Mr. and Mrs. Signature Cocktail

Signature Cocktail Inspiration


Left to Right:

  • Soft Kiss

    A take on the tried and true whiskey sour, we’ve added some orange juice to liven it up a little. The strawberry garnish adds a little punch of color.

    Serve it in a pretty cocktail glass, to give it that feminine touch


    • 1 sliced strawberry
    • 2 oz. bourbon
    • 2 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice
    • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1 tsp granulated sugar
    • 1 cup ice cubes


    In a large cocktail shaker, combine bourbon, orange juice, lemon juice, granulated sugar, and ice. Cover, and shake vigorously until all ingredients are well combined and cold. Pour into prepared glass, and garnish with sliced strawberry.

  • Gentle Hug

    Peaches and mint makes this cocktail easy to drink. The men and women will both want  a few of these delicious libations.


    • 1/2 peach, cut into thick slices
    • 3 or 4 fresh mint leaves
    • 1 lemon wedge
    • 1 oz. water
    • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
    • 2 oz. whiskey
    • 1 thin peach slice for garnish


    Muddle all ingredients except whiskey in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and whiskey. Shake and strain into an ice-filled old fashioned glass and garnish with a peach slice.

  • Handsome Hombre

    This perfect tequila cocktail was created by Camarena tequila and is simply fabulous. There are a lot of ingredients, but it is so worth it.

    • 1/2 oz. Velvet Falernum

    In a shaker, combine all ingredients except ginger beer. Shake and strain into a high ball glass over ice, adding ginger beer as you pour.

  • Sweet Señora

    This is a twist on the standard margarita recipe. The blood orange adds just enough bitter-sweet to make these go down easy. You can have fun with the garnish. The orange is a must, but you could add berries or limes too.


    • 1-1/2 oz. Silver Tequila
    • 3/4 oz. Cointreau orange liqueur
    • 1 oz. blood orange juice
    • 1/2 oz. fresh sour mix

Left to Right:

  • Dapper Gent

    • 1-1/2 oz. Campari
    • 1-1/2 oz. gin
    • Handful of ice

    In shaker combine all ingredients, shake and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.

    Garnish with the maraschino cherry.

  • Lady in Red

    Raspberries and soda water make this vodka drink amazingly refreshing. It does have a bit of prep time if you want make your own raspberry juice. It’s a little time consuming to make, but your mixologist may be able to find a few short cuts.


    • 12 oz. frozen raspberries
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 4 oz. vodka
    • 8 oz. soda water
    • Stevia drops or your favorite sweetener.
    • splash of rhubarb bitters
    • fresh raspberries (for garnish)
    • ice


    Heat raspberries with water in a sauce pan over medium high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer. Cook about 5 minutes until berries have burst and become pulpy. Strain berries over a bowl with a fine mesh sieve. Mash the berries against the sieve with the back of a spoon to release the juices.

    Chill the juice in the refrigerator until cool. This makes 2 cocktails. Using 2 highball glasses, add some ice, 4 ounces raspberry juice, 2 ounces vodka, 4 ounces soda water and a splash of rhubarb bitters. Add sweetener to taste.
