This Retro Cocktail Is Always a Hit at PartiesRecipes
I was greeted in the kitchen by a giant honeydew melon sitting on the counter emitting a deliciously sweet aroma, which immediately made me think, we need to eat or drink this now! I took to the challenge and in my own cocktail quickfire, I reached for the glowing green bottle of Midori on the bar. Typically I use Midori, a melon flavored liqueur, for all sorts of fun Halloween drinks. But, today I was craving a classic cocktail, the Melon Ball. Here’s how to make it.

This Red Sangria Is the Best Make-Ahead Cocktail for SummerRecipes
Here at The Kitchn, we are firm believers in the power of sangria. Whether you serve it in the spring, in the summer, in the fall, or in the winter, sangria is the perfect make-ahead cocktail. Pull a pitcher from the fridge as guests arrive and no one needs much encouragement to start pouring glasses. It feels fancy and instantly festive, but sangria is also one of the easiest big-batch cocktails you can make. As the party host, it’s a no-brainer.

Traditionally served in a silver cup that gets beautifully frosty on the outside from copious amounts of crushed ice, it’s perfect for sipping on hot summer days (even if you’re not watching the Kentucky Derby).You may associate mint juleps with the Kentucky Derby and those cute silver cups, but it actually has a much longer history.

These Easy Pitcher Mint Juleps Are Always a Hit at My Derby PartyRecipes
Do you love a mint julep as much as I do? This classic cocktail always seems to have the right amount of minty sweetness, just enough fizz, and a strong bourbon flavor. It’s a near-perfect sip on a hot porch in summertime. Kentuckians in particular have strong opinions about what should and should not go into a julep cup.

To make one, simply mix vodka or grappa with an equal amount of milk and sugar. We love the idea of making our own liqueurs, and we’ve been wanting to try this milk liqueur ever since we saw it in David Leite’s most recent book The New Portuguese Table.
