For much of my early adulthood I lived in condos and town homes that left much to be desired in the way of space for entertaining. Now that we are home owners and have the ideal layout for having friends over for happy hour, I’ve become curious about how to create craft cocktails to enjoy with our guests. I admit I have never been the eager chef, however I really enjoy putting together creative drinks. I’ve enjoyed my fair share of crafted drinks at many of the travel destinations and food reviews I’ve covered in the past so now I’m having fun trying to recreate some of my favorites. Although I see myself as more of an amateur entertainer than Martha Stewart type, I think it just goes to show that anyone (no matter how basic the skill set) can enjoy getting a little creative in the kitchen. These easy recipes are a perfect start for those of you interested in learning how to create craft cocktails.
