Amaretto Sours are great for those before dinner drinks. Smooth, sweet/sour and light they are the perfect drink to get the party started and keep it going. While there are some Amaretto's out there we still always reach for Amaretto de Saronna. Sometimes the classics are classics for a reason.

Two of my favorites Champange and Vodka. Just a tip to make this the best tasting brunch drink, chill the Champagne in the freezer before mixing your while the chilling over ice works it introduces water into the drink through the shards of ice!

Pretty as an ocean view, this drink is light and sweet, just in time for spring and summer. Great to look at it also works well as a punch.

The Bay Breeze is an off shoot of all the drinks out of the 20’s and 30’s that are part of the Cap Codder family which is Vodka and Cranberry. With the Bay Breeze, it is a little Cranberry, Grapefruit juice and generous portion of Vodka. Cool and refreshing it is usually served in the summer months. This drink gained popularity again during the 1960 and has remained popular even today.

Legend has it the Bellini was invented sometime between 1934 and 1948 by Giuseppe Cipriani, founder of Harry's Bar in Venice, Italy. The beautiful color inspired Cipriani to name the drink Bellini after the robe of a saint in a painting by 15th-century Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini. Light, clean and very easy to drink this is the perfect cocktail for brunch, early evening parties, light social events and for light drinkers.

Some times you just need a bloody good drink! Blood Orange Mojito fills that spot and then some. Try it out and you may never go back!

Blue Hawaiian gets its name from the beautiful blue of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii. Created by Harry Yee at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in 1957 when a sales rep asked him to make a drink using Blue Curaçao liqueur. Curacao is an orange based liqueur that is often colored blue or orange and used extensively in tropical themed drinks. It does have a tie to the Elvis movie “Blue Hawaii” but it is fairly loose in nature. This drink, and like many like it, were an off shoot of the 60’s love of all things Hawaiian and tiki. Having sat at the pool bar at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and looked out over Waikiki Beach, I can see where they got the name.

Many drinks are an offshoot of the Gin and Vodka drinks out of the 20’s and 30’s that are part of the Cape Codder family which is Vodka and Cranberry. There are many variations on this drink like the Bay Breeze, Sea Breeze, Greyhound… Any way you look at it the drink reminds you of summer by the sea!

Classic is good, Champagne Cocktail fits that description. Perfect for almost any celebration, easy to set up and serve. Classics are classics for a reason!

The Champagne Pomegranate Cocktail is a unique blend of Vodka, Champagne and Pama®.  Add in a few Pomegranate seeds for flavor and color and you have a fun cocktail that sparkles.  To keep the proof lower you can leave out the Vodka and it still tastes great and you can drink a few more before you hit your limit! Perfect for the occasion where a lower proof is needed like, brunch or a afternoon get together. The Citrus Brunch is a light pretty drink that hits all the high citrus notes with the sparkle of Champagne.

Fuzzy Navels popped up in the 80’s along with big hair bands and clubs that appealed to younger clientele that liked the sweet taste. Seen as a sorority girl drink it was light, fun and didn’t knock you out!

Light and sweet, Georgia Peach Fun to look at this Kiwi Spring Lemonade has citrus Vodka and Chartreuse for a herbal twist on the classic lemonade. Not only does it make it more interesting but it keeps it from becoming too sweet!

Lemonade Lush is a lemon twist on a margarita. Less on the lime side and more on the sour lemon side this drink is a great counterpoint to the traditional margarita.

Passion is when you blend Raspberry Vodka, Passion Fruit Juice, and Strawberry Liqueur then top with Prosecco. Great for any party or summer get together.

Daiquirí became popular in the 1940s. Wartime rationing made whiskey, vodka, etc., hard to come by, yet because of Roosevelt's Good Neighbor policy (which opened up trade and travel relations with Latin America, Cuba and the Caribbean), rum was easily obtainable. The Good Neighbor Policy (also known as 'The Pan-American program'), helped make Latin America seem fashionable. Consequently, rum-based drinks (once frowned upon as being the domain of sailors and down-and-outs), also became fashionable, and the Daiquirí saw a tremendous rise in popularity in the US. Originally served over cracked ice, Bacardi Rum, sugar and fresh lime juice it is now served frozen with a variety of different flavors. Two of our favorites are the lime and peach are included as well. Other fruits that translate well are peach, strawberries, raspberries or papaya.

The Passion Fruit Punch and Peachy Keen are great summer drinks that play into the seasonal fruits and tastes of summer. Great around the pool or with a midday brunch these drinks bring of the best in food while tasting like the best that summer has to offer.

The creamier version of the Pink Lady for this recipe is thought to have been around since the 1920's. As most older drinks there are many versions this one uses both cream and an egg white. Once named on Esquire's list of the ten worst cocktails, most likely due to it's girly nature and color, it is still a great drink that has more kick then one would think.

Pink Lemonade is everything a good summer drink should be. Clean and crisp with a touch of raspberry liqueur makes this drink very drinkable on those hot summer days. A nice kick with the Citron flavored Vodka makes this a drink you should keep all the ingredients on hand for all summer long.

With Rose syrup from 1883 and Hibiscus Vodka this martini is as tasty as it is pretty. A delightful light tasting martini that will make you feel like a princess!

The Screwdriver reportedly got its name because American petroleum engineers in Saudi Arabia secretly added vodka to small cans of orange juice and stirred the mixture with their screwdrivers in the late 40’s. It gained prominent in the 50’s and has remained a popular drink since. It is usually one of the first drinks many people try since all you can really taste is the orange juice. It is an easy addition to your party list with only 2 ingredients, Vodka and OJ.
