Making cocktails at home should be simple and easy. I try to keep a few basics on hand to make quick cocktails anytime people come over, or if I’m in need of a change from my go-to wines. Beer Shandys, Moscow Mules and Tequila with lime are simple cocktails to make at home that aren’t super complicated and are a fresh change of pace. Give these cocktails a try and put your twist on it. Recipes below!
