The Moscow Mule is Back Just in Time for Christmas!

Yes, the Moscow Mule is back! And just in time for Christmas revelry. We love the idea of setting up a Christmas drink station  to spread holiday cheer. And letting our guest serve themselves would free up our designated bartenders so they too could enjoy the festivities. The hardest part about making the Moscow Mule is finding beautiful affordable mugs. So we were thrilled to be find these copper mugs. We love them all but are particularly enamored with the hammered copper mugs and think this Moscow Mule Gift Set would make a great stocking stuffer and holiday gift exchange present!

Cocktails are Back! Trending Cocktail Recipes

Many moons ago, back when 18 was the drinking age in Wisconsin, my girlfriends and I would pile into a car and make the hour long drive across the Illinois Wisconsin state border to sip on Tom Collins and Tequila Sunrise cocktails, usually adorned with cute umbrellas or fun stirrers. But by the time I graduated from college, wine had become the “it” beverage and very few of my cohorts knew how to mix even the simplest cocktail. Now that cocktails are once again the drink of choice, many of us early boomers need a refresher. Obviously, today you can google the name of any drink and will receive pages and pages of recipes. The challenge becomes which recipe is the best.  Well Drizzly has gathered the best of the best recipes together in one easy location and tells you exactly what you need for each drink.  Here is the kicker >> once you decide on tonight's cocktail of choice, you can have all the ingredients delivered right to your front door within an hour.  Yes, you read that correctly. So if you have already had a drink or two, no need to drive!!!! All the ingredients you need for that B52 shot you have been craving (or whatever else has tickled your fancy) can be delivered to your door within an hour!!!!  Continue Reading →

Looking for the newest craze in signature cocktails?  Think  Iced Tea Cocktails!  Tea cocktails are innovative, refreshing, and healthier than other high-caloric options.  Best yet, tea cocktails, one of life’s simplest pleasures, are  not only easy to prepare, they are sure to delight family and friends.  They work equally well served at a barbeque, poolside, ladies night in, dinner party, or even fundraising gala.

The White Tea Smash created by Kevin Burke of Colt & Gray is seriously amazing.  (See recipe below.)  This tea tonic uses fresh herbs, lemon, honey, vodka, and Teatulia White Tea.   Another one of our favorite drinks is the Green Tea Mint Julep.

The Green Tea Mint Julep contains Teatulia Green Tea, whiskey, simple syrup, lemon, and mint.  It is the perfect drink for a hot summer night or your next A Day at the Races – Horse Racing Theme Party.
