Simple Cocktail Recipes To Try At Home

SIMPLE COCKTAIL RECIPES TO TRY AT HOME

 
 

These are uncertain times, and now more than ever, staying home is the best we can do (unless you’re a healthcare worker, or essential service worker, for that we salute and we thank you).

Most of us are trying our best to cope with self isolating. Some have turned to cooking or baking as a past time, others have spent long hours binge watching drama serials, signed up for online workout or yoga sessions, or just focusing on self-care routines. Then there’re some of us who find comfort in sipping on cocktails, who connect with our friends on Zoom or Houseparty for virtual happy hours, who typically spend Friday nights at the bars and are totally missing that.

If you’ve got a few bottles of liquor at home, we’ve compiled a few simple and delicious cocktail recipes you can try at home. (If you’re not of 18 years of age, this is not for you)
