The REAL Long Island Iced Tea

Vodka Martini Cocktail
Vodka replaces gin in this variation of the classic martini. Shake until ice cold and serve up in a chilled martini glass.
Al's Bloody Marys
Al was my stepdad, who was a wonderful man and a great cook! One of his specialties was his Bloody Mary, and no matter how many pitchers he prepared for company, they always wanted more. My only modification has been to add a bit of horseradish. This is a great brunch beverage, but various friends always ask if I'll please make 'Al's Bloodys' when they come for dinner.
A lemony syrup made by boiling lemon zest with lemon and sugar is the base for this delicious and refreshing hard lemonade with vodka.
Spicy Sparkling Cucumber Cocktail
This is a spicy yet cool and refreshing cocktail that is perfect for a hot summer day.
The cosmopolitan, typically referred to as the 'cosmo,' gained popularity during the 1990s when it was frequently mentioned on the television show Sex and the City. The combination of vodka, orange liqueur, lime juice, and cranberry juice have made it a timeless classic.
