12 DIY Bartending Hacks To Try at Home

The summer season may have come and gone, but its spirit lives on. After all, how better to spend days indoors than by picking up some need-to-know bartending tips and creating your very own unique cocktails and drinks just for fun? Lucky for the enthusiasts now reading up, we’ve put together a list of our favorites from easy cocktail recipes available online. So save the bottle-flipping for later, and get down to mixing—SHOOR style!

 

1. Ginger Apple Cocktail

Equal parts peppery and sweet, the Ginger Apple Cocktail is the lovechild of apple juice and ginger ale. It’s made with vodka for an added kick, and you can also choose to garnish it with some rosemary if something bitter’s up your alley. We give this one ten out of ten.

2. Apple Cider Champagne

Brandy? Dark rum? Why not both? Apple Cider Champagne puts either to good use. Mixed with chilled champagne or other sparkling wine, it’s all the zest you’ll ever need. Top it off with some apple slices and the two big Gs: granulated sugar and ground cinnamon.

3. Vodka Frosting Shots

Not to be confused with donuts (although they sure do look like them), Vodka Frosting Shots are for every sweet-toothed life of the party. Ready for the big reveal? They’re made with vodka and frosting. That’s it—with sprinkles and corn syrup or honey to rim the glass.

4. Orange Creamsicle Delight

We didn’t even know what whipped vodka was until discovering this beaut. The Orange Creamsicle Delight pairs it well with soda or juice for pop and ginger ale for citrus, enough to form the base on which the wedges or maraschino cherries will sit pretty while you sip.

5. Pink Champagne Sangria

Half cups of water, sugar, and chopped fresh mint aren’t much to go on. But with ruby red grapefruit juice, pomegranate juice, and a bottle of pink moscato? You’ll be in for a good time. And by “good” we mean prepare for the best of sweet, sour, and fizz.

6. Vodka Gummy Bears

It’s just as its name suggests. Vodka Gummy Bears take (you guessed it) vodka and gummy bears center stage. The mixing process is even simpler: grab a bottle of vodka and a pack of gummy bears. “Less is more” has never been this fun—or chewy.

7. Hot Spiced Wine

Fancy a merlot, zinfandel, or cabernet sauvignon? We’d highly recommend elevating its profile with bitter and zesty additions: apple cider, cinnamon and more. That’s a one-way ticket to Hot Spiced Wine, which also includes a bit of brandy. We’ll take two.

8. Earl Grey Martini

From crisp to malty and even whiskey-like, gin knows no bounds when it comes to flavor. Combined with the sharpness of tea, it’s the perfect ingredient for an Earl Grey Martini. Throw in some ice to cool it all down, and your taste buds are in for a whirlwind experience.

9. S’More Martini

“Decadent” doesn’t even come close. This dessert-turned-beverage delivers more than its fair share of sweetness with chocolate syrup, graham crackers, and heavy cream. It wouldn’t be called the S’More Martini otherwise. Did we mention that there’s vodka somewhere in there?

10. Watermelon Moscato Slush

Watermelon. Moscato. Slush. That’s a match made in fruity heaven, and it goes even higher with some freshly squeezed lemon juice. Your geese will be bumping. Your lips will be smacking. You’ll want to come back for seconds and thirds before the day’s up.

11. Skinny Margarita

Is it time for tequila? You bet it is. Boasting a balanced mix of blanco or reposado, lime and orange juice, and maple syrup, the Skinny Margarita is a full-bodied drink. Enjoy it while the sun’s up or down and with whatever mood you’re in. Get the kosher or flaky sea salt, too.

12. Jell-O Shots

Don’t let their names fool you. Jello-O Shots are not child’s play. Made with a healthy dose of vodka, ice-cold water, your favorite gelatin, and any food coloring, they put the bang in your buck and the buzz in your brain. It’s a definite group treat, but solo flights are most welcome.

Why wait to try out these easy cocktail recipes? There’s you, your glass, and your music—and three’s a party.
