If you or your guests are thirsty and need a cocktail, why not make it yourself? Here are some super popular cocktail recipes that you can make at home with ease.
Cocktail usually means any mixed beverage with at least one alcoholic ingredient. Additional ingredients may be sugar, water, honey, cream, milk, and various herbs. When the mixture contains only a distilled spirit and a mixer, it is a highball. It is a duo when it contains a distilled spirit and a liqueur, and it is a trio when it adds a mixer.
It is a great idea to mix your own drinks at home. Being a self-respecting home bartender is fun. You can mix drinks for yourself. You can make it for your mini summer parties. It is a great way to make your party special and memorable. And of course, homemade drinks are more cost-efficient than drinking out.
Mixing your own cocktail at home is not as hard as you might thought. As long as you try it successfully for the first time, you want to do it again and again. You just can not stop any more. So the key is to make sure you do it right with the first try.
