I am so excited to work with Cantera Negra on some new cocktails using their tequilas! Cantera Negra has a truly amazing tequila lineup, and my first thought was to make a riff on an Old Fashioned using their añejo. Of course, I wanted to jazz mine up a bit with some smoke and grapefruit 😍 So good! Have you ever tried a tequila Old Fashioned? Añejo is normally more of a sipping style of tequila, and all of the Cantera Negra tequilas are made to be super flavorful and sippable on their own. (BTW - this drink would be great with their reposado also!) All of their tequilas are small batch, made without any sugars or added colors. I love how much care they put into making their ultra-premium tequila by hand! If you’re in the U.S., head over to the link in my bio to buy Cantera Negra products through Drizly. Also, give @CanteraNegraTequila a follow for more content & recipes! Añejo Smoked Old Fashioned 2 ounces Cantera Negra Añejo tequila @CanteraNegraTequila ½ ounce smoked simple syrup (homemade) 1 to 3 dashes hopped grapefruit bitters grapefruit peel Add the tequila, simple syrup and bitters to a mixing glass with ice. Stir for 30 seconds and then strain into your serving glass over a large piece of ice. Use a cocktail smoker and pecan wood chips to add smoke to the top of the drink, and let it sit in the smoke while you prepare your grapefruit peel. Remove the smoker, express the grapefruit oils over the top of the drink, and serve. Cheers! #CanteraNegraTequila #DrinkCanteraNegra #CanteraNegraPartner #ad #cocktails #tequilacocktails #tequilaoldfashioned #smokedcocktails #Msgfor21+

Happy #NegroniWeek! Hope you've gotten to enjoy one of the originals, or maybe your own riff this week. I tried out a White Negroni, which tastes so different from a regular Negroni that it's kind of ridiculous. But, I actually kind of liked it better once I got going! It's not nearly as sweet as the original. The Suze liqueur is the main reason why this drink is yellow, and it also gives it a strong gentian bitterness.⁠ ⁠ What's your favorite Negroni riff? 🥂⁠ ⁠ White Negroni⁠ ½ ounce Suze gentian liqueur⁠ 1 ounce dry vermouth⁠ 1½ ounce gin⁠ ⁠ Stir over ice, strain onto a large piece of ice and serve with a lemon peel garnish.

I love a good Cognac cocktail! Are you a fan of mixing with Cognac? I know a lot of people consider it "too good" to use in a mixed drink. I'm not out here mixing with XO or anything and I definitely suggest trying it out.⁠ ⁠ This one is a classic called the Champs-Élysées, named after the main street in Paris. It's a Sidecar riff that uses green Chartreuse instead of Cointreau. I really enjoyed this one, it has a totally elegant feel and the Cognac base is so good!⁠ ⁠ 👉️Full printable recipe is on my blog (link in bio)⁠ ⁠ Champs-Élysées⁠ ¾ ounce lemon juice⁠ ¾ ounce simple syrup⁠ 2 dashes Angostura bitters⁠ 1¾ ounce Cognac⁠ ¼ ounce Chartreuse green liqueur⁠ lemon peel for garnish⁠ ⁠ Shake all with ice, strain and garnish.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #cognac #cocktail #cocktails #cocktailrecipe #cocktailsofinstagram #cocktailgram #drinksofinstagram #drinkstagram #cognaccocktail #cognaclover #cognaclife #cocktailoftheday #drinkoftheday #cocktailsathome #homebartender #imbibe #imbibegram #bestcocktails #tw50bc #greenchartreuse #drinkdrinkdrink #its5oclocksomewhere ⁠

Hibiscus is such a delicious cocktail flavor! I made homemade hibiscus syrup using dried flowers, and it is an amazing ingredient. I used it up so fast! It has a light tanginess like a fruit, and the color can't be beat 😍 I paired it with pineapple juice and some ginger bitters for a little bit of spice.⁠ ⁠ Hibiscus Gin Cocktail⁠ 1½ ounces gin⁠ 1 ounce hibiscus syrup (homemade - recipe on my blog*)⁠ 1 ounce lime juice⁠ 1½ ounces pineapple juice⁠ 3 dashes ginger bitters⁠ 1 ounce lime-flavored seltzer⁠ ⁠ Shake all but the seltzer with ice, strain onto fresh ice and top with the seltzer. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Mango Mai Tai 🍹 this is one I could drink over and over again. I love a good Mai Tai, and the addition of mango nectar gives this a little something extra. I think a lot of people are surprised when they find out there is no pineapple juice in a Mai Tai! Just lime juice in the original recipe. What's your go-to tropical drink??⁠ ⁠ Mango Mai Tai⁠ 1 ounce lime juice⁠ ½ ounce orange Curaçao⁠ ¼ ounce orgeat⁠ ¾ ounce mango nectar (homemade)⁠ 2 ounces aged rum⁠ ⁠ Combine all in a shaker with crushed ice, shake 3 to 5 times and serve with the same ice. Garnish with a spent lime & mango slices. ⁠ Full recipe is on my blog along with a recipe for the mango nectar. Cheers! 🥂 ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #mangococktail #mangomaitai #maitai #cocktail #its5oclocksomewhere #cocktailgram #cocktailsofinstagram #cocktails #tikicocktails #rumcocktail #rumcocktails #mango #rum #drinksdrinksdrinks #cocktailrecipe #drinkstagram #drinksofinstagram #imbibe #imbibegram #bestcocktails #tw50bc #cocktailsathome #homebartender #rumstagram #rumlovers #tropicalcocktails

Happy Friday! I have to confess that I haven't been drinking at all for the past few weeks beyond looots of water, and seltzer with lime. (Covid will do that to ya!) So this drink is actually from a little while ago, but I'm finally getting to share it now.⁠ ⁠ I received this Noir de Noir wine from Gen7 Wines (@gen7wine) and it is such a unique and delicious dessert wine! It has a lot of fruity sweetness, which made it really fun to play with in a cocktail. What's your favorite wine-based mixed drink?⁠ ⁠ 🍷Sweet Sangria Noir⁠ 1 ounce white rum⁠ 1 oz Aperol @aperolusa⁠ 1½ ounces lemon juice⁠ 1½ ounces Noir de Noir wine @gen7wine gifted⁠ ⁠ Shake the rum, Aperol and lemon with ice and strain into your serving glass. Slowly pour in the wine. It will sink to the bottom of the glass. Float a dried lemon slice on top as a garnish.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #winelover #instawine #winecocktail #cocktail #mixology #cocktailgram #drinkstagram #drinksofinstagram #cocktailsofinstagram #cocktailoftheday #winestagram #bestcocktails #weekendvibes #aperol #cocktailsathome #homebartender #its5oclocksomewhere #imbibe #imbibegram #rumcocktail #cocktails #drinkdrinkdrink #cocktailtime

I love a good Paloma 💖grapefruit is actually one of the best cocktail mixers. Prove me wrong 🤪 I know because I used to always avoid it, but now I can't get enough. I was inspired to make this drink because I received a bottle of @root_elixirs grapefruit jalapeño mixer. So, I made this cocktail two ways, once with their mixer and once without. It was amazing both ways! The mixer had a smoother taste, whereas the fresh version had more acidity and tanginess from the freshly squeezed citrus. You can read more about it on my blog but here's the recipe 🥂 Spicy Paloma (Fresh juice version) 2 ounces tequila blanco 1 ounce lime juice ¼ ounce grapefruit juice ¾ ounce jalapeño syrup (homemade, recipe on my blog) 2 ounces seltzer Spicy Paloma (Root Elixirs version) 2 ounces tequila blanco 3 ounces Grapefruit Jalapeño mixer @root_elixirs gifted Garnish with fresh jalapeño slices and a grapefruit slice. . . . . . #cocktailsofinstagram #paloma #spicypaloma #tequilacocktails #cocktailgram #imbibe #imbibegram #bestcocktails #tw50bc #drinkstagram #drinksofinstagram #cocktailrecipe #cocktailsathome #homebartender #cocktails #tequilacocktail #drinkdrinkdrink #its5oclocksomewhere #spicycocktail #tequilagram

I am loving Cantera Negra Café so much! #ad This cocktail is one of my guilty pleasures for sure 😍 Cantera Negra sent me some of their tequila-based coffee liqueur to try, and I am beyond impressed. It’s even better than the late, great Patron XO Café (RIP). If you haven’t tried it yet, you need to get on it! ⁠ ⁠ So back to the cocktail… this is soooo delicious, and tastes so much like coffee ice cream. Definitely a desserty drink, so leave room for an indulgence! 🥂⁠ ⁠ If you’re in the U.S., head over to the link in my bio to buy Cantera Negra Café through Drizly. Follow @CanteraNegraTequila for more content & recipes!⁠ ⁠ Sweet Cream Café⁠ 1 ounce tequila⁠ 1 ounce Cantera Negra Café @CanteraNegraTequila⁠ 1 ounce heavy cream⁠ ½ ounce vanilla syrup (or simple syrup plus ⅛ teaspoon vanilla extract) plus more for garnish⁠ Mix of cocoa and sugar for garnish⁠ ⁠ Rim your glass by dipping it into vanilla syrup and then into a mixture of cocoa and sugar. Set aside. Add tequila, Cantera Negra Café, cream and syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into the serving glass. Cheers!⁠ ⁠ #CanteraNegraCafe #DrinkCanteraNegra #CanteraNegraPartner #tequilacocktails #patronxocafe #coffeeLiqueur #Msgfor21+

Are you a fan of Pisco? I haven't used it very much beyond a standard Pisco Sour (which I do love). I had a few different flavors from @bluestembotanicals that I wanted to incorporate into this drink, and I thought Pisco could really tie them together nicely.⁠ ⁠ Boy was I right 💅 this was sooo tasty, and I will definitely be making it again. The lemon and Pisco complement the ginger, lemongrass and basil really well. Give this one a try if your Pisco is sitting around being neglected! 🥂 (Genever or gin would work well in this one if you don't have Pisco!)⁠ ⁠ Pisco Ginger Lemonade⁠ ⁠ 1 oz lemon juice⁠ ½ oz lemongrass syrup @bluestembotanicals⁠ ½ oz limoncello (homemade)⁠ 1½ oz Pisco @caravedopisco⁠ bar spoon Genovese basil-infused vodka⁠ 2 dashes ginger tincture @bluestembotanicals⁠ 2-3 ounces ginger flavored seltzer (optional)⁠ 2 sprays Tulsi basil hydrosol @bluestembotanicals⁠ ⁠ Shake all but the seltzer and hydrosol with ice. Double strain into a serving glass. Top with seltzer, add a lemon wheel and Genovese basil sprig for garnish, and spray the hydrosol to finish it off. Cheers!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ @bestcocktails #bestcocktails #bluestembotanicals #pisco #piscococktail #brandy #brandycocktail #liqpic #cocktail #cocktails #drinkstagram #cocktailsofinstagram #cocktailgram #cocktailsathome #homebartender #its5oclocksomewhere #cocktailrecipe #cocktaillife #imbibe #tw50bc #imbibegram #drinkoftheday #cocktailoftheday #drinkdrinkdrink #summerdrinks #drinksofinstagram

Cantera Negra has really impressed me with their Café liqueur! #ad It’s a tequila-based coffee liqueur that not only is filling the gap left by Patron XO Café, but blowing it out of the water. They were kind enough to send some over for me to try, and I am officially obsessed! 😍 Have you tried it out yet? CN Café is amazing as a shot, but I wanted to try making some recipes with it too. When I was thinking up a name for this drink, the first thing that came to mind was cherry cola. For something that has zero cola in it, it really looks and tastes similar (but way better!) 🍒 If you’re in the U.S., head over to the link in my bio to buy Cantera Negra Café through Drizly. Follow @CanteraNegraTequila for more content & recipes! Cherry Cola Café 1 ounce mezcal 1 ounce Cantera Negra Café @CanteraNegraTequila ½ ounce maraschino liqueur ¼ ounce cinnamon vodka infusion 1-2 ounces seltzer Maraschino cherry for garnish Add everything but the seltzer to a mixing glass with ice. Stir for 30 seconds and then strain over fresh ice into your serving glass. Top with seltzer and garnish with a maraschino cherry on a cocktail pick. Cheers! #CanteraNegraCafe #DrinkCanteraNegra #CanteraNegraPartner #tequilacocktails #patronxocafe #coffeeLiqueur #MsgFor21+

Happy July! My brain is still a few months behind, honestly. I can't believe June is already over. But if anything screams summer it's this watermelon mojito 😍🍉 Have you ever made fresh watermelon juice? It's super easy. I made a cocktail last year by pressing watermelon chunks in a citrus press, but I think it's more efficient to blend and strain it. Then you can keep the juice for days (not that it'll last that long).⁠ ⁠ Recipe below, or grab the printable recipe on my blog (along with instructions on how to make the watermelon juice)!⁠ ⁠ 🍉Watermelon Mojito🍉⁠ 10-12 mint leaves⁠ 1 tablespoon sugar⁠ 1 ounce lime juice⁠ 2 ounces watermelon juice⁠ 2 ounces light rum⁠ 1-2 ounces seltzer⁠ ⁠ Stir the mint and sugar together in your serving glass. Add the lime, watermelon juice, rum and ice. Top with seltzer and garnish with fresh watermelon & mint. Cheers!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #watermelon #cocktail #watermelonmojito #mojito #rum #rumcocktail #cocktailsathome #homebartender #gincocktail #cheers #bestcocktails #tw50bc #moodymixologist #rumlovers #its5oclocksomewhere #drinkstagram #cocktailsofinstagram #cocktails #imbibe #imbibegram #cocktailoftheday #drinkoftheday #drinkdrinkdrink #cocktailhour

What better way to celebrate #WorldGinDay than with an Eastside? 🥂 Cucumbers are such a great cocktail ingredient, IMO! 🥒 they go so well with the gin, lime & mint in this drink. What are you drinking today?? Fun fact, the Eastside was originally developed as a highball, but many people serve it up nowadays. I think it's awesome either way 💚 Eastside 3-4 slices fresh cucumber, plus a long strip for garnish 1 ounce lime juice (preferably freshly squeezed) 6-8 fresh mint leaves, plus a sprig for garnish 2 ounces gin (I used @hendricksgin) ¾ ounce simple syrup Muddle the cucumber and lime juice, then add the mint leaves and muddle lightly. Add the gin and simple, shake, strain, garnish & serve 🥂 . . . . . #cocktailsofinstagram #gincocktail #cocktailgram #homebartender #cocktailsathome #its5oclocksomewhere #bestcocktails #tw50bc #drinkstagram #drinkoftheday #drinksofinstagram #cocktailoftheday #ginstagram #cocktail #cocktaillovers #imbibe #imbibegram #gin #drinkdrinkdrink

Elderflower Gin Fizz 💜💗 this one is so fun to make. Did you know that you can pour seltzer down a twisty bar spoon and it won't spill? One of my favorite fun bar tool facts 😁 Printable recipe is on limoncellokitchen.com, search for gin fizz ✨️ 1½ ounces gin @empress1908gin ½ ounce elderflower liqueur @stgermaindrinks 1 ounce lemon juice ½ ounce simple syrup 1 ounce egg white (preferably pasteurized) 3 ounces seltzer lemon slice & edible flower for garnish Shake the gin, elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white with ice. Strain out the ice and do a dry shake w/o ice (or use a milk frother like me). Strain into a highball glass and top with seltzer by carefully pouring it into the center of the drink using the non-spoon end of a twisty bar spoon. Garnish and serve 🥂💜 . . . . . #gin #gincocktail #ginfizz #elderflower #gincocktails #purpledrinks #summerdrinks #summerdrink #bestcocktails #moodycocktails #tw50bc #gindrinks #cocktailsofinstagram #drinkstagram #drinkoftheday #imbibe #imbibegram #drinksofinstagram #cocktailgram #cocktailsathome #homebartender #cocktailoftheday
