Consolation Followed Yearning Cocktail

Consolation Followed Yearning Cocktail

One of the most popular bars, and a particular favorite of mine, in Lviv is called Mazaha. Named after one of the residents of the city, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (the founder of masochism) the bar has a masochism theme. Complete with whips and chains, you […]

Pink Spritz

Pink Spritz

I’m a huge fan of gin, so whenever I see a gin I haven’t tried before, I tend to give it a shot. Recently a bar I was at was having a promotion on Gordon’s Pink Gin and they had a few signature cocktails on […]

Sloe Gin Grapefruit

Sloe Gin Grapefruit

The Sloe Gin Grapefruit is a cocktail of my own invention (I think) that came about after I bought a bottle of sloe gin. I wrote another post about the Sloe Gin Fizz with instructions on how to make your own at home, but there […]

Mezcal Margarita

Mezcal Margarita

While it is standard that a margarita uses Tequila as the alcohol, why not try it with Mezcal. It is an alcohol also made from the agave plant (tequila only uses the blue agave) and it has a rich, smoky flavor. I personally feel it […]

Basil Cocktail

Basil Cocktail

Basil in a cocktail? What is this world coming to. Hear me out though, it may not be normal, but it definitely makes for a unique cocktail that people aren’t soon to forget. The combination of Basil, Citrus, and Tropical flavors make this Basil cocktail […]

Cable Car

Cable Car

The Cable Car is a fairly new cocktail on the scene, having been created in 1996 by Tony Abou-Ganim. It is a slight variation of The Sidecar, mainly changing out the Brandy for Spiced Rum. The best part about this drink, in my opinion, is […]

Malbaroni

Malbaroni

Malbaroni is a custom cocktail created at my favorite bar where I live. It is perfect on a warm summers afternoon relaxing with friends. While it has a lot of ingredients, it could be a special parties cocktail as that make a night all the […]

Parisian Fizz

Parisian Fizz

Champagne cocktails were wildly popular in the 1920’s and have recently been making quite the comeback. Parisian Fizz is part of the “fizz” family of cocktails, mainly those involving champagne.In truth, I feel good champagne is put to waste in cocktail form, so there is […]
