If you are anything like me, you are intimidated by mixology. Seated at the bar, gazing in silent awe as your favourite libation is skillfully built before your eyes, admiring how easy it looks, but understanding it takes years of practice to master. It is a spectacle for sure and a feast for the senses. While it is enjoyable to have an expert prepare your beverage, it can also be fun to create your own concoctions in the comfort of your own home.

For me, the simpler the better. If it has more than three ingredients, I would rather have someone else make it for me. One of my all-time favourites is the ubiquitous Old Fashioned. It is as delicious as it is simple. From Whisky Sours to Aperol Spritz, the cocktail options are endless. Fortunately, so are the resources to learn to make your own drinks.

Aside from a good old reliable Google search, online resources such as and offer a plethora of recipes and inspirations. Also, don’t forget to ask your friendly neighbourhood Product Knowledge Consultants. If we don’t have the answer to your question, we can definitely point you in the right direction. If you were to ask me, my latest go-to is any of our selection of Ready-to-Serve cocktails. Take a look below for some examples of those, as well as some staples to keep in stock for your home bar.
