To start this special holiday weekend off, we are going to recap the coverage we have done on our favorite liqueurs, and give you a handy dandy list ranked in order of importance so you can prioritize your home bar purchases!
Before we get started, some clarification: no, we are not about to make the deadly shot of the same name that is most often drunk by 20 year olds in Miami on spring break. This is the actual original cocktail — the shooters and the various brightly colored drinks you may be thinking of are all derivative.
Hello and happy TBT Classic Cocktail day here on The Woman At The Bar!
The weather has been inspiring us to make a lot of frozen drinks lately, and when it comes to ice cold frozen deliciousness, it is pretty hard to find something better than a frozen strawberry daiquiri–so we decided to make some!
Come inside and let us preach to you the gospel of the fresh and fruity adult slushy to cure all your ills.
We’ve been feeling rather fancy this week, so we decided to focus our TBT Classic Cocktail energy on a delicious-but-little-remembered classic cocktail that just so happens to include two of our very favorite things: bourbon, and sparking wine!
All aboard the train to Louisville for the Seelback Cocktail!
We wanted to throw a quick update up today to give you the chance to prep for tomorrow’s recipe. We will be doing a big batch 4th of July-themed cava sangria for tomorrow’s TBT classic cocktail, and we wanted to give you the ingredients you will need ahead of time so that if you want to make it for the 4th you will be ready to go. This recipe involves soaking fruit overnight, so this is your chance to get your ingredients beforehand.
We will post the actual recipe and all of the details tomorrow, but the ingredients you will need are:
Strawberries (1 box)
Blueberries (1-2 boxes)
Apples, Fuji or Gala are best (4)
2 bottles of Cava
You will need all of the fruit plus the brandy and triple sec for the overnight prep.
This amount of Cava will makes enough for about 5-8 people, depending on how much everyone plans to drink, so if you are having a larger or smaller event (or you anticipate some very thirsty friends) you can adjust accordingly.
There you have it! Are you as excited about this as we are? You should be — it is going to be epic.
For this week’s quickie cocktail we took one of the most basic drinks you can think of, and added just a smidge of Something Special to make it even better without making the recipe any more difficult to conquer.
Now that you know how to make your traditional margarita, it’s time to get a little more creative. We here are huge fans of some heat, and love a good spicy cocktail. Thankfully, the margarita is a perfect drink to add a little burn to, and so we have done just that!
Come inside and learn all of the secrets of the PJ Harvey!
It’s May 1st, everyone. That means we are in the final countdown to Cinco De Mayo. And we all know what that means: it’s time to get your margaritas in order.
So! Today we will be giving you our best traditional margarita recipe, as well as an alternative special of our very own so that you have time to prepare yourselves properly for Monday’s festivities. Let’s get down to it, everyone.
