Cocktails Anyone?

Shaking up the party with cocktails from your travels

My best friend tames her tension with a big apple martini mixed with a weekend at the spa. I’m good with anything that involves tequila, good music and friends. We may be BFF’s but we’re totally unique when it comes to adult drinks.

Cocktails Anyone?Cocktails Anyone?Whether you’re into wild nights that stretch until dawn or secluded beachhouses with nothing between you and the stars, that special something that makes your tastebuds zing can make – or break – a getaway.

At the Westin La Cantera Resort I acquainted myself with cactus pear margaritas, but California was all about the sangria. And it’s frustrating to replay the cocktails at home without a good recipe. Sure, Google is a good standby, but when it comes to cocktails, I want the recipe fast.

CocktailTimes.com is my new BFF. I love that everything is within easy reach and there’s no mumbo jumbo involved with the recipes.Yes, I’m recipe challenged at the best of times! If you’re a true cocktail aficionado, you’ll enjoy all the articles that range from the history of your favorite drinks to informative articles about barware.

Be warned that the site is very busy though and sprinkled with irritating flashing ads. But for the ability to find all my cocktail recipes in one space, it’s an annoyance I’m willing to overlook.

Think I’ll try some sunshine in a shaker – Pog Punch anyone?

Got another online destination for cocktail recipes? I’d love to hear it!
