The Bloody Marie, tequila, and Bloody Mary, vodka, both are well served by using the best mixers possible, while there are many great bottled mixes out there the best ones are home made with fresh ingredients. Recipes abound and based on taste can range from very spicy to very smooth and classic. Great for brunch or Sunday morning get togethers, they are also seen as a classic hang over drink to take the Saturday night edge off!

Named after the rock band that never dies, the Grateful Dead will bring you quickly to that altered state of being that most Dead Heads aspire to. So fire up the “The Music Never Stopped” and bottoms up!

Margaritas have come a long way from the classic Tequila, Triple Sec and lime juice. There are many variations as well as serving options. Frozen, Rocks, Up, Salted or not are all part of the large group of recipes. A basic search could return 100’s of recipes all slightly different. At the core though remains Tequila and lime. Adding any number of fruits, switching out the liquors and lead to an endless variety. Some of our favorites, the classic Agave Margarita, the fall taste of the Italian Margarita or the dramatic kick of the Top Shelf Margarita are very drinkable. All of these drinks will get you started exploring the wonderful world of Margaritas and Tequilas. The fewer ingredients and liquors the better the Tequila needs to be for the best taste. Invented in the 1940’s it has, in all its permutations, remained a popular drink since then.

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.

Long Island Iced Tea has disputed origins. Tea. However, numerous sources attribute the origin to one or both of two inventors in the 1970s or 1920s. The most believable is that Robert "Rosebud" Butt claims to have invented the drink as an entry in a contest to create a new mixed drink including Triple Sec, in 1972 while he worked at the Oak Beach Inn on Long Island, NY. Local rumors also ascribe the origin to either Butt or another bartender at the Old Beach Inn, Chris Bendicksen. It remains a kick sand in your face and get drunk kinda drink with 4 spirits and a cordial that make this drink about 22 proof when all is said and done. Back in the 20’s when many spirits were passed off as “tea” to avoid the stigma of drinking there were some similar drinks and even if they were a precursor to this drink it is more of a nod then a true twist on those drinks.

Purple Haze Extreme and Purple Rain are named after 60’s and 80’s songs respectively. Great fun for a themed party or late night party both of these long drinks pack a punch. Keep the drivers out of the way of these bad boys!

This is a fun margarita with lots of flavor, using Patron Tequila and Orange Liqueur

Tequila Sunrises were originally served at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, where it was created by Gene Sulit in the 1930s or 1940s, the cocktail is named for the way it looks after it has been poured into a glass. The denser ingredients (cassis or grenadine) settle, creating gradations in color that mimic a sunrise. The more popular version, with grenadine, was invented by Bobby Lazoff and Billy Rice at the Trident restaurant in Sausalito, California in the early 1970s. The drink is considered a long drink which means it is served in a tall collins glass.

A fun twist on a Margarita Xmas Margarita that's red and green for Christmas.  The ginger beer goes well with the Tequila and adds a nice tang.  A pretty fun take on the classic Margarita on the rocks!

An awesome fall drink the Yowling Tomcat combines east and west with tequila and lychee syrup. A unique and interesting twist on a sweet tequila drink.

Brave Bull is a Black Russian with Tequila. Good drink for the fall and early winter. I think we like the Freddie Fudpicker just because of the name. It's all south of the border with tequila, orange juice and just a touch of Galliano A little harder to put together than your average Margarita, it has 3 layers so you make one at a time and hold in the freezer until you are ready to layer them . It is a fun way to celebrate the 4th with a Red White and Blue Margarita!
