It may not be Friday yet, but we’re already dreaming about the weekend … and 40 fun cocktails to make at home!
We’ve included four basic spirits in this roundup:
Sometimes you just want a delicious, frozen cocktail (even if it’s cold outside), and this frozen sweet and salty dog hits the spot everytime.
We love a good at-home vodka martini, but novelty martinis are more fun, don’t you think?
We have plenty of novelty martini recipes to share, like this easy at-home chocolate martini.

If you love peppermint, you have to make a peppermint White Russian with a crushed candy cane rim. We can’t think of a better cocktail for the holiday season!
Looking for a non-dairy White Russian recipe? We’ve got you covered.
Cosmopolitans feel very Sex and The City, don’t they? We love the idea of sipping on a pink cosmo in front of the TV (in pajamas, of course).
Tequila Cocktails (AKA Margaritas):
OK, we’ll admit it …we love all kinds of margaritas. But we’re pretty adamant about the kind of mix we use. It has to be homemade margarita mix, all the way.
It’s easy to make and so much better than the store-bought kind. Here’s a little recipe video for our homemade margarita mix:
If you prefer frozen margaritas, we have several options like a frozen mango margarita, spicy watermelon mezcal margarita, frozen avocado margarita, and frozen hibiscus margarita. These are all winners in our book!
And, if you’ve never had a toasted coconut margarita before … the time is now!
Moving on to rum cocktails, we thought we would start with something fun and fancy like this triple tiki rum punch.
There’s nothing like a refreshing mint mojito—especially when you’re craving summer weather or a patio. Bonus points if you have both of those things as you’re reading this!
The combination of cinnamon and nutmeg makes this frozen vanilla bean bushwacker such a treat.
We guarantee you’ve never had a mai tai like this mango mai tai with fresh mango slices, homemade orgeat, and raw sugar. Cheers!
Our love for a good hot toddy is very strong—so much that we have several recipes we want you to try. But first, we need to start with our classic go-to hot toddy recipe.
Whiskey sours are a no-brainer, especially when they’re made with homemade sour mix. If you love peaches (and they’re in season), you’re going to go crazy over the recipe above—it’s a peach and basil whiskey sour!
This boozy apple cider à la mode tastes exactly like what fall feels like.
Emma’s favorite old fashioned is a smoke and cinnamon old fashioned, and it’s perfect for a cold snowy night.
A cocktail for dessert? Yes, please. Here’s the recipe for an incredible mint julep milkshake.
If you love a good whiskey sour but want something a little different, this golden rush cocktail is the best (especially the homemade honey syrup).
If you’re looking for mocktail recipes, we have plenty of those too! Cheers to you, friends. -The ABM team
