Easy Alcohol Only Cocktails For Home

April 1, 2020 by Tom Bronock

Its our mission to make cocktail culture more accessible to the world, one cocktail at a time.

Just because we are all stuck at home doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy the finer things in life.

Our team have put together a list of cocktails that are delicious, have limited ingredients and are booze only. So get dressed up, cook something delicious and raid that spirits cabinet.

Negroni

Create by the enigmatic Count Camillo Negroni in the early 1900’s, the Negroni has quite rightly had a renaissance…in fact more than a renaissance, its hit celebrity status. What’s more it’s a) delicious and b) super easy to make.

Ingredients

25ml Gin
25ml Sweet Vermouth
25ml Campari
Orange Zest

Method

Put cubed ice into a rocks glass and add all ingredients. Stir five times and garnish with an orange zest

Manhattan

The ultimate in sophistication and class, the Manhattan is as classic as it comes. Don’t be put off by the whisky, the cocktail is smooth, really tasty and definitely worth the experiment if you are unsure on whisky.

Ingredients

50ml Bourbon Whisky
25ml Sweet Vermouth
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Method

Add all ingredients into a mixing glass and stir ten times. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.

Bijou

If complexity and character is your thing then the Bijou is most definitely the one. Big gin notes are mellowed by sweet vermouth and then given a shot in the arm by Chartreuse.

Ingredients

50ml Gin
25ml Sweet Vermouth
15ml Chartreuse
2 Dashes Bitters (preferably orange)

Method

Add all ingredients into a mixing glass and stir ten times. Strain into a martini glass.

The Godfather

Aptly named, this drink is delish and the godfather of simple cocktails. Amaretto and Bourbon are literally a match made in heaven and we think once you have tried this there will be no going back.

Ingredients

25ml Bourbon Whisky
25ml Amaretto

Method

Ice up a rocks glass and add all ingredients. Give a stir and serve. Orange zest garnish optional.

Black Russian

The brooding cousin of the White Russian, the Black Russian is another simple cocktail created by those clever drinkers in the 1940’s. It was said to have been created as an antidote to the doom and gloom of the second world war.

Ingredients

25ml Vodka (preferably a creamy potato vodka)
25ml Coffee Liqueur

Method

Ice up a rocks glass and add all ingredients. Give a stir and serve.
