At PPM we love to throw a good party for our residents. Recently we hosted a Mixology 101 event for residents at 2756 N Pine Grove where expert mixologists showed us how to make three fall-inspired cocktails. With the gorgeous fall sunset and the city lights as our backdrop, it was indeed a great night with some incredible cocktails. See the highlight video below.
The mixologists were willing to share their secrets with us and here are recipes for three great fall cocktails to add to your repertoire!
- 1.5 ounces of Vanilla Vodka
- 1/2 ounce of Irish Cream
- 1/2 ounce of Pumpkin Spice Liqueur
- Splash of Half and Half
Combine ingredients with ice in shaker. Shake until shaker is completely cold. Pour and top with whipped cream and nutmeg.
Nutty Spiced Cider
- 1 ounce of Rum
- 1/2 ounce od Amaretto
- Apple Cider
Shake together and serve on ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Classic Old Fashioned
In the bottom of a rocks glass, muddle together:
- 1 Cherry
- 1 Orange Slice
- Pinch of Sugar
- Small dash of Bitters
Mixologist Tip: When you’re pouring liqueur, every 2 seconds with a pourer is equal to 1/2 ounce. So, 8 seconds is equal to 2 ounces.
Enjoy, drink responsibly, and have a great fall!
