Cognac Cocktails: Coffee and Tea

We are well versed in cognac when is comes to sangria, but when it comes to featuring the French brandy in a signature cocktail, we didn’t have many cocktails in our back pocket. Now we have two new, easy cognac cocktails, one made with iced tea and strawberries and the other with coffee.

Perfectly Festive Cocktails for Valentine’s Day

Whether you are hosting a girls’ night or spending an evening with someone special, celebrate Valentine’s Day with these easy cocktails that are delicious and festive. Plus, they’re way cheaper than going out for overpriced drinks at a super busy cocktail bar.


Winter Gin and Tonic

Spruced up with a charred orange juice instead of lime and a sprig of sage, this winter gin and tonic is the same refreshing drink that we all love, but with some warmer flavors for the winter months.


Cocktails with Benefits

Let’s be clear, we don’t drink cocktails for our health, but we would rather drink concoctions that are filled with fruit and vegetable juices rather than sugar-filled mixers. Check out these ideas from cookbook author Nicole Herft.


Amaro Grapefruit Sparkler

If you haven’t already, it’s time to get in the summer spirit with amaro. The Italian liqueur adds the perfect bitter-sweet to your sips, like this Amaro Grapefruit Sparkler.


Aperol Granita Cocktail

This recipe is based on the highly quaffable Italian aperitif made with Aperol and Prosecco garnished with a slice of orange. Aperol is very similar to Campari, but with a lower alcohol content and a slightly less bitter flavor.


Ginger Rum Fizz

With refreshing fizz, this cocktail is stirred with a ginger syrup and spiced rum. It’s perfectly simple and just what you need at the end of the week.

Blood Orange Punch

This blood orange punch is spiked with two kinds of rum and laced with cinnamon and fresh mint for a perfect balance of warm and fresh flavors.
