Cocktail Recipes

Pumpkin Spice Martini:

1 oz vanilla vodka
1 oz Bailey’s
1 1/2 oz pumpkin spice liqueur
dash of cinnamon and nutmeg

Combine the vodka, Bailey’s and pumpkin spice liqueur in a shaker with ice. Pour evenly between two martini glasses, and sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg on top. Or pour it all into a single drinking glass and call it a “smoothie.” I won’t tell.


1 oz white rum
1 oz Jamaican dark rum
1 oz Bacardi 151 rum
3 oz orange juice
3 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
1/2 oz grenadine syrup
crushed ice

Combine all ingredients, mix well by shaking. Pour over crushed ice in hurricane glass. Or a travel mug. Or any cylindrical vessel that will convey the delicious drink to your lips, with or without a straw. (In times of crisis – like when there’s a hurricane coming – it is important to be flexible.)

Farmer’s Cocktail

2 Dashes of Bitters
1 oz of Gin
0.5 oz Dry Vermouth
0.5 oz Sweet Vermouth

Stir all ingredients with ice, strain into a cocktail glass and serve. Drink instead of weeding like you are supposed to be doing.
