Blueberry Gin Fizz

What do you get when you combine blueberries, gin, and soda? A beautiful purple-hue-colored cocktail that does not only look chic but even tastier. The Blueberry Gin Fizz by Vikram Aditya Mishra @the.hometender is a creative twist to the classic cocktail using fresh blueberries and Hendrick’s gin.

  2. Then add gin and lemon juice and shake with ice.
  3. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with blueberry cotton candy.

2. Mai Tai with Banana Liqueur 

Mai Tai with Banana Liqueur 

The good ole mai tai never gets old. Its bright flavors are just too good that you wouldn’t mind having another glass. But what can you add to this superb cocktail to make it even more delicious? 

The Hobby Drink Chef @thehobbydrinkchef thought of Mai Tai with Banana Liqueur which switched the usual orange liqueur to banana liqueur. The result? A tart and potent rum-based drink with notes of lime and sweet fruit.

  1. Add all ingredients, except garnish, to a mixing tin with ice and shake. 
  2. Strain over crushed ice in a tiki mug or double rocks glass.

Blue Milk

Calling all Star Wars fans out there! You would never think twice about making this drink while watching your favorite franchise. Blue Milk is a creation of Bitters and Brew @bittersandbrew, a self-proclaimed fan of the epic space opera. This cocktail was inspired by the infamous blue milk from the Star Wars series.

Ingredients

Steps to Make

  1. Add all ingredients to the shaker with ice. 
  2. Shake until chilled and strain into a cocktail glass.

4. The Queens Park Swizzle

The Queens Park Swizzle

The Queens Park Swizzle is summer and spring in a glass. This creation by Adam Wild @drinksbywild is like a mojito but with more character. Instead of the classic cane sugar and light rum, he swapped them with Demerara sugar, black rum, and dashes of bitters. All these are added without any cola and served over crushed ice.

Ingredients

  • 6 Mint leaves
  • ½ oz. Lime juice
  • ½ oz. Demerara sugar syrup
  • 2 oz. Dark rum (Hamilton Jamaica Pot Still Black)
  • 6 dashes Angostura bitters

Steps to Make

  1. Lightly muddle the mint in the bottom of a glass. 
  2. Combine all ingredients except for bitters and swizzle with crushed ice, dash bitters over the top. 
  3. Top it off with more crushed ice to create a white snow cap. 
  4. Add extra mint and bitters for the layering effect.

5. Mundo Perdido

Mundo Perdido

Not everyone is fond of cocktails with intense sour flavors. But if you are the opposite, you would surely love every sip of Mike Agudelo’s @cocktails_with_mike version of Mundo Perdido. This drink was inspired by the original recipe from the Smuggler's Cove Cocktail Book. The festive drink is a mixture of barrel-aged rum, brandy, apple juice, and cinnamon syrup that gives off sweet and sour refreshing notes.

Ingredients

Steps to Make 

  1. Add all ingredients to a shaker with crushed ice. 
  2. Shake well and strain into a brandy snifter glass filled with crushed ice. 
  3. Add a 6-inches bamboo straw.

6. Paradise Lost

A glass of Paradise Lost

Drinks with various colors are always a sight to behold, just like the Paradise Lost mocktail by the Persian mixologist Farhad @farhad_alvand_official. The layers are intricately added to create a beautiful ombre color. While it is indeed gorgeous, this drink is also equally delicious. The marriage between citrus, fruity, sweet, sour, and astringent notes is well-balanced in every sip.

Ingredients

  • Citrus aurantium extract
  • Handmade ginger
  • Mallow clod extraction 
  • Hibiscus iced tea

Steps to Make

  1. Using the back of a bar spoon, pour in the handmade ginger, mallow clod, citrus Aurantium extract, and hibiscus iced tea layer by layer into a cocktail glass.
  2. Serve and enjoy.

7. Dill Sour Gin

Dill Sour Gin

This minimalist-looking cocktail seems very casual and simple. But don’t get fooled with the Dill Sour Gin by Michael Matzkeit @in_love_with_drinks. This drink combines the bitter hints from the gin, the sour notes from the lemon juice, and the fruity and sweet flavors of apple juice. Overall? A smooth and refreshing cocktail you’d love to have any time of the day. 

Ingredients

Steps to Make

  1. Add all ingredients to a shaker with crushed ice. 
  2. Serve on glass and add garnishes.

8. Manhattan

Glass of Manhattan

Manhattan is one of the most classic cocktails ever made. It’s straight-up delicious and timeless. While the recipe for this drink is virtually the same anywhere, Alan @alan_home_bartender_ suggests that you drink this cocktail in two ways. The reason for this is that if you serve a whole glass cold, you won’t get to finish it up in two minutes. By the time you are about to drink again, it has already lost its cool temperature.

Ingredients

Steps to Make

  1. Combine everything in a martini glass.
  2. Stir well and serve.

9. Pastel

Glass of Pastel cocktail

Looking at this drink makes you want to take a plunge in the pool. It looks so refreshing that it would definitely taste even better when consumed on a beach or poolside. This gorgeous Pastel cocktail is a pea flower infusion that Nitin Tewari @mr.bartender created. This masterpiece explains how the color and look affect the overall drinking experience.

Ingredients

Steps to Make

  1. Add all ingredients to a shaker with crushed ice. 
  2. Shake well and strain into a glass.

10. Tongue Tied

Tongue Tied cocktail in blue

Tongue Tied is a vibrant blue cocktail that is incredibly refreshing and can lift your mood if you are having a bad day. Andrew @andrewscocktails channeled his rough days and made this drink that somehow made him feel a whole lot better. 

The blue color of the drink comes from the butterfly pea flower that is infused with gin. While this drink is gorgeous, it also gives off minty and citrusy flavors that can take your “blues” away.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Citrus infused vodka (@thenuevodka)
  • 2 oz. Butterfly pea flower-infused gin
  • .5 oz. Thyme syrup
  • 2 dashes of Celery bitters
  • 2 dashes of Cardamom bitters

Steps to Make

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass and stir well with ice to combine. 
  2. Strain over fresh ice and brush fresh thyme over the top of the glass. 
  3. Garnish with thyme and lemon peel.
  4. Sit back, relax, and try to think of something witty to say.
