Cocktail Hour- Part 1

Cocktail Hour- Part 1

I put ‘Part 1’…I’m not positive there will be follow ups, but I’m pretty sure of it.

I want to host gatherings.  “Dinner parties”…informal ones though.  We have a ton of serveware that we received from our wedding and I love all of it!  I just can’t wait to start to entertain.

What’s one of the first parts of entertaining?  COCKTAILS!!

So, I’ve been looking up cocktail recipes and this is what I’ve found:

Currency Cocktail


2 oz. Exclusiv Berry Vodka
1 oz. Chambord
About 3 oz. Exclusiv Rose Moscato wine

Pour vodka into champagne flute. Add chambord and moscato. Stir. Garnish with raspberries, if desired.

Easy enough with just 3 ingredients and look how pretty it is!! Who knew a simple raspberry could be so elegant.

Fruit Cobbler


1 oz. PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur
1 oz. Blueberry Vodka
1 oz. lemon juice
0.5 oz. simple syrup
Club soda
Kiwi, strawberry and blueberry spear, for garnish

Combine all ingredients except club soda in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into an empty highball glass. Fill glass with ice and top with soda. Garnish with fruit spear. Makes 1 drink.

Sounds great for South Texas Summers!

Watermelon Cocktail with Scented Rosemary


Watermelon chunks
Lemon juice
1/4 cup of rum

In a blender add watermelon pieces, lemon juice and 1/4 cup of rum. 
Blend all together, chill (with rosemary sprig).
Pour blended chilled drink (discard stray rosemary sprigs) in serving glasses and garnish with rosemary sprig (if desired). 

Perfect for a BBQ!  Looks like I will have to start growing rosemary!

Do y’all have any cocktail recipes that you would recommend?
