Ah, cocktails, the territory of Betty in Mad Men.

Cocktails are fun and so much more sophisticated and interesting than wine. And they can be a wonderful conversation starter.

So when you are ready to have your next social gathering set up a cocktail station, everyone will love it!!

Some of these recipes call for “simple syrup”: don’t be afraid! It’s called “simple” for a reason:

A divine friend gave me Moscow Mule mugs a while ago. I had never tasted this cocktail before and now I am obsessed!! It is so amazing!!
