2021 is shaping up to be an unusual year, with much to celebrate and also a lot to think about. To make 2021 truly special, it helps to have the right cocktails at celebratory events! You’ll find that the top 8 cocktails that we’ve listed below are generally the classics – the kind of cocktails you expect to hear people ordering in movies, and in the very bars and restaurants you might frequent in your own town. Each recipe is best when you use the best ingredients. Enjoy!
1. Espresso Martini
The espresso martini is one part caffeine, one part sugar and one part glorious vodka! Of course we suggest using ONE ROQ vodka for a smooth finish and well-rounded flavor.
- 1 part Kahlúa
- 1 part ONE ROQ vodka
- 1 part Espresso
Shake the ingredients with ice. Use real espresso to make your martini. If you’re not able to use espresso from an espresso machine, your drink may not produce a froth on top. To create the effect of froth on your drink, add egg white. Float three espresso beans on the drink’s froth for effect.
2. Vodka Martini
Gin martinis were the original martini drink, but vodka martinis may be even more popular than the original! This famous cocktail is equally sophisticated and tasty.
- 3 ounces ONE ROQ vodka
- 1 ounce dry vermouth (or St Germaine elderflower liqueur, if vermouth just isn’t your thing)
