The idea of staying indoors for long periods of time or working from home is unfamiliar to many of us. You should first of all be grateful for the luxury of being quarantined at home. After that, try making something easy. Certainly anyone would not want to spend the duration of quarantine completely sober.
Here are some you can prepare at home. The liquor bottles you bought last weekend at Target probably already adorn your shelves.
1 dash of orange bitters, garnished with a lemon twist Mixed with 2 1/2 ounces of gin, 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth, and half ounce of dry vermouth
Your mom probably prefers her martini differently from yours, even though there are over a million available to make a martini. Martinis are traditionally made with gin, but you can use vodka instead. After that, we have to decide whether to shake or stir the drink, and next we have to choose a dry vermouth. The liquor you just poured is best stirred instead of shaken. Then decide if you want olives or lemons as a garnish. Perhaps you should do both? There’s no hurry.
A standard recipe calls for 3 ounces tequila, 2 ounces lime juice, 1 ounce simple syrup (optional), 1/2-1 tsp orange liqueur, and 2 tablespoons kosher salt or sugar (for the rim).
This is the perfect time to learn how to make a margarita if you are looking for easy alcoholic drinks you can make at home. There’s nothing like this drink for a party, beach day, or self-quarantine! Make sure that the salt or sugar sticks to the rim of your glass by rubbing it with lime juice. Once the salt or sugar is on the rim, the other ingredients can be added. In a separate glass, shake the other ingredients and add them to your glass.
The following ingredients should be added to your cocktail: 6 oz. light rum, 12 mint leaves or spearmint stalks, 6 tbsp. lime juice, 4 tbsp. sugar, club soda, lime slices garnished with lime slices
You can do this one right at home, as long as you don’t want to use a blender if you’re going the frozen route. You can make this cocktail recipe easily, since just throwing all your ingredients into a mixer and shaking it up well will do the trick. Add some slices of lime on top to finish. Simple and delicious.
One ounce of sweet vermouth, one or two dashes of bitters, an orange peel for moistening the rim, and cherries for garnishing.
With a classic Manhattan cocktail as our final M cocktail, we will wrap up this series of easy and comparatively inexpensive cocktail recipes. The liquor and bitters are simply shaken together, and then poured into the appropriate glass shape pictured above. You can make this easy alcoholic drink at home because all you have to do is shake the mixture. Orange peel is really just for flavoring your glass, but if you want to put some cherries and orange peel in there, go ahead.
Added sugar syrup, lime juice, 2 oz rum, garnished with a lime twist, 1 oz lime juice, 1 oz light rum
Having this in hand used to be a great drink. Unfortunately, it has been reduced to a sugary menace that leaves you with a splitting headache. Lime twists are garnished on daiquiris as they are shaken. Alternatively, you can just garnish with a wedge of lime.
Long Island Iced Tea
One ounce of gin, one ounce of white rum, one ounce of white tequila, half a teaspoon of triple sec, two tablespoons of lemon juice, and lemon wedges are garnished with.
Even though it is not for the fainthearted, you will get a hangover from this easy cocktail recipe. This hard iced tea is not the prettiest of drinks, but with just one you’ll stumble and dance on bar tables, and three you’ll get in the mood to dance. Know what you’re doing. Make your Long Island Iced Tea with shaken ingredients, Coca Cola, or even full-on power.
Four ounces of tomato juice, two dashes of Tabasco sauce, two teaspoons of horseradish, one teaspoon of celery salt, one teaspoon of black pepper, one teaspoon of smoked paprika, various garnish options: lime wedge, green olives, sprig of parsley, celery stalk, shrimp, cheeseburger, bacon, a shishkabob, anything goes!
As we said, we meant ‘easy’ in the sense that you could drink any of these cocktails if you wanted to. Since almost everyone seeks out the Bloody Mary, it’s safe to say that it’s considered a cocktail recipe that you’ll have to learn, even though it’s not necessarily an easy one. Afterward, you can just about garnish it with anything you want. All of these steps are really not that complicated. To make the perfect Bloody Mary, simply follow these steps.
Three ounces of ginger beer, a half lime, and a lime wheel garnish this classic cocktail
Do you mean that’s it? I agree. Our favorite Moscow Mule mugs shine with a coppery, almost rose-gold glow from their coppery exteriors. But how much are they really holding? Congratulations.
