Friday Feature Cocktail: Lucky Double

This Friday I’m feeling in need of some luck. After the cold and wet weather of last weekend, I’m crossing my fingers (and hoping for luck) for some sunshine and springtime temps! I’m also hoping for some luck as my home state basketball team takes on the number 1 seed in the Tournament this Saturday night. So with luck in mind, today’s featured cocktail will be a Lucky Double!

Lucky Double 

  • 4 parts ABSOLUT® Mandrin Vodka
  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec
  • 4 Lemon Quarters

 Shake and strain into a chilled rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with lemon.

One Week To Go!

With one week to go until St. Patrick’s Day, it’s time to start planning what green beverages are going to be showing up at your festivities. While you could just buy some green cups and call it a day, where is the fun in that? There are lots of delicious green drinks for you to choose from (see my previous list of green cocktails from the other week here) but one of my favorite festive cocktails is the Irish Margarita:

  • 1.25 parts Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • .5 part Hiram Walker Triple Sec
  • 2 parts Margarita Mix
  • 1 part Water

Shake vigorously and strain into glass with ice.

Enjoy and Happy one week ’til St. Patrick’s Day!

National Margarita Day

Happy (almost) National Margarita Day! February 22 marks the great, national celebration of Margaritas, the sweet and tangy cocktail that everyone knows and loves.

Whether you like trying new recipes or sticking with the classic, we have a few suggestions certain to make your National Margarita Day a great one!

Maplerita

  • 2 parts Reposado Tequila
  • 2 parts Mama Walker’s Maple Bacon
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • .5 part simple syrup

One more summer cocktail…

In classic New England fashion the weather has drastically changed from just yesterday and it once again feels like the warm, humid mid-summer months outside. I am not one to complain about warm weather so I am going to whip myself up a nice summer cocktail (for possibly the last time) and enjoy a nice evening cocktail outside! Something light and fruity is definitely what I need to toast to summer one last time before fall moves in for good, so I’ll be enjoying a nice Citron Long Board!

Citron Long Board_21Citron Long Board

  • 2 parts ABSOLUT® Citron Vodka
  • 1 part Hiram Walker® Triple Sec
  • 1 part Cranberry Juice

Fill a chilled highball glass with ice cubes. Add ABSOLUT Citron and triple sec. Topup with cranberry juice. Garnish with lime.

Cheers to another night of summer 🙂

Friday Feature Cocktail: The Chicago Cocktail

I’m heading off to the Windy City tonight to spend the weekend with some friends. Since this will be my first time visiting Chicago, I plan to be an extreme tourist: Navy Pier, the Sears Tower (now known as the Willis Tower?) the Bean, you name it I plan on seeing it!

Okay, so in reality I only have one day for sightseeing so I may not get to everything, but I am very excited to explore a new city. This excitement about my trip has inspired me to make this week’s featured cocktail the Chicago Cocktail. Recipes for the Chicago Cocktail can vary, but below is one variation:

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass.

Enjoy!

Friday Feature Cocktail: The Sidecar

It’s a dreary Friday here at the office and I need a drink to brighten my mood. Unsure what I was in the mood for today, I asked my coworker what she would drink on a day like today and since I was pleased with her suggestion I am borrowing her idea for today’s featured cocktail- a classic sidecar.

Since it is once again chilly outside, the cognac will help to warm me up, and the citrus flavors from the Triple Sec and lemon juice, along with a nice sugar rim, will add some sweetness to the drab day.

Sidecar

  • 1 part Hiram Walker Triple Sec
  • 1 part Martell Cognac
  • 1 part fresh lemon juice

Shake over ice and serve in a chilled cocktail glass with a sugar rim.

Enjoy and happy weekend!
