The best cocktails start with the best cocktail ingredients
Our philosophy on craft cocktails is, “quality in, quality out.”
We love tapping into our mixologist friends to create unique cocktails or whipping up classic craft cocktail recipes ourselves. Especially with all of the great craft spirits, beer, wine, cider, or sake we get each month from our many fabulous craft alcohol memberships!
When it comes to making homemade cocktails we highly suggest using fresh, good quality ingredients so you want to sip and savor, not slug, the handcrafted cocktail you just spent your time creating.
In all our craft cocktail recipes below we share the exact craft product we use. While we highly recommend them for the perfect sip, feel free to substitute other quality, craft alcohol based on what you have available. And if you’re new to slinging drinks, download our free Home Mixology Starter Guide for a quick primer from our resident mixologist, Evan.
Get ready for a great happy hour with these handcrafted cocktails at home…
Let’s get stirrin’ & shakin’!
The original Irish Coffee cocktail was created by Joe Sheridan in the mid 1940’s at an airport in Foynes, Ireland, to warm travelers. In 1952, a San Franciscan travel writer sampled the beverage and that was that—he knew it had to come to California! Sheridan relocated and The Buena Vista Cafe began making proper Irish Coffee. We love ours with J.J. Corry Whiskey and fresh whipped cream!
