The Fairest Cocktail of Them All

A Snow White cocktail that’s perfect for the holiday season! I have a confession. My regular readers now how much I adore wine and bourbon but if I really want to treat myself, I shake up a dessert cocktail. It’s my favorite! It’s kind of like a milkshake without all of the extra calories. I…

A Whole New World Cocktail

A delightful pomegranate champagne cocktail This is such a drinkable cocktail! I came up with this for Disney Dinners: Aladdin and was so pleased my guests’ reaction. It’s such a pretty drink with pomegranate arils bouncing around from the champagne bubbles and it’s actually fairly good for you! Pomegranate juice, lime juice, and ginger are all…

Strawberry Margaritas

I’m going to level with you here: this is the first time I’ve used my margaritas glasses for margaritas. I most often use them for fruit and yogurt at brunch. I’m just not a margarita person in general. I’d way rather have rum than tequila but I was determined to serve a delicious tequila cocktail…

Zero to Hero (Ouzito) Cocktail

With two shots of ouzo, this light and breezy cocktail will take you from Zero to Hero I want to get something straight right off the bat: I’m not even really an ouzo fan I love this cocktail. I did not reinvent the wheel here. Ouzo, which tastes like black licorice (stay with me!), is extremely…

Mai Tai

When I think Hawaiian cocktails, I think mai tai. The problem is, the classic mai tai is not what most people associate with a mai tai. The original is two ounces rum, one ounce lime juice, one half ounce orange syrup, one half ounce orange liqueur, and a mint sprig but when I think mai…

Jabberwocky

A refreshing spring cocktail that’s as beautiful as it is tasty! I planned on serving a classic Pimm’s Cup at Disney Dinners: Alice in Wonderland as a nod to the fact that Alice lives in Britain before she tumbles down to Wonderland. However, I was playing with ingredients one day, literally opening bottles of alcohol…

Singapore Sling

A sling is an old fashioned gin-based cocktail. Originally made with lemon juice, it’s more often served with pineapple juice nowadays. You could make this cocktail by the glass or a big pitcher for a party. I came up with this for Disney Dinners: Mulan. The gin complements the pineapple juice, making this refreshing and…

La Belle et la Bête

I tweaked a simple champagne cocktail for Disney Dinners: Beauty and the Beast. La Belle et la Bête is a mix of Chambord, a French mixed berry liqueur, and Veuve Clicquot, my favorite champagne. It’s French and fabulous and whimsical, thanks to the strawberry roses on the side. Shout out to my friend Rebecca for…

French 75

One of the best champagne cocktails I’ve ever had was the French 75 at Arnaud’s in New Orleans. (Read about my trip here.) I have long since wanted to recreate Arnaud’s French 75 and I think I’ve finally done it. This, my friends, is one hell of a cocktail. Simple syrup is easy to make…

Champagne Rose

Are you sick of me raving about Chambord? Because I am not sick of drinking it! This two-second champagne hack is sure to impress your friends and is better than any champagne cocktail I’ve ordered at a restaurant. I hope you love this rose-hued drink as much as I do! This may very well become my…
