Cucumber Basil Margarita Recipe

Every had a margarita made with fresh basil and muddled cucumber? It probably doesn’t sound like anything that should ever be mixed, but it’s a surprisingly delicious twist on your every day marg. I thought of the cucumber basil margarita on my way home from work. A simple margarita with fresh muddled […]

Chocolate Martini Recipe

The chocolate martini is the ultimate dessert or after dinner martini. I’ll admit I’ve always been a huge fan. This is slightly modeled after my chocolate espresso martini, however it was a challenge to get it just right. Once you remove the coffee liqueur and espresso from my espresso martini recipe, […]

The Old Fashioned is probably my second favorite whiskey cocktail and number two go-to drink. The old fashioned is […]

Cucumber Infused Blueberry Martini Recipe

The cucumber infused blueberry martini was originally inspired by a drink Patty ordered from a steakhouse in Manchester called the Hanover Street Chophouse. It basically tasted like a cosmopolitan and antioxidant martini combined, but infused with fresh cucumber. The drink was good, but in my eyes a true blueberry martini shouldn’t have cranberry […]
