Last weekend, my friend Jill and I officially declared that 2016 will be the year we really, truly try some new fancy drinks (fancy, but easy). We’ve had good intentions for the last two years, and we’ve definitely tried one or two here and there, but this year we want to branch out and get creative! I’ve even been building a Drinks To Try board on Pinterest for the past year, yet have only tried maybe one or two of the recipes. So, today I’ve rounded up 20 must-try fancy drinks for 2016!
I’ll preface my picks only with this. I’m not usually a dark liquor drinker and I tend to love grapefruit, coconut or lime based drinks. But, I’ve really tried to branch out here, as well! Simply click the link to be taken to the full description and recipe. If you try any out, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
5 – The Violet Hour
6 – Caipirinhas
9 – Aperol Spritz (I drank these in Italy and they were an acquired taste – one I definitely acquired)!
11 – Pink Dream Cocktail
13 – Guava Sangria
15 – Blueberry Lemondrop
18 – Tuscan Pear Cocktail
Granted, it may be a bad idea to set a goal focused around drinking more frequently, but hey – it’s probably better than all the beer we’d drink otherwise 😉 So, are there any on this list you’re dying to try? Any others I need to add and try?
