Easy Cocktail Recipes. After my husband and I remodeled our outdated 1970s bar, we’ve been able to enjoy our bar area for Happy Hours. Soon, we began hosting our dinner guests in our bar area prior to serving dinner. We realized we didn’t have many of our own cocktail recipes and were relying on some of the classics from recipe books. In order to personalize our guests’ experiences at our bar, we designed some of our own tasty cocktail recipes.
Our bar area is pretty festive. We spent some time looking for bar stools that were both comfortable and attractive. I pulled out some framed art deco travel posters that I had used previously in an office at work. The prints are travel-based and fit well with our other decor. We love the LED wall shelving that showcases my husband’s scotch collection.
For a well-stocked bar, keep a few of the basics on hand. Vodka, gin, whiskey, and liqueur cordials along with fruit juices, bitters, and sodas can create a bevy of different cocktails. Garnish your cocktails with cocktail onions, pitted cherries, chunks of pineapple, thin apple slices, or thin slices or peels of citrus.
Since the holidays are approaching quickly, here’s a compilation of our current cocktails and non-alcoholic libations for your holiday planning, consumption and enjoyment. Happy Holidays to everyone!
