnaturally blue cocktails are always a hit. But what about the non-drinkers? I created the Blue Shoe cocktail so they too could enjoy a bright blue drink with no alcohol. My main ingredient is a blue variety of Hawaiian punch called Polar Blast, but if it's not available in your area, any blue … [Read more...]

Cherry Coketail

Cherry Coketail drink recipe: Coke, cherry juice, vanilla extract, lime

The Cherry Coketail is a mocktail that actually tastes better than a lot of the cocktails that feature cola. It blends cherry, vanilla and a touch of lime with your choice of regular, diet or any version of cola you want. If you have a jar of maraschino cherries on hand, you can just scoop some … [Read more...]

Bella Bellini

Bella Bellini mocktail recipe: peach puree, sparkling dry white grape juice, mineral water, lemon

The Bella Bellini is a non-alcoholic mocktail take on the traditional Bellini, which blends prosecco with peach puree. Now, the obvious way to make this one non-alcoholic is to replace the Prosecco with non-alcoholic sparkling cider. But that cider adds a distinct apple flavor to it, and I wanted to … [Read more...]
