One of my favorite pastimes during this Safer at Home order has been taste-testing all of the fun cocktails my boyfriend has been making at home. It's one of the small luxuries that I have been indulging in, bringing a little bit of the outside world, inside. I wanted to share some of my favorite cocktails that he has made, inspired by places around the world. Pro tip: whip up one of these cocktails, get comfy, and check out all of the cool places you can travel to from the comfort of your couch while sipping on your cocktail!

French 75

Origin: The French 75 originated during WWI, with the first written reference dating back to 1915. It was named after the French 75-millimeter light field gun. Originally named "Soixante-Quinze," this drink represented hope in the battle against Germany.

  • 0.75 oz of simple syrup
  • 0.75 oz of lemon juice

Singapore Sling

Origin: The Singapore Sling was developed sometime before 1915, by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon. He worked at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel in Singapore. This drink varies from person to person, so feel free to make the recipe your own!

  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
