Popular Mixed Drinks

Here's a very practical party tip concerning mixed drink recipes: Don't try to make them all. Depending upon the size of the party, choose 3-6 cocktails to make for your guests. Stock only what you need for these drinks, and stand a "drinks list" on the bar from which your guests can choose.


Fifteen of the most popular Martini Recipes, from the classic dry martini to the new "dessert" martinis like cherry, vanilla and chocolate martinis. Martini-making tips, too.


All Mojito recipes feature rum, lime, and mint leaves. Some feel that the original, Classic Mojito Recipe, with just a little sugar and soda water added, is still the best.

But for those that feel Mojitos benefit from spiced rum, a splash of juice or a bit of passion fruit, raspberry, or vanilla, we have More (and Better) Mojito Recipes.

Wine and Champagne

For a drink that is both rich and refreshing try one of the Red Wine Sangria recipes, prepared with brandy or champagne, and fruit, and left to meld in the refrigerator for a time. Just right for a barbecue.

Special occasion Champagne Cocktail recipes for many or a single drink.


Like parking in the driveway and driving in the parkway, blended margaritas are stirred, not prepared in the blender. Find recipes for both frozen and blended Margaritas, including Avocado and Strawberry Margaritas.

Brunch Drinks

What drinks to serve with brunch? Try these time-honored Classic Brunch Drinks like Bellini, Ramos Fizz, Brunch Punch and Mimosa. Or serve true Irish Coffee, an elegant after-dinner or brunch selection.

Blender Drinks

Our Blender Drink recipes include Strawberry Mimosa, Peach Delight, Mint Daiquiri, and Mississippi Mud.

(And let's not forget to include here the original 'frozen concoction that helps us hang on'-- Margaritas, above.)
