It's a day when enthusiasts around the world raise a glass to the art of mixology. To get you into the spirit of this delightful day, we've curated a list of five cocktail recipes for you to try.

Classic Margarita

The classic margarita is a perfect blend of sweet and sour, with the freshness of lime and the bite of tequila. To make this, you'll need 2 ounces of tequila, 1 ounce of lime juice, and 1 ounce of Cointreau. Shake all the ingredients with ice, strain into a glass (optionally rimmed with salt), and garnish with a lime wheel.

Old Fashioned

An Old Fashioned is a timeless classic that exudes sophistication. To make this cocktail, muddle a sugar cube, a splash of water, and two dashes of Angostura bitters in a glass. Add ice and 2 ounces of bourbon. Stir well, then garnish with an orange twist and a cherry.


Bringing the flavors of the Caribbean to your glass, the Mojito is a refreshing blend of rum, mint, and lime. Combine 2 ounces of white rum, 1 ounce of fresh lime juice, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and a handful of mint leaves in a glass. Muddle the mint into the lime juice and sugar, then add the rum and fill the glass with crushed ice. Stir well and top with soda water.


The Negroni is a favorite for gin lovers, with an equal balance of bitter and sweet. To make this cocktail, you'll need 1 ounce each of gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. Combine all the ingredients over ice in a glass, stir, and garnish with an orange twist.

Espresso Martini

Last but not least, the Espresso Martini is a coffee lover's dream. Mix 2 ounces of vodka, 1 ounce of Kahlua, and 1 ounce of freshly brewed espresso in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well, strain into a martini glass, and garnish with three coffee beans.
