For those who like to party and have a good time, this smoothie is one great electrical drink that'll knock you off your feet when the time is right.
New Orleans Hurricane
This is the Classic N'awlins Hurricane. Drink through a straw from the bottom first. It starts out calm, but it gets stormy towards the end!
Spicy Bloody Mary Mix
My father-in-law first introduced me to this homemade bloody mary mix. It is very similar to what you'd buy in a store. Made as is, it is very spicy. You can customize it to your taste by cutting back on the pepper and hot sauce; I like about half the pepper and hot sauce. Enjoy this wonderful mix! It is so easy and much cheaper than buying pre-made mix.
Brandy Alexander Cocktail
The rich and creamy mixture of brandy and heavy cream make the brandy Alexander a sweet choice for an after-dinner drink.
Mai Tai Cocktail
This variation on the classic mai tai combines three kinds of rum with orgeat, orange liqueur, and lime juice for a taste of the Pacific islands!
Sit on the front porch in your rocking chair on a sultry afternoon and sip on one or two of these. The proper way to serve a mint julep is in a frozen silver goblet, but you can use glasses instead--just use the most elegant ones you have! You can make the syrup ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for whenever the julep mood strikes you.
Hot Toddy Cocktail
The hot toddy is a classic winter warmer. Truth be told, it's good any time of year and works particularly well if you're battling a cold.
