The Greta Garbo
Greta Garbo was a Swedish-born actress who rose to fame during the era of silent films. But this cocktail packs a loud punch! Want to try? Add a splash of maraschino liqueur, lime juice, and a pinch of sugar to light rum, & shake well with ice. Serve in a martini glass.
The Charlie Chaplin
Have a sweet tooth? Try the Charlie Chaplin, a drink which was one of the classic cocktails of the Waldorf-Astoria, New York. Whip up some lime, sloe gin & apricot brandy to make the perfect gentleman’s mix.
The Red Carpet
Served at the New York restaurant Daniel to rejoice the Academy Awards, The Red Carpet is made with smooth vodka, Campari, pomegranate & ginger. In New York, the bartenders finish the drink by sprinkling bitters on its foamy top in the shape of an Oscar statue. The Oscars are coming up. What a great way to celebrate!
Blueberry Lavender Vodka Spritzer
This refreshing drink has got the simplicity of a pool party and the sophistication of a high tea. Whipped up with blueberry-lavender syrup, lime juice & vodka, this soda spritzer is a comforting cocktail that everyone will enjoy.
Ready to roll with the whiskey cocktails? Then Sazerac is your go-to drink. Originally made with Cognac, the Carthusian Sazerac is now shaken with rye, chartreuse, syrup, and ice. This charming drink is traditionally topped with bitters and lemon wedges.
Classic French 75
This old-school drink dates to World War I. The primitive form of this drink was created in 1915 at the New York Bar. The Cocktail 75, also called Soixante Quinze (Seventy-Five in French), is made with gin, champagne, lemon juice & sugar.
