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.
What is it about springtime that makes the cocktails so much more delicious? Maybe it's the fresh herbs, or the promise of warmer weather. Either way it's time to pick your poison for Easter this weekend and there are loads of recipe ideas to choose from. Easter always makes me think of mimosas and yummy fruit drinks, so a twist on the Orange Julius is one fun option. The Arancia Julius is a fresh breakfast-y beverage you'll want to try if you like those.
Sure, you could always blend in your favorite liquor with a Shamrock Shake (mmm, I may have to try that!), but you can also make some St. Patrick's Day themed cocktails for your party this weekend. We are having friends over for games so we're considering a few of these yummy-looking ideas.
