Fun time drink/cocktail recipes
Here are a list of drinks that are fun and easy to make when you're hosting your next party. Some have dirty names and that's even more fun. Knowing how to make a few go-to cocktails (and what you need for them) is always good information to have, even if it's just to answer a Jeopardy question.
Drink mixing is all about proportions. A four count (think one and two and three and four) will be roughly one shot, if you're using a pour top, and this will help you to mix drink ingredients in the right ratio.
For a Margarita the magic formula is 3 parts tequila, 1 part triple sec, lime juice, sour mix, and a splash of OJ. If you want to go frozen, purchase a mix, and follow the directions on the box/container, and omit the sour mix, lime juice, and splash of OJ.
