Simple Moscow Mule

Rating: 4.9 stars
This is a vodka version of a dark and stormy.

Easy Apple Cider

Rating: 4.55 stars
Simple spiced apple cider! I used to buy the spices already mixed at the grocery store, and they stopped carrying it this year, so I just made my own. This is great for a shower or get together and the slow cooker keeps it warm, so guests can enjoy it through the night. When it's done, it's great mixed with spiced rum and/or a slice of orange! Leftover cider is great cold too!

Candy Cane Cocoa

The rich flavor of chocolate combines so well with peppermint. This is the perfect drink to sip while trimming the tree.

The Real Mojito

Rating: 4.74 stars
This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.

Classic Old Fashioned

Rating: 4.51 stars
One of the great classic bourbon cocktails, the Old Fashioned was invented in Louisville, KY. Try bourbon, rye, or a blended whiskey in this cocktail. You can also sub one sugar cube for the simple syrup.

Creamy Hot Cocoa

It's old fashioned, it's comforting, it makes the kitchen smell wonderful and it's good for the soul.
