Shake and Stir in the New Year

Here are some of our top picks for unique drinks to ring in the New Year.

New Year’s Eve is upon us, and many would like to toast 2012 with an adult beverage. Of course, Patch first would like to remind you to be safe. You need be sure you won’t need to drive, and if you are heading out of the house, please call a cab or a friend.

Once your ride is established, you have plenty of options pending your taste buds for finding the perfect drink. Here are some of our top picks for unique drinks to ring in the New Year.

1. The Mimosa

Add a twist to even the most traditional beverage making it a sweet treat for your guests. Apricot/mango nectar makes this one a tasty treat.

2. The Sidecar

Not only does Epicurious.com suggest this one, but shows you with a video how to make it.

3. Rockin’ Killer Koolaid

Party like a rockstar with this fizzy, tasty treat that ironically does not in fact include that sugary powder drink mix.

4. Banana Daiquiri

If you cannot be in the tropics for the holidays, maybe faking it is the next best thing.

5. Ginger Mint Caipirinha Cocktail

If the tropics are not south enough, try this traditional Brazilian cocktail for something new.

No matter what you drink to toast the year that is gone and the new one to come, we at Patch wish you a happy and healthy New Year. Enjoy!

My father-in-law introduced me to the sidecar a few summers ago. Fantastic drink!
