Sailor’s Delight

Sailor's Delight ® Cocktails, 365 2015

“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning.” – Proverb   It’s long been said that the manner of sky that tucks sailors into bed, as well what greets them in the morning, harkens to the weather they can expect to deal with during the day. Countless blogs, podcasts, books, and […]

Purple Rose of the Desert Sage | ® Cocktails, 365

Back on June 14, the cocktail world celebrated National Bourbon Day. We celebrated, too, but perhaps a bit too much.

Molinero Lite

Molito Light | ® Cocktails, 365

Can you make a decent beertail with crappy beer? We try and (kind of) succeed!

Pear and Tonic

Pear and Tonic | ® Cocktails, 365

There’s beauty in simplicity. There’s a desire, which we’re not immune to, that seems to dedicate the love of everything complex. If you can create a cocktail with some many flavors working in harmony together, surely it stands as proof that you’re brilliant. Even Einstein (reportedly) said that if a cluttered desk was the sign […]

Smashing | ® Cocktails, 365

The phrase “better letter than never” seems to truly define the Cocktails, 365 experience. We have these grand plans of involvement in major events in the cocktail movements of the day and then we promptly get involved with enjoying the event and not writing about it. Specifically, today, we’re talking about World Gin Day.

Peaches n’ Tea

Peaches n' Tea

Flavored liqueurs are so ubiquitous at this point that it’s no longer really news when a new concoction comes rolling out of the major player distilleries. Malibu is among the most prolific, with over 14 different flavor versions of their famous coconut rum. One of their newest, introduced earlier this year, is the Peaches n’ Cream.  It […]

Big Blue Mule


The Big Blue Mule takes your same basic Moscow Mule recipe and gives it a blast of fresh blueberries for a deep purple hue, and just a little bit more sweetness than the standard classic.

Grand Herbologist

Grand Herbologist

Late spring and summer means that fresh herbs are creeping back into our daily cocktails. When picking herbs for your cocktail of choice, don’t limit yourself to the standards, however. Sure, you can pick up some sweet basil and make one damn fine basil-gin concoction. In fact, the gin-bail smash using “standard” gin is STILL this […]

Lavender Vodka Tonic

Lavender Vodka Tonic

The lavender dominates the drink, but is prevented from being overly sweet by the tonic. While sipping, the sage will give you just a little bit more savory from all the sweetness from the lavender syrup.
