You Share: Favorite Cocktail Recipes

Today we are featuring iSi's Twist'n'Sparkle  beverage carbonation system and mixing some virtual cocktails at the Daily Grommet HQ (all in the name of product testing of course). So, in the spirit of today's Grommet, we turned to Twitter and asked some of our favorite party hostesses what cocktails they like to mix up after a long day's work or when they gather with friends.

@HWTM_Jenn: A French Martini! Garnish with lemon peel twist or pineapple leaf.

1 1/2 oz vodka
1/4 oz Chambord® Raspberry Liqueur
1/4 oz fresh pineapple juice

Shake with ice and pour into a cocktail or martini glass.

@ABCDdesigns: A Frozen Vodka Slush. Prepare this recipe a day or two in advance so the slush can freeze and be extra delicious when served.

Ingredients: 8 cups water, 3 cups white sugar, juice of 2 lemons, juice of 2 oranges, one 48oz can of pineapple juice, one 12oz can frozen Minute Maid grapefruit juice, one 12oz can of frozen Minute Maid lemonade, 26oz Vodka (I prefer Ketel One)

-Make a simple syrup. Let cool.
-In a separate bowl, combine the juice of 2 lemons, 2 oranges, 1 48oz can of pineapple juice, 1 12oz can frozen Minute Maid grapefruit juice, 1 12oz can of frozen Minute Maid lemonade and 26oz Vodka.
-Add the juice/vodka mix to the syrup. Stir and transfer into an air-tight tupperware container(s) with lid(s). Freeze.
-When guests arrive, stir the slush and fill the glass half-full with frozen vodka slush. Fill the rest of the glass with diet 7-Up. Enjoy!

@KimVallee: Tom Collins. Prepare a drink station with everything you need:  ice cubes, two jiggers, two bar spoons, favorite  gin bottle(s), soda water bottles, simple syrup, fresh mints, and plenty of high ball glasses.
How to make a Tom Collins:

  2. Fill the glass with ice cubes
  3. Top with soda water
  4. Mix the ingredients with the spoon

    Thank you ever-so-much for reaching out to me and including one of my favorite cocktail recipes on the Daily Grommet! All of these drinks look completely delicious, I can't wait to try them out while entertaining this summer.

    Tori, I see you linked to my tumblr - and that is right because I have been having some blog issues lately, but I think I am up and running again at ABCD Design: www.abcddesign.com

    Thanks again for including ABCD!

  • Tori Says:

    Thank you ladies for sharing such great sipping ideas! Amy, I changed the link and am happy to hear your lovely website is back in business!

  • Jenn @ HWTM Says:

    Thanks so much for including me! All of these drinks look fantastic... too bad we can't have a big cocktail party and enjoy them together... I'd love to toast with everyone here :)

    P.S. Definitely going to have to try the frozen vodka slush soon with the weather heating up already!

  • Lea McIntosh Says:

    Such great recipes! Sorry we missed your tweet for a round of drinks from your fav hostess'! These days I am loving dark chocolate and can't get enough of it! Here is a recipe I created for a special New Year's dessert party:

    Chocolate Haze
    2.5 oz. Grey Goose vanilla vodka
    2.5 oz. Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
    1 oz. butterscotch schnapps
    1 oz. Godiva chocolate liqueur

    Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, Grey Goose vanilla vodka, Frangelico hazelnut
    liqueur, and butterscotch schnapps, then shake. Strain into an 8 oz. chilled
    martini glass. Then, slowly pour the Godiva chocolate liqueur down the center to
    create the chocolate haze.

    Also, I'm working on making a 'Captain Crunkberry' recipe which I will share when I've got the perfect mix! Is there a DDR party in the future? LOL. I can feel the aches already!
