March Rain Cocktail

March Rain Cocktail recipe: Tia Maria, Canton Ginger Liqueur, St. Germain, Casa Noble, lime juice

The March Rain Cocktail is something I created one rainy evening in March, hence the name. I started with sweet liqueurs, which is unusual for me since I generally don't love sweet cocktails, but it ended up not so sweet, with an even less sweet version that's just as tasty. I started with … [Read more...]

Branca Menta ‘Hopper

Branca Menta Hopper drink recipe: Branca Menta, Creme de Cacao, Tia Maria, Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur

The Branca Menta Hopper started out as a re-imagining of the classic Grasshopper recipe with the sample bottle of Branca Menta which the Fernet company had sent me. But by the time I finished developing the recipe, I wasn't sure how much it even resembled the original. You can make a … [Read more...]

Honey Vanilla Margarita

Honey Vanilla Margarita drink recipe: Casa Noble tequila, Licor 43, Patron Citronge, Lime Juice

The Honey Vanilla Margarita adds a hint of - you guessed it - honey and vanilla to your traditional margarita flavors. I came up with this one after receiving a sample bottle of Casa Noble Crystal white tequila with which to create a recipe for National Margarita Day, February 22. This was actually … [Read more...]

Honeydew-Ginger Martini {MixThatDrink Original}

Honeydew Ginger Martini Recipe: vodka, Midori, Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur, lemon juice, Angostura bitters

The Honeydew-Ginger Martini uses Midori and Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur for its main flavors of honeydew and ginger. I have a little confession to make: I don't like honeydew melons or anything that tastes like them, so I don't like for Midori to be the strongest note in any cocktail I'm … [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...]

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...]

Top 10 Thanksgiving cocktail recipes

Top 10 Thanksgiving cocktail recipes

The main rule of thumb for selecting Thanksgiving cocktails should be: does it make you want to curl up by a fire and sip? Then it's a potential Thanksgiving cocktail. If you want to get even more of a Thanksgiving or autumn feel, think about fall harvest and all the traditional foods of … [Read more...]

Caramel Candy {MixThatDrink Original}

Caramel Candy drink recipe - Cognac, Vanilla Liqueur, Caramel Infused Vodka, cream

The Caramel Candy cocktail centers on caramel vodka, and blends it with cream, vanilla and a little cognac for added mystique. It's very sweet and delicious, thanks to the vanilla liqueur and the sugar on the rim. At first, it hits you with the cognac, but you finish on the burnt vanilla flavor, and … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Pie Martini {MixThatDrink Original}

Pumpkin Pie Martini drink recipe - Vanilla Vodka, Creme de Cacao, Pumpkin Puree, Cream, Nutmeg

The Pumpkin Pie Martini is ideal for autumn, but delicious for any time. It blends the flavors of vanilla and white chocolate with pumpkin and nutmeg, and has a graham cracker rim just to finish off the flavor to perfection. This drink is obviously a wonderful dessert drink, but feel free to make … [Read more...]

Tropico Rum {MixThatDrink Original}

Tropical Rum drink recipe - Cascal Fresh Tropical, Malibu Coconut Rum

The Tropico Rum cocktail blends the flavors of mango and lime with coconut rum, and it's a match made in heaven.  We used the holiday edition of Malibu rum for the photos, so if you see little white flakes in the drink, that's coconut floating around like snow in a snow globe. The coconut and … [Read more...]

Delta Heat {MixThatDrink Original}

Delta Heat drink recipe - Cascal Crisp White, Brandy, Midori

The Delta Heat cocktail is pure Dixie charm, featuring notes of pear and magnolia - yes, magnolia - with honeydew. It comes out a bright cheerful chartreuse, so it's visually interesting, too. This is a fairly sweet drink. The Midori and soda take the edge off the brandy, while the brandy … [Read more...]

Chocolate Cherry Cha-Cha {MixThatDrink Original}

Chocolate Cherry Cha-Cha drink recipe: Malibu Rum, Chocolate Vodka, Cascal Ripe Rouge

The Chocolate Cherry Cha-Cha was the result of an hours' long recipe experimenting session with a friend. When we put coconut rum with chocolate and cherry flavors, we never expected it to taste uncannily like a chocolate covered cherry, but that's what happened. Somehow, the coconut flavor became a … [Read more...]
