The Mar-Vell

A delicious cranberry cocktail I can’t take any credit for the name. My sister-in-law Heather named this cocktail and it’s spot on! In the comic books, Mar-Vell is the original Captain Marvel. In the new MCU film Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell is Captain Marvel’s mentor. I came up with this dangerously delicious cocktail for my Captain Marvel dinner…

Mint Julep

A southern classic perfect for Derby Day What is more quintessentially southern than a mint julep? I am a bourbon lover through and through and just adore a refreshing mint julep on a warm day. I make mine with a mint simple syrup. Don’t balk if you’ve never made simple syrup before. It can be…

Dragon Fire

A strong vodka drink with a homemade raspberry mint ginger simple syrup Brace yourselves: Game of Thrones is coming and I for one could not be more excited! I give you Dragon Fire: an insanely delicious raspberry craft cocktail. When Kruto Vodka asked me to come up with a new recipe, I asked my friend Branden for help…

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…

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…

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…
