During this cold snap, I’ve found myself attracted to cocktails that remind me of warm weather. The Margarita is a quintessential sunny-day drink. This dark blue variation on that classic is a little sweeter and looks a lot more dramatic. You could use lime instead of lemon or use more lemon if you want it more tart. Photo by Jackson Stakeman.

Happy New Year! This week we feature a recipe made with Beefeater’s new winter-edition gin. According to Beefeater’s Master Distiller Desmond Payne, Beefeater Winter features the added botanicals cinnamon, nutmeg and pine shoots providing a deep rich taste.
New Year in Lambeth is a cocktail honoring the Beefeater distillery located in the Lambeth District of London as well as featuring the flavor profile of Beefeater Winter Edition.
The nice ladies at Muy Bueno whipped up this tasty holiday cocktail just in time for Christmas. In their words, “This cocktail is sweet and tangy and easy to make, and tastes ohhhh so delicious. It’s a great way to toast the holiday season!”
Time to start breaking out the Holiday cocktails. I thought we’d kick off the season with an easy favorite featuring Guinness and Champagne. That right, Guinness and Champagne, of course, you could use prosecco, Asti or any other sparkling wine. Courtesy of Guinness.
Champagne cocktails are a fun way to celebrate … or just feel like you’re celebrating. The Shrinking Violet gets its delicate flavor and lovely color from crème de violette, a brandy-based liqueur made with violets. The liqueur gives a delicate sweetness and floral aroma to the cocktail, complementing the champagne rather than covering it up. Add a pansy, violet or viola for garnish!
