Mixed Drink Recipes: How to make a Cocktail

Recipes for Mixed Drinks

here is a collection of some of the best alcohol drink recipes I've tried. These are of course free for the taking. I like rum drinks the best so that is what there is more of these recipes than any other. Rum cocktails are made best with fruit juice mixes like a Mai Tai or a Bahama Mama. Its also good in coke cola with a twist of lime juice. The best rum to make cocktail drinks with is Bacardi's. If you want a potent drink, use the 150 proof. However, you can't drink too much because it will make you drunk fast. Remember to drink responsibly.

A screwdriver is made from Vodka and orange juice. But, I've used rum with orange juice and it makes a pretty good drink. Whiskey isn't too bad with orange juice either. A bloody Mary is made from Vodka and tomato juice.

Rum is good with fruit too. cut a whole pineapple, watermelon or coconut. If you choose coconut, drain the milk off. Anyway, hollow out a small cavity in the fruit, then pour a large jigger of rum into fruit. Let it sit for several hours, then serve. Or cut up fruit and put into a large punch bowl, then pour a bottle of rum over the fruit. Let it sit a few hours in the refrigerator. Then eat the fruit. This is a excellent party dish.
