7 Easy Cocktails To Make From Home
By Chioma Okwu

If you love to mix your drinks (beer or juice) then you wouldn't find it difficult to master or want to try out these easy cocktail recipes you can make from the comfort of your home. You don't need to visit the bar every Friday or Sunday night you thirst for a fine blend; sit at home and be your own bartender.

We who love to mix drinks at home do it for many reasons: First off, it's cheaper than drinking out (that I already stated). Second, it's fun to mix your own drinks at home. Third, it's even more fun to mix drinks for friends and family.

Any self-respecting home bartender should have a mental Excel spreadsheet of favorite classic cocktail recipes. Even if they aren't fully memorized, you should be able to find the recipe in your home library or google at quick notice to serve them to your friends and yourself of course.

Here are a list of seven easy cocktails to try out as soon as possible!
