Now that it's 2020, celebrating a new decade as a reprise of the roaring twenties is all the rage. While that really doesn't bode well in some respects, it's fun to revisit the drinks of yesteryear and either make them as they were or try new twists on everything from the Old Fashioned to the Bee's Knees.
When you consider the drinks of today against those banned during Prohibition, you have to wonder what people of the 1920s might have thought of today's drinks. Maybe they wouldn't have supported bootlegging if they'd known what kinds of wild concoctions we'd come up with. Bacon? In cocktails?
When we hear the word herbaceous, we often assume it means that something will be savory and not sweet at all. I've been learning the opposite through exploring different indie perfume companies and now I've learned that herb-infused drinks can be pretty sweet, too!
Fellow drinkers, you have less than two days to finalize your plans for New Year's Eve, which includes your choice of bubbly or other spirits to get into the New Year's spirit! Depending on what you already have going on, you may not even need to make new plans: many restaurants and venues are providing a toast complete with champagne. But if you plan on celebrating at home or with company in another home, you might want to get creative and get your bottles today.
The joke is that it's always five o'clock somewhere, and drinking with breakfast--or at least brunch--is in fashion, especially if it incorporates juice and is suddenly a breakfast drink. Mimosas, screwdrivers and bloody marys have never gone out of style, but now people are actually putting their booze IN their breakfast food.
Now that October is gone, many people might consider it the end of pumpkin spice everything, but not so! Pumpkins are still very much in season and perfect for all of our drinking needs, and if you don't believe me, grab a pumpkin spice cold brew coffee, mix in a bit of bourbon and enjoy!
Whether you follow the legend of Kore or Persephone (who are essentially the same person but with vastly different stories, depending on which one you think is most accurate!), you can't deny that pomegranates are a lovely symbol of this time of year. Why not celebrate your darkness and surviving Hades on Earth with a pomegranate cocktail or two before Mecury goes into Retrogade?
Okay, I get that it's too early for Halloween for a lot of people. In my house, September is pretty much Halloween Eve, the entire month of October is Halloween and we wear a different costume every day. So if you're not into the theme, it's okay, these are great drinks for any time--just know that I definitely have these in mind for October entertaining!
Summertime is the perfect time to mix up some sweet, fruity drinks, whether they're for a group of friends and family or just for yourself! If you're searching for some new recipes to try, Liquor.com always has something interesting to test out, no matter what the season is. This list of 11 Essentail Cocktails for summer is just what you need for the perfect July get together.
Independence Day isn't one of my favorite holidays, but I do love to spend time with my family, have a rare beer on tap at the park (although ours is flooded this year and we probably won't go elsewhere) and watch the fireworks from afar. My husband loves the whole shebang--grilling meat, shooting off his own fireworks, etc.--and while that's not my cup of tea, a good Fourth of July cocktail certainly is!
