Simple and Delicious Cocktails to Make at Home

by Kevin Smith Author

If you love cocktails but hate how expensive they are at bars, try making your own. Though it may seem like only a trained bartender can make decent cocktails, many of the favorites are easy to make and only require a couple of ingredients. Here are a few cocktails whose ingredients can be found at the closest liquor store in Suwanee, GA.

Gin and Tonic

Gin and tonic is exactly what it sounds like, gin mixed with tonic water. This is often a favorite for gin drinkers, and can be adapted in many different ways. You can easily add a lime to garnish, or swap out the tonic for club soda if you prefer a less sweet drink. You can also make this drink with vodka instead of gin, and then it becomes a vodka and tonic.

Cape Codder

Another two-ingredient favorite, a cape codder, is often known by its other name, a vodka cranberry, precisely because those are the two ingredients that make up this tasty drink. Similar to the gin and tonic, the cape codder welcomes variations such as garnishes or adding splashes of other juices.


This classic drink is simpler than you may have previously believed. The martini also only consists of two ingredients, either vodka or gin and vermouth. However, the variations are endless and accommodate any taste imaginable. To make a martini the way you like it, try including bitters, including a garnish, or adding splashes of other liquors.

Dark and Stormy

Perfect for many occasions, a dark and stormy can be enjoyed on a hot day or a rainy night. This drink includes dark rum, ginger beer, and a slice of lime. Similar drinks include using whiskey instead of rum, and Moscow mules that uses vodka instead of rum. Ginger beer apparently goes with everything.


The mojito is the perfect summertime drink, and easy to make as strong or weak as you’d like. This drink includes muddled mint, lime, and sugar, topped with ice, rum and club soda. The fresh mint and lime combination create an extremely refreshing cocktail.


A negroni is a satisfying gin drink that is made by mixing gin with sweet vermouth and Campari. The unique ingredient of Campari is an Italian invention that has a sweet, orange, and herbal flavor. Campari can be found in many delicious cocktails, and is also often enjoyed on its own. The negroni is often served over ice and garnished with an orange peel.

The next time you want a cocktail, visit the closest liquor store in Suwanee, GA, and make your own. Remember that many of these simple cocktails can be tweaked to your liking, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
