New Years Eve Cocktails

The Wine and Spirits Cellar

We are a family owned business since 2003, proudly serving our area with the very best.  Our team has years of dedicated experience helping guests find the right beverage for the right occasion.

Corpse Reviver

Talk about a revival. This drink rises eight spots this year, and has an interesting twist: There are two versions. Corpse Reviver #1 calls for Cognac, calvados, brandy, and vermouth. Corpse Reviver #2 uses equal parts gin, lemon juice, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc, and a dash of absinthe. Choose wisely.

Dark ‘n’ Stormy

The Dark ’n’ Stormy contains a mix of Gosling’s rum (and only Gosling’s rum) and ginger beer. Sometimes, simplest is best.

Moscow Mule

This famous mug-dwelling drink contains ginger, vodka, lime, and soda. It’s famously served in a Moscow Mule mug, which we venture to guess is much of its slushy appeal.

Gimlet

Two parts gin, one part lime juice, and one-half part sweetener. The Gimlet is an easy sipper that inspires many iterations, and has maintained its 12th place spot for two years running.

Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary is as much an experience as a drink. The brunch-time staple is best enjoyed with a house mix of tomato juice, vodka, and spices. And, if it’s your thing, an array of garnishes — from celery and olives to bacon to entire cheeseburgers — make appearances.

Mojito

The Mojito might be Cuba’s most popular contribution to cocktail culture. The mix of white rum, lime juice, cane sugar, and soda (with muddled mint, please). It is fresh and tropical, and it’s a classic that we don’t expect to disappear any time soon.

Manhattan

It’s hard to stray from the Manhattan, and the recent rise of rye whiskey makes it even more difficult. Spicy rye, sweet vermouth, and two dashes of Angostura, stirred, strained, and garnished with a brandied cherry can make you feel like a true class act.

Whiskey Sour

This dependable drink is an easy fit for whiskey lovers. Also, those weary of the brown spirit: its lemony lift and slight sweetness make it appealing for citrus lovers, too. The simple recipe calls for whiskey, lemon juice, and sugar.
