Pumpkin Bourbon Spice Drink

Hello everyone!

I have a new drink recipe to share with you today!

It’s definitely what I would consider a ‘winter’ drink, maybe even a holiday drink if you will… which I am aware that the holidays are over, but we can pretend, yes?

You Need:
you need copy

-1 oz Bourbon (I used my go to: Knob Creek)
-1 oz Pumpkin Syrup
(Bring 1/2 Cup water, 1/2 Cup sugar, 3 TB of pure pumpkin, 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg to a boil. Allow to cool before using)
-1/2 oz cream (1/2 and 1/2 works as well)
– A shaker

Add all the ingredients to the shaker with some ice. Shake for about a minute (we want a foamy top!), then pour into a cocktail glass. I sprinkled mine with a bit of cinnamon for garnish.

Ginger Long Island

Hello hello!

New drink recipe today!
GINGERLONGISLAND_cover

The long island is definitely one of my favorite drinks. It’s baffling to think that so many things together can create such an unexpected flavor. My inspiration for this drink was ginger tea… which I love, so I decided to spice up the classic long island recipe!

You Need:
you need
-1oz Vodka
-1oz Gin
-1oz Tequila
-1oz White Rum
-1oz Triple Sec
-1oz Ginger Simple Syrup
(combine 1cup of water with 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of sliced, fresh ginger. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Allow the mixture to cool before straining into a container.)
-Juice from half a lemon
-Coke to fill

I love the simple twist this variation adds to a classic drink. Plus it’s perfect for summer!

Smashed Strawberry Daiquiri

Hey there!

So new thing on the blog today! I recently obtained my bar tending license, and mixology is something that I’m really interested in, so I’ve decided to start messing around and experimenting with some things and different types of drinks. I figure I may as well share some of these endeavors with all of you!

smashed Stawberry daiquiri

Daiquiris are a pretty great summer drink, and the strawberry one is definitely the most popular. They also usually come in a frozen form. For my daiquiri, I decided to leave out the frozen part, as well as incorporate fresh berries!
You Need:
you need
-1 1/2oz White Rum (I used Bacardi)
-1/4oz Simple Syrup
-Juice from 1/2 lime
-1-2 Strawberries
-Shaker & some ice

One:
smash
Cut the strawberries into smaller pieces and put them in the bottom of the glass you’re using. Use a muddler (or if you’re like me and don’t have a muddler, the back of a spoon) to smash up the strawberries a bit.

Two:
Put the remaining ingredients into a shaker with a few ice cubes. Shake for a minute or so, then strain into the glass on top of the strawberries. Done!
