New Year. New Cocktails. 5 Cocktail Recipes To Try In 2017

I’m a firm believer of trying new things, especially when it comes to cocktails.  I think it’s great that some of my friends have a “house” wine or drink.  Something that they in essence, always have on tap at their house and friends get to know.  However with a new year starting, I also think it’s good to mix things up a bit!  Expand your cocktail horizon.  These 5 cocktail recipes only deviate slightly from the norm, adding a new twist to the same old drink recipes we all know.

I love this cute and colorful drink, grapefruit fizz because it’s so light and still tasty!  Also I’m not much of a bartender and this cocktail recipe is super easy.  I added a splash of cranberry juice to mine to give a cosmopolitan twist.  Grab the recipe below or at We Are Not Martha blog.

  • Sugar (colored if you want) for glass rim
  • 1.5 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1.5 oz. grapefruit vodka
  • 2 oz. Polar Ruby Red Grapefruit Seltzer
