Moscow Mule

There’s a saying that good managers take more than their share of the blame, and less than their share of the credit. I’m on a team of hard-working, under-celebrated managers and was looking for a way to treat them every so often. We now celebrate the end of the quarter with hand-shaken cocktails, and this combination of vodka, lime, and ginger beer was one of the first recipes.

Champagne Margaritas

These cocktails are delicious, but strong! The Champagne rounds out the strong flavors of the tequila, making a strong drink seem mellow.

This recipe easily doubles or triples for a crowd. Mix and chill the ingredients, and then top with Champagne to serve.

Ryan’s Classic Margarita

It’s a “classic” because it only uses high-quality original ingredients – not a margarita mix.

Sangria Blanco

We love our red sangria, but this version, made with white wine, white grape and peach juice, vodka, and frozen fruit, is a lighter version perfect for summer.

Sarah’s Sangria

Our friend Sarah is well-known in the group for her sangria recipe. Whenever she has a party, she puts out a pitcher of sangria mix and a bottle of ginger ale, alongside instructions for mixing them — half and half, unless you’d like it stronger or lighter. I love it so much, I now serve it at my parties, too.
