Ahh, cocktails. Drinks. Libation. An alcoholic drink consisting of one or more spirits and possibly other ingredients, such as fruit juices, soda, or water. Perhaps it could be a simple whisky coke, as I used to drink when I was first going to the bars as a young man. Or, it could be a fun and interesting combination that is tasty, beautiful, and meant to fire as many senses as possible. Cocktails are fun and this is a list of great classic cocktails and craft cocktails.
To me, these cocktails not only taste great, but they tell a story. There is a history in each one of those cocktails and drinking them is sharing in that heritage.
But, there are also some great cocktails that are just being made. I have made the RumChataTini and Barb’s Special Roux, which are fun ways to use the ingredients around me and maybe celebrate the season. There are a million different combinations that a person can try and so many can be delicious. Why not give them a try!
No matter what you are looking for in a drink, cocktails have an answer. Check out this lovely list of cocktails I have worked on over the years and find one that matches you! Give it a try and enjoy!
