Drink responsibly!
Don’t drink and drive!
A hangover is the wrath of grapes!

None of these can, however, make you quit drinking. In that case, let’s make drinking fun and make it a cool way to spend time with your friends. Cocktails are not just for girls, especially if you’re the one doing all the mixing. You can make your cocktail night worth remembering, provided you don’t poison yourself with alcohol! J

Now, let’s see what we have in store for you:

1. Gin Gimmlet

This is an easy recipe any beginner can follow through to a successful result. Our ingredients are things you can easily get a hold of and it doesn’t take a Tom Cruise to mix it all up.

What you need:

1.25 ounces of gin

1 ounce of Rose’s lime juice

1 twisted lime

1 handful of ice

You pour your gin and lime juice into a shaker, add one twisted lime and a handful of ice. If you like, you can add even more ice, nothing is written in stone. J Close the shaker and mix the contents and then strain into a glass of your choice. Use a lime slice or a twisted lime peel as garnish.

2. White Russian

This cocktail is meant for those vodka fans that like the taste of unusual things mixed together

What you need:

1 ounce of vodka

1 ounce of coffee liqueur (brand is not so important)

A splash of light cream

1 handful of ice

Pour vodka, coffee liqueur and light cream into a stainless steel shaker and mix them together. Take a glass of your liking and fill it with ice cubes. Strain the mixture from the shaker over the ice. You can use cherries, coffee beans, cocoa or whipped cream as your cocktail decoration; it’s really up to you.

 

3. Piña Colada

This name always makes me remember all those crazy parties we used to have while I was living in Mexico. Spicy and fun, yet tropical and not too heavy. You might have to do some blending here. Mind you, there are different ways to make a Piña Colada but I’ll give you the one we used ‘cause it turned out great.

What you need:

1/2 cup of rum

1/2 cup of coconut cream

1/4 cup of coconut milk

1/4 cup of pineapple chunks

Ice cubes

Sliced pineapple for garnish (optional)

Maraschino cherry for garnish (optional)

You need to fill half of your blender with ice cubes. Pour your rum, coconut cream and coconut milk over. Add pieces of pineapple and blend until you get a mushy, pure-like mixture. Pour into a couple of tall glasses and decorate with slices of pineapple. Put the cherry on top. We added some vanilla ice cream but if you don’t have it, it’s not a big deal. Enjoy!

4. Godfather

If you’re craving for a true manly man’s cocktail, this might just be the choice for you. It’s easy to make but strong and flavory.

What you need:

1 1/2 ounces of Scotch whiskey

3/4 ounce of amaretto almond liqueur

Ice cubes

All you need to do is put a couple of ice cubes in a regular whiskey glass or a small shot glass. Pour it over with the precise amount of whiskey and amaretto. You can mix it together but we’ll leave that up to you. Fierce as the name itself, this is a drink usually not served in big portions.

 5. James Bond Cocktail

If you go to a club and order a James Bond cocktail, what you get might vary from one place to the other. Agent 007 drinks, in fact, different types of drinks throughout the series (both books and movies).
