Best Ever Bloody Mary

Whether you're enjoying Sunday brunch, tailgating with friends, or a happy hour libation, there's never a bad time for a Bloody Mary. Truth be told, I consider myself somewhat of an aficionado. In fact, I've been perfecting my recipe for years! Borrowing a little inspiration from the River Run Lodge in Idaho, to The Lantern in Illinois. And after all this time, I finally feel like I've perfected it. Enjoy! Truly, MKR...

Gin & Lillet Cocktail

Let's be honest, you can't throw a successful Mardi Gras luncheon without a signature cocktail. That is why people go to these things, right? Just me? And, oh, wouldn't you know it, we've got just the thing. Have you ever tried a lillet cocktail?

Oscar Saki-tini

It doesn’t get more Hollywood, or more LA for that matter, than sipping on a frosty Saki-tini. It’s part crisp and refreshing Japanese Saki, part chilled vodka, and all kinds of delicious.

For more, head on over to...

The Whiskey Smash

Had you offered me a cocktail infused with whiskey a few months back, I would have politely declined. But then I went out for dinner and accidentally ordered a whiskey ladden bevvy, and at $10 a pop, you better believe I was going to drink it. And wouldn't you know, it was delicious! I promise you if said whiskey cocktail is done right, the results are exquisite. And The Urban Grape's take is very, very right.

Pomegranate Champagne Cocktail With Lime

I'm of the belief that champagne should not be reserved for celebrations alone. In other words? There is absolutely nothing wrong with sipping bubbly on the regular. Life's too short to wait for weddings and New Years, if you ask me! Which is why I'm thrilled that the idea of champagne cocktails is becoming more mainstream. And this beauty, from JoPhoto? It's my new favourite.

Fleur de Sel here stopping by with a fun cocktail, perfect for sharing with your Valentine before dinner! Pear nectar is mixed with a crisp white wine or champagne, gin and ginger simple syrup and then a gorgeous, flame red Campari ice cube is dropped inside. I love how the flavor of this cocktail evolves over time as the Campari ice cube melts, permeating the cocktail with a delightful aromatic glow. The best part? This recipe is...

Champagne Jello Shots

This isn't our first time at the Champagne Jello Shot rodeo but it was certainly the most adorable. Because we gave these little gems a Super Bowl inspired makeover - sort of. Pouring them into tiny beer mugs and keeping the "froth" on top, the result was the world's most adorable and chic party "cocktail."...

Cranberry Bourbon Fizz

My husband considers himself a Bourbon connoisseur. I consider him a bourbon stalker. He actually reads forums to find out when rare bottles of bourbon hit shelves then goes out at the crack of dawn to score a bottle. His current favorite is Angel's Envy but I know he's got his sniffer out there for all sorts of goodies. And I'm thinking that with this next cocktail - from the lovely Kate of...
