Best and Easy Cocktails to make at home

Is it just me or the Cocktails are priced at insane prices? To enjoy a good cocktail without burning a hole in your pocket is now almost impossible. Even if you do decide to order one, the chances of getting what you like are not that good. 

After some brainstorming, I realised that the perfect solution lies just ahead- BE your own bartender! Being your own bartender and making your drinks at home will give you the independence to customize your drink all the way through! Ice or no ice, any fancy syrup or cold-pressed juice, overloading on the olives- it is all in your hands! After this, you can also head over to the amazing food recipe blog of foodism to find out more about the cocktail trends of 2022! Now let us look at some recipes for easy cocktails to make at home.
