Dia de los Muertos

Updated: Dec 4, 2020

After Halloween, there is another holiday. Dia de los Muertos is a special holiday where people remember their deceased loved ones, celebrate life, and enjoy family time. I love this holiday because I love how it treats death. It treats death not as something to fear but something to accept. To create dishes and treats for your loved ones and remember memories is a wonderful way to deal with grief and to connect with the loved ones that are here with you. In honor of the holiday, I have curated a few cocktails and ideas for celebrating your loved ones even in a pandemic.



El diablo

Tom Collins/Highball



Ingredients

2 oz Tequila

3/4 oz Creme de Cassis

1/2 oz Lime juice

Top with Ginger Beer

Garnish: Lime Wedge

Recipe: in a shaker with ice, pour tequila, creme de cassis, and lime juice. Shake until cold. Pour into a Tom Collins or Highball glass with ice. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wedge.


All this and (alcohol) too

Vodka martini



Ingredients

2 oz Black Vodka

1 oz Chambord

1/2 oz Lime juice

1/2 oz Simple Syrup

Garnish: Sugar Rim

Recipe: In a shaker with ice, pour black vodka, chambord, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake until cold. Garnish with a sugar rim and optional raspberries/blackberries mix.



Agua de Goth

Champagne Cocktail

Ingredients

Cava

1/2 oz Blood orange juice

1/2 oz Orange juice

1 oz Vodka

1 oz Gin

Garnish: Orange Twist

Recipe: In a shaker with ice, pour vodka, gin, blood orange juice, and orange juice. Shake until cold. Pour into a chilled coupe glass. Top with Cava. Garnish with an orange twist.


PRO TIP: This cocktail is a variation of Agua de Valencia. It's a fun way to change up a mimosa and definitely needs fresh juice. I suggest at least one juice to be fresh and you can mix in store bought. This way you get more of the fresh oils in your cocktail. It makes a difference.



In honor of mi madre

Mule


Ingredients

2 oz Mezcal

1 oz Lime Juice

3 oz Ginger Beer

Garnish: Lime Wedge



Recipe: in a mug, pour Mezcal and lime juice over ice. Add Ginger Beer and stir. Garnish with a lime wedge.
