smoky martini

Smoky Martini

The mixology world has gone crazy for smoked cocktails. One of our favorites is the Smoky Martini! It's a twist on the classic martini made with scotch whisky and dry gin. This drink can be made in minutes and will make you feel like James Bond himself when he orders his famous Vesper Martini. Get the recipe here.

spicy paloma

Spicy Paloma

The mixologists at Middleton Mixology know that where there's smoke, there's fire. If you're looking for a lit afternoon drink, then look no further than the Spicy Paloma! It's a mix of grapefruit, lime juice, and jalapeno-infused vodka or simple syrup that will keep you dancing all afternoon long! Get the simple recipe here.


whiskey old fashioned

Old Fashioned

The Old Fashioned is the perfect cocktail for home mixologists because it uses simple ingredients but can be made in countless ways depending on who makes them. We like to use bourbon, mix it with bitters and simple syrup, then garnish it with an orange peel. There are tons of variations on this drink that you can try out, and it should be a staple in your mixologist repertoire!

French 75

The French 75 is the perfect cocktail for home mixologists because it uses champagne as its base instead of whiskey or gin like most other drinks do. This mix is made up of gin, simple syrup, lemon juice and champagne. It's a great drink to make for parties because it looks beautiful in the glass! You can find a simple recipe here.
