Served in a Champagne flute, this crisp cocktail works with either alcoholic or non-alcoholic cider. Pomegranate seeds add a tinge of tang and texture, making it the perfect not-quite-summer, not-quite-fall drink. Pour 2 parts sparkling wine into a Champagne flute. Add 1 part cider as a floater on top, then drop in a pinch of pomegranate seeds. Stir as desired.
Greenie In A Bottle
Come on — it was only a matter of time before people started mixing up their green juice. Give your veggies an adult twist by shaking 2 parts gin with ice cubes and 1 part green juice (a light one that isn’t too murky; ginger works great). Top with a splash of club soda to taste.
Practice What You Peach
For a spin on the time-honored, effervescent bellini, thoroughly mix 5 parts vodka and 2 parts Chambord in a cocktail shaker (with ice, if preferred) and pour into a glass. On a cutting board, muddle 1-2 peach slices. Add fruit to the cocktail and serve.
This unique cocktail is the perfect blend of Japanese flavor and Southern-inspired tea. Pour 4 parts lemon tea into a Collins glass and cool with ice. Add 2 parts sake, then stir. Run a lemon wedge along the rim for added flavor, and, if you like, squeeze a little juice into the cocktail.
Gone With The Gin
A clear, sparkling drink, this looks great in a martini glass but — be forewarned — is stronger than it first appears. In a cocktail shaker, mix 4 parts gin with 1 part lemon juice (and ice, if desired). Stir in 10 parts sweet Champagne. Pour into a glass and serve.
