10 Cocktails to Try

10 Cocktails to Try

Those who know me well are aware that I’m not a big drinker. In fact, the only time that I drink alcohol is when someone offers to buy me something while we’re out, and an occasional glass of wine or champagne at a celebration. I prefer a neat whiskey over beer, and have had a bottle of red wine in the bottom of the pantry for several years. However, I do hold an appreciation for the art of the cocktail, so I thought I’d do a roundup of some of my favorites and some that I’d like to try. Enjoy!

A pretty and light whiskey cocktail, with lemon and blackberries!

It’s a drink?? It’s a cheesecake?? It has graham crackers?? What’s not to like!! Can you tell I am very excited by the thought of alcohol dessert

This is also a dessert beverage. I love apple pie, and this combines my two favorite spirits – vodka and whiskey! It also has a brown sugar rim, which sounds delicious. I wonder if it actually tastes like apple pie?

You all know that I’m a fan of anything with the word “sparkle” in it, and this is such a pretty drink that I absolutely had to include it. This also has champagne in it, which makes it fancy and classy when presenting it to your friends.

Although I’m not sure that this really counts as a cocktail, but the combination of champagne, citrus, and sorbet sounds really yummy. This would be great served at the end of a summer alfresco dinner.

Even the name sounds yummy! This is a perfect refreshing drink to enjoy with a late lunch, or a Sunday brunch, and it’s such a pretty color.

Blueberry mojito

I am not really big on rum, but I am big on anything that includes club soda and blueberries. This is really cute served in a mason jar. Remember to keep extra blueberries at hand for nibbling on!

Classic gin fizz

This is a drink that I had to add as a shout out to one of my best friends. Gin prefers vodka to gin, but this is a quick and fresh fizzy cocktail that is sure to please even the pickiest of drinkers.

Magic Perrier

This is the most simple drink on the list, and the only virgin cocktail that I thought was spectacular enough to add. Although I have doubts that it will turn out as pretty as this picture, just pour Perrier sparkling mineral water over a handful of candy floss for a beautiful and youth-friendly drink.

Very simple, and a stunning color, this cosmopolitan is perfect for a girls night or a bridal shower. I think this is the cutest drink, and who doesn’t like to feel like they may be drinking radioactive material? I hope you alcohol-explorers out there enjoyed this round up as much as I did! Remember to always drink in moderation, and never drink and drive!

Love, Vanessa.
