Cocktails To Make At Home For Your Houseparty

And finally, finally, we are at what our name says. By now have managed to get some liquor on your shelves. However exciting you must have been for having that first sip of alcohol after more than a month, we suggest you go with these cocktails to make at home. Make your night all the more interesting and social media approved! 😉

To begin with, we want to make it clear that this is not an all tequila-based cocktail list to try at your home. While we love all and every cocktail (almost) we could think only of these to make at home easily with the available resources.

Tequila Sunrise

Shawn Mendes sang it all right in the song Senorita – Sapphire moonlight, We danced for hours in the sand, Tequila sunrise…..

…and we stop there! Because that’s all we want this summer at the verandah on a lazy Sunday evening to kickstart your new week. You can make this cocktail with very minimal ingredients at home itself. Take a look at the recipe below.

How To Make Tequila Sunrise?

You need these ingredients –

  • 60ml Tequila
  • 25ml Grenadine
  • 200ml of Orange Juice

How To Make Tequila Sunrise?

Pour Tequila in a high ball or old fashioned glass. Add some orange juice and mix the two well. Put some ice cubes into the mixture. Tilt the glass a little and add the grenadine slowly to let it settle in the bottom. There you have your Tequila Sunrise!

If you are unable to procure Grenadine, don’t worry. You can make it home by boiling some sugar, Pomegranate juice, and lemon for taste. Cool it for a day or two and you can use this as a substitute for Grenadine in your Tequila Sunrise.

Grape Crush

We have a very unusual and original cocktail in this list. It is made by our very own favorite fashion and lifestyle blogger Tanusha Bajaj. A content creator and stylist by profession, Tanusha is also a well-known fashion and lifestyle blogger who loves to travel the world and tick off the many things she wants to do off her bucket list. Recently she has come up with some amazing cocktails to make at home and we have a crush on the grape one already! Check out the recipe here.

How To Make Grape Crush?

You need these ingredients –

  • Fresh black grapes
  • Lime juice
  • 50ml Vodka
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • Lemon wedges for garnish

How To Make Grape Crush?

Blend 4 ounces of grapes and 1 tbsp lime juice. Strain the purée into a glass and add simple syrup with another tbsp of lime juice. Fill it up with ice cubes. Add the vodka. Garnish with loose grapes and lemon wedges.

Don’t have simple syrup? Don’t worry! To make a simple syrup, boil equal parts of sugar and water until it becomes a mixture. Store it in the refrigerator till it cools down and you’re ready with your homemade simple syrup too!

How To Make Strawberry Daiquiri?

You need these ingredients –

  • 30ml White Rum
  • 20ml Lime Juice
  • Strawberries (two for each serving)
  • 30ml Simple Syrup
  • Salt and Lemon to garnish

How To Make Strawberry Daiquiri?

Firstly, you need to freeze the strawberries for an hour or two. Next, you take the white rum into a blending vessel. Add some lime juice and simple syrup to this mixture. Then add the strawberries to it and crush it all along. Pour it into the glasses and you’re in for some tasty Daquiri!

Don’t worry if you do not have simple syrup at home. It’s as simple as its name to make! All you need is an equal amount of water and sugar and the fruit you choose! You can also make a honey simple syrup by replacing the fruit with honey. While heating the sugar and water together, add your fruit zest and simmer it for 20mins and cool it for using it in your Daiquiri!

Long Island Iced Tea

For all the people who went all out while buying your alcohol, we have the coolest and everybody’s favorite cocktail. You only need to have it once and you’re all good to go for the best evening at home!

How To Make Long Island Iced Tea?

While most of you already know this, we will still go through the process to make it the best LIIT! Mix all the alcohol together well. Pour it into a glass filled with ice, preferably high ball. Add the coke from above and you’re all ready with this cocktail to rock the party!

Espresso Martini

For all you alcohol and coffee lovers here is by far the best cocktails to make at home. We personally love this combination ourselves! The only extra ingredient you have to procure is the Coffee Liqueur. Here is what you need and how to make it.

How To Make Espresso Martini?

You need these ingredients –

  • 60ml of Vodka
  • 15ml of Simple Syrup
  • 30ml of Freshly Brewed Espresso
  • 15ml of Coffee Liqueur
  • Coffee beans to garnish

How To Make Espresso Martini?

Bring in your blender and add all the ingredients with ice cubes into it. Make sure that you maintain the quantities given above for an amazing taste. If you like your coffee stronger add more espresso. If you are more inclined to alcohol you can reduce the amount of simple syrup for a strong taste.

While it is also possible to make the coffee liqueur at home, we prefer not to do that because it might spoil the taste of the drink. You can mix 4 spoons of instant coffee with 10 tablespoons of water for one serving of the Espresso Martini.

Tequila Way!
