Jack’s Grand Ball

Jack's Grand Ball drink recipe featuring Jack Honey, Grand Marnier and Tia Maria.

The Jack's Grand Ball cocktail is a Mix That Drink original built around Jack Honey. To it, I added a touch of Tia Maria, Grand Marnier and a dash or two of Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate Bitters. The result is something like an orange mocha with strong hints of honey. The Aztec Chocolate … [Read more...]

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 with Casa Noble tequila, Licor 43, Patron Citronge and 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 with vodka, Midori, Domaine De Canton Ginger Liqueur, lemon juice and 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...]

Our favorite 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 with cognac, vanilla liqueur, caramel infused vodka and cream.

The Caramel Candy cocktail centers on Salted 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 … [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 with Malibu Mango, Malibu Coconut and lime.

The Tropico Rum cocktail blends Malibu Mango rum, Malibu Coconut Rum and lime, and it's a fantastic combination. A friend and I created this while re-stocking his bar, and it sure made all the effort worthwhile. The coconut and mango flavors blend seamlessly to create a smooth flavor. We … [Read more...]

Delta Heat {MixThatDrink Original}

Delta Heat drink recipe with Eppa SupraFruta White Sangria, brandy and Midori.

The Delta Heat cocktail is fruity and delicious, featuring notes of mango, peach and orange with honeydew. It comes out a bright cheerful chartreuse, so it's visually interesting, too. If you've never tried Eppa SupraFruta White Sangria, you're going to want to keep it on hand. It's a white … [Read more...]
