Tales of the Cocktail kicks off today, and although I couldn't be there in person (I sadly had a work conflict), I feel like I'm still there in spirit! And this handy dandy illustrated guide to 30 cocktails, from Food Republic , will certainly help us mix up something to drink away the sadness of missing this epic event. Covering pretty much every classic you should have under your belt (and more), this list is as educational as it is lovely to look at! Enjoy! Illustration by Mike…
Another modern classic is the cosmopolitan which features citrus vodka (also known as vodka citron) and cranberry juice, along with a touch of triple sec (the official recipe calls for Cointreau, but any quality triple sec will do the job!) This cocktail should be served in a cocktail glass and can be garnished with a slice of lime to decorate.
The Espresso Martini is a variant of a classic vodka drink with a strong emphasis on caffeine. As the cocktail contains a shot of espresso, this also adds caffeine content to the drink which is sure to liven you up. The drink also features Kahlúa, a blend of coffee liqueur and rum. The Espresso Martini is served in a cocktail glass and presented with a garnish of coffee beans on top.
If you’re dreaming of warmer weather, take one sip of this Coconut Vodka Martini and you’ll be transported to a delicious tropical oasis. Plus, with just 4 ingredients required, this cocktail recipe is also super easy to make!
