January Cocktails

Hope you all had a lovely time celebrating your new year! Let's keep the party going with these lovely and delicious inspired drinks, shall we!? These January cocktails are inspired by our dreams of laying out on sunny beaches soaking up rays, instead of layering over layers to stay warm and dry during our cold, wet, (and somewhat snowy) days.

  1. Coconut Mint Margarita via The Design Confidential: You put the lime in the coconut... and when it's coconut sorbet it's even easier to drink it all up! Featuring tequila, lime juice, shredded coconut, mint and the afore mentioned coconut sorbet, this fabulous cocktail is the perfect get-away while never leaving your home. 
  2. Pear + Ginger-Sage Champagne via Dishing up the Dirt: Still have some champagne hanging around from New Years? This Pear and Ginger Sage champagne cocktail is the perfect way to use it up. The simple syrup created from pears, ginger, honey and sage is one you may just keep on hand throughout the year as the flavor profile works throughout the year.
  3. The Blizzard via Punchbowl: Okay, we had to include one drink that is perfect for our NW January's and The Blizzard was the perfect fit. Coffee, whiskey, hazelnut liqueur, Irish cream liqueur and whipped cream will actually keep you warm as you plan your sunny honeymoon.
  4. Grapefruit Rosemary Mule via Domesticate Me: Moscow Mule's we're all the rage last year and we don't think this tasting cocktail is going anywhere soon which is perfect with us! We like this take on the mule with it's sweetly sour version featuring fresh squeezed grapefruit, vodka, lime juice, ginger beer and rosemary.
