Many moons ago, back when 18 was the drinking age in Wisconsin, my girlfriends and I would pile into a car and make the hour long drive across the Illinois Wisconsin state border to sip on Tom Collins and Tequila Sunrise cocktails, usually adorned with cute umbrellas or fun stirrers. But by the time I graduated from college, wine had become the “it” beverage and very few of my cohorts knew how to mix even the simplest cocktail. Now that cocktails are once again the drink of choice, many of us early boomers need a refresher. Obviously, today you can google the name of any drink and will receive pages and pages of recipes. The challenge becomes which recipe is the best. Well Drizzly has gathered the best of the best recipes together in one easy location and tells you exactly what you need for each drink. Here is the kicker >> once you decide on tonight's cocktail of choice, you can have all the ingredients delivered right to your front door within an hour. Yes, you read that correctly. So if you have already had a drink or two, no need to drive!!!! All the ingredients you need for that B52 shot you have been craving (or whatever else has tickled your fancy) can be delivered to your door within an hour!!!! Continue Reading →
