Dragon’s Horde

Dragon’s Horde

Recently I’ve been trying to create my own cocktails, as well as re-making the classics. Some are hit or miss, so luckily you don’t have to see all the stuff that isn’t deemed ‘good enough’. Luckily I think some of my creations are quite good,…

The Godfather

The Godfather

So I truthfully don’t consider this drink a cocktail, as there are only two ingredients. Technically it’s a mixed drink, although the fact that both of the liquids are alcohol can be mistaken for a cocktail. Actually, I could totally be wrong…call it whatever you…

Amaretto Sour

Amaretto Sour

An Amaretto Sour is a popular type of sour cocktail which uses amaretto (of course). This almond flavored liqueur used to be made from bitter almonds, hence the name, but some producers make it with the pits of stonefruit. Either way, I see it as…

5 Cocktails With Butterfly Pea Flowers

About a month ago I decided to buy a pack of butterfly pea flowers. I’ve always liked drinking the tea when I would visit Thailand, and knew about the color changing properties. However I had never used them for anything other than tea. I decided…

The Pelagic Cocktail

The Pelagic Cocktail

Yellow Bird

Two days ago I posted the Paloma, and yesterday I posted The Jungle Bird. The Yellow Bird is another fantastic bird named rum cocktail that makes use of a not so popular tiki ingredient: Galliano. This Italian herbal liqueur is primarily flavored by anise and…

The Jungle Bird

The Jungle Bird

The Jungle Bird is a tiki cocktail that is much easier to make than most. There are only 5 ingredients, and they are usually things most people have in their home bar. I’ve recently started to get more and more into tiki drinks after learning…

Paloma

Paloma

The Paloma cocktail is technically a mixed drink in that the traditional recipe only has two ingredients: tequila and Fresca (a grapefruit soda). That makes it basically the Mexican version of a rum and Coke or a vodka soda. However, today is Cinco de Mayo…

Mon Cheri

Mon Cheri

The Mon Cheri cocktail is, at its root, an Amarena Martini. I am a huge fan of Amarena cherries (more so than even real Maraschino) in drinks and was so happy my local store started carrying them. So on arriving home the first thing I…
