Drink Recipes

Smoked Ice. You'll smack your forehead when you read this recipe, and you'll thank me profusely when you use smoked ice in your next Bloody Mary.

Smoked Bloody Mary. Here the classic eye-opener, 19th holer, hair of the dog, and a chance to drink your veggies. Add smoked ice, and you'll have the best Bloody Mary you ever tasted.

David Rosengarten's Real Lemonade. The real thing from lemons, sweet and tart and fruity, the way grandma made it.

Classic Southern Sweet Tea. In the south, tea is served pre-sweetened. Here's how to make classic southern sweet tea.

Mojitos Con Mojo. This refreshing warm-weather cooler, invented in 1586, makes a great accompaniment for smoky and sweet barbecue ribs.

Marvelous Mint Juleps. Kentucky Bourbon is the quintessential American Whiskey and the drink of choice of many of the best pitmasters in the south. The refreshing mint julep became the official drink of the Kentucky Derby in 1938 and tastes mighty good with barbecue.

Saintly Glögg. Samuel Johnson, author of the first English dictionary, wrote, "Claret is the drink for boys, port for men, but he who aspires to be a hero must drink brandy." By that definition, Scandinavian glögg, will make us saintly.

Hot Southern Comfort Cider. This recipe is the perfect cold weather drink, apré?s ski if you will, or apré?s snow blower.

Wine for Swine, Brew for 'cue, Booze Too. The key to selecting the right wine, beer, or cocktail is in the sauce.

John Mariani's Daiquiri, A Classic Cocktail Recipe. Esquire Magazine's famously picky restaurant writer has the recipe for a proper daiquiri on his business card just in case the bartender isn't sure. Here's his recipe.
