Quenching Your Thirst

Drinks are an essential element of any party. Any good party at least. We can’t imagine holding a soiree without offering our guests a selection of interesting, fun, and most importantly delicious drinks. If we are having an adult party, it is to be expected that we are offering adult beverages. Unfortunately, not everyone out there has bartending experience, so knowing what to serve might not be easy! Don’t worry though, we are here to give you a brief introduction to some timeless, classic cocktails.

The Martini: If you have seen a James Bond movie, you should already be familiar with the martini. When people think about the word ‘cocktail,’ a martini is probably what springs to mind. A basic martini is made by chilling gin or vodka over ice and adding vermouth. They can be shaken or stirred. Olives or lemon twists and standard garnishes. Well-made martinis poured into elegant martini glasses are sure to be a hit at your next party.

The Old Fashion: The favorite drink of one of the most suave characters ever to appear on television, one Don Draper. The old fashion is an excellent choice for people who prefer whisky over gin or vodka. Simple combine sugar, bitters, and club soda in a rocks glass and muddle. Stir in your favorite bourbon, add ice, and garnish with a lemon peel. Some alternative to the old fashion will have you add a slice or orange or a cherry before you muddle in initial ingredients. Feel free to experiment!

The Manhattan: If you are looking for a cocktail that is timeless, flavorful, and complex, the Manhattan may be the right choice. Recipes for the Manhattan can be traced back all the way to 1884. Mix rye in a pint glass with vermouth and bitters and ice. Cherries are a classic Manhattan garnish. They can be served in a coupe, martini glass, or rocks glass.
