Drink Recipes: Qream Liqueur Cocktails Served At NYC Launch Party

Quite frankly, there usually aren’t many drink recipes for the cream liqueurs on the market. When it comes to cream liqueurs you usually throw in a few ice cubes, stir it up a bit, and call it a day. But after doing a bit of research I came across three interesting cocktails that are created using the brand new Qream Liqueur. And if you don’t have a serious sweet tooth you may want to pass on these recipes.

Drink Recipes: “El Cuervo Fresco” (Yea, I Made That Name Up)

As far as I know this particular recipe doesn’t have a name and I don’t see why anything so delicious should go nameless. It’s just unfair. So make sure you refer to this drink as the “El Cuervo Fresco” if you ever want to order it at the bar. I’m so glad I was able to come across this cocktail while at an event because I would have never thought to combine tequila and lemonade. It’s almost similar to a margarita but much tastier in my opinion. And if you’re a fan of margaritas, but hate the bitter taste then you are going to absolutely love this drink. It’s not bitter at all and the Jose Cuervo Platino really makes for a smooth drink.

INGREDIENTS

8fl oz. Jose Cuervo Platino

2½ pints lemonade

2 lemons (sliced thin)

Ice

DIRECTIONS 

Mix Jose Cuervo Platino, lemonade, and sliced lemons in a large jug. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve then pour into six short tumblers of ice.

Drink Recipes: Diddy’s Latest Ciroc Concoction

If you follow Diddy on Twitter chances are you’re very, VERY familiar with the fact that he’s the celebrity spokesperson for Ciroc Vodka. I actually unfollowed Diddy on Twitter awhile back, he was just a little too on the annoying side. But thankfully though one of my followers ReTweeted this interesting Ciroc cocktail recipe Diddy came up with. It’s called “The Diddle Skittle” and according to Diddy it’s like a “rainbow explosion in yo’ mouth.” Don’t worry, he of course threw in a necessary “pause” after that description. Check out the ingredients below in the Tweet posted. I would have posted an exact recipe, but this cocktail concoction already sounds a little sketchy so you guys are going to have to guess when it comes to the amounts for each ingredient. Good luck, I feel like you might need it lol.

4 Reasons Why You Should Try Courvoisier Rosé

It’s Not Your Average Cognac – A lot of people are turned off by the strong taste of cognac and I won’t name names, but a lot of people can’t handle their cognac either. But unlike most cognac’s Courvoisier Rosé offers a much more smooth, refreshing taste. And if you’ve yet to try cognac before this would be a great starting point.

It’s Easy On The Wallet – At only $24.99 for a 750ml bottle Courvoisier Rosé really is a steal. So feel free to spend that extra dough you saved on some snackage.

Mixer? What Mixer? – Courvoisier Rosé is one of few liquors that can really be enjoyed by itself or on the rocks. With notes of blackberry, black currant, and a touch of cherry as well as vanilla, honey, and vine-peach flavors you can see why Courvoisier Rosé can easily be enjoyed sans the mixers.

Appease The Picky – I’m sure we’ve all had that moment when you found yourself feeling overwhelmed in the liquor store because you have absolutely no idea what to buy for a friends dinner/house party. Since Courvoisier Rosé is made from both Courvoisier cognac and premium French red wine grapes it really is an ideal choice. You’ve got both your wine lovers and cognac connoisseurs covered with just one product.

If you find yourself wanting to give Courvoisier Rosé a shot feel free to check out one of the recipes below. I feel like the “Pink Slipper” has my name written all over it.
