Signature Drink of 2019

My friends all know that if I could just drink my food, I would, and often do. I much prefer drinking to eating and am constantly finding new favorites. My current favorite is a lemon loaf Tazo tea with a bit of stevia and heavy cream. It's delightful, but I do recommend two teabags. My favorite cocktail is much simpler--just some pineapple juice with vodka in it. It's popular in Spain, where I taught for a semester, and I've always carried it with me, although I'll try almost any cocktail once.

Mermaid Tail Cocktail Glasses

If you haven't watched Iliza Schlesinger's bit about mermaids, you must; you'll die laughing. Then you can skip being a mermaid and just buy these mermaid tail cocktail glasses instead. The wine glasses are actually glasses within glasses, as you can see, because setting your mermaid tail in an upright position from which to drink would be super awkward and likely spill.

Very Vanilla

I don't know why people use "vanilla" to describe boring things. It's my all-time temptress flavor. I'll succumb to vanilla Oreos far sooner than the chocolate ones, and don't even get me started on Nilla Wafers! Did you know that there's a martini mde with Nilla Wafers? It's really just amaretto and vanilla vodka, but could you imagine lining your glass with wafter crumbs? Mmmm... It supposedly tastes just like Nilla Wafers.

The Grossest Yet Most Delicious Cocktails

Gravy fat and turkey stock in a cocktail? Gin with celery syrup and cilantro? Ugh, I can't stand cilantro (the soap herb!) and I didn't even know there was a such thing as celery syrup. These surprise ingredients are supposedly the makers of exquisite cocktails that only sound weird and gross and terrible but are actually amazing and enjoyable. 

Keurig for Cocktails

If you've ever remarked that there should be a cocktail machine similar to your Keurig for brewing up drinks instead of coffee, tea or cocoa, you're in luck. The Drinkworks Home Bar is now at your service, offering a range of beers and cocktails for all of your single-serve needs. If you're wondering whether or not each pod is totally comprehensive, containing every ingredient for the cocktail of your choice... the answer is yes! Everything is pre-measured, with premium ingredients in each pot. Want a margarita? Pop the pod in.

Cooking Ingredient Cocktails

This is one of the best ways to create cocktails for your holiday events: use the ingredients you already have on hand for the meal! It's a great way to cut down on spending and waste while still managing to get a few great cocktails on the menu. From cranberries to apple cider, butternut squash (for real!) to lemons and limes, there are several items you will probably already have on hand that will make excellent drinks for Thanksgiving.
