3 Drink Recipes For Your Quarantine
If you're like me, you might be getting tired of this stay at home order. Quarantine started off with my usual drinks. A glass of chardonnay, a White Claw, or a Gin and tonic with a splash of grapefruit juice. Now that we have passed day 50 of our stay-at-home order, I miss going to my usual bars getting a fun drink and I'm sure you miss it too. So, to help break the rut of your same old drinks, here are three Quarantini recipes to help you get through.
Peanut Butter Whiskey Martini:
Personally, I'm allergic to peanut butter. If I have a peanut or tree but I'll go into anaphylactic shock and it becomes a whole thing. But, my mom has been drinking this one a lot lately and it both looks and smells amazing, it's so tempting. You can whip yourself up this martini too!
. 2 shots of peanut butter Whiskey
. 3/4 shot of Godiva white chocolate liquor
. 3/4 shot of Godiva chocolate liquor
Toss all of the ingredients in a shaker, shake it up, and pour into your favorite martini glass.
Everybody knows the rim of the glass is just as important as what's in the glass. For the rim, coat in caramel and sprinkle a bit of sea salt on top.
Caramel Apple Martini:
This is one of my favorites from one of the local restaurants in my town. However, since they have been closed, we have to improvise. Caramel apple martinis are a common drink special in the fall, especially here in New England. They are a great way to give you that little bit of sweetness that you cave without being too sweet. You can mix up this drink with these ingredients.
. 1 shot of apple Vodka
. 1 shot of caramel Vodka
. About 1 ounce of white peach cranberry juice
. A splash of cranberry juice
Add all of these ingredients into a shaker and shake it up. Pour into your favorite martini glass and top it off with a caramel rim.
If you're looking to switch it up a bit and feel a little fancy, try a mint julep. For this drink, you will need a muddler to muddle the fresh mint.
. 1 shot of Bourbon
. 1.5 tsp of sugar (I use simple syrup, but raw sugar works great too)
. Fresh mint leaves
. Crushed ice
To make the drink, muddle a few mint leaves, sugar, and a splash of water in a rocks glass. Add the crushed ice and Bourbon. Garnish with more fresh mint leaves.
