Quite simply the answer is… both are great.

In the dawn of the cocktail revolution everything was ‘Make-Your- Own’. There were cocktails like: Ants in Your Pants, Bee Knees, Fluffy Ruffles and Poop-Poop-A Doop (honestly we are not making this stuff up).

Today some of the drinks from that by-gone era are still popular: Margarita, Manhattan, Cosmopolitan, Martini’s (there are more Martinis than you can shake a stick at)

There really isn’t a lot to making your own simple cocktail. Now there are pretty fancy ones with lots of ingredients too. There are tons of books that have great recipes. Of course, on-line there are scads of recipes. Pick a flavour and a liquor or liqueur. Some people like rum based cocktails, others like vodka or gin based ones. We have one below made in Portugal from Morello Cherries. Yum.

Pre-mixed cocktails take all the guess work out of it for you. Pick a drink that you like: Margarita, Mojito, Cosmopolitan or Sex on the Beach. Chill… Shake… Pour… Enjoy. Enjoying with friends is even better. Always enjoy responsibly, of course.

When you come in we will have some easy recipes for you for the yummy liqueur.
