It may not be Friday just yet, but we are already dreaming about the weekend—and homemade cocktails. If you feel like getting cozy with a hot toddy, homemade margarita, classic sidecar, or brunch-worthy Bloody Mary, keep reading. We have SO many cocktail recipes in our archives—a roundup of our favorites is a must. *Clink*
Do you ever crave ice cream when it’s really cold outside? (it’s currently snowing here.) Sometimes you just want a delicious, slushy drink—and this sweet and salty dog is just that.
Cosmopolitans feel very Sex and The City, don’t they? We’re completely into the idea of sipping on one of of these in front on the TV in our pajamas.
Tequila Cocktails (AKA Margaritas)
OK, we might as well admit it. We LOVE margaritas and our cocktail archive proves it. Haha. The most important thing to start with when making a margarita is the mix—and we really prefer the homemade kind. You only need three ingredients!
And, if you’ve never added a toasted coconut rim to a coconut margarita before … the time is now.
If you’ve been searching for the best piña colada recipe, look no further. And you can serve it INSIDE the pineapple!
If you love cinnamon and nutmeg, you have to try our spiced vanilla bean bushwacker. Hilarious name, but it’s such a treat.
We guarantee you’ve never had a mai tai like this one. Trust us, OK?
Our love for a good hot toddy is very strong. So much that we have several recipes we want you to try, like the one above (it’s made with hot honey), this apple cinnamon hot toddy, and our favorite one to enjoy around the holidays—cranberry.
Did someone say “boozy apple cider à la mode?” OK, just checking.
Emma’s favorite old fashioned recipe is called “smoke and cinnamon” (you’ll see why!) and it’s so perfect for a cold snowy night.
A cocktail for dessert? Yes, please. Here’s the recipe for an incredible mint julep milkshake.
If you love a good whiskey sour but want something a little different, this version only has three ingredients: bourbon, lemon juice, and homemade honey syrup.
Elsie’s favorite fall cocktail is equal parts apple cider and whiskey lemonade. Yum!
