Add some romance and make this drink to get you and your partner hot and heavy for the night. Combine 0.75 oz. Leopold’s Gin, 0.75 oz. Remy Martin VSOP Cognac, 0.75 oz. orange liqueur, and 0.75 oz. lemon juice in a mixing glass. Make sure to strain the lemon juice first and add crushed ice. Strain once more and shake. Nothing says “I love you” more than a drink that gets you high on life.

I know, I know! Everyone knows how easy and simple this is, but then again, pirates do love rum. So, there must be something extremely special about this drink. Get your favorite brand of rum and mix some cola in it. Add some ice and get hooked on this rather simple yet tasty drink. And before you even say something, no, this drink isn’t boring at all. In fact, it’ll make you go, “Aaaaargh” with excitement. Soon enough, you’ll be singing “Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum!” in a chorus of excitement.

Who says you can only drink at night? Need something to kick-start your day? This is the drink of choice. Just bring out that blender and put in a little bit of effort into preparing your coffee. First off, pour sweetened and condensed milk and a cup of heavy cream in a 14-ounce container. Crack eggs and pour as desired into the blender. And mask that alcohol with some chocolate syrup, 2 teaspoons of espresso, and some vanilla and almond extracts. Before you start drinking this, open a bottle of Jameson Irish Whiskey and pour half of that into the blender. Don’t worry, the coffee and vanilla extracts have masked the scent of alcohol. Store in your refrigerator once you’ve blended the mix into a nice, soft, cream. Just make sure to finish your supply within 30 days or let your stomach pay the price for drinking spoilt milk. You’ll definitely have a lot of fun mornings with the Irish Cream in your arsenal.

This is probably one of the most popular drinks made by those who live in countries where alcohol has been banned. Get ready to burn a trail down your throat with this one because this potent, undiluted alcohol gives you beer goggles within seconds. And a word of warning before you make this: surround yourself with people you’re attracted to. You don’t want to wake up the next day lying beside a person whose face makes you want to barf over and over again. Now that we’ve got the essentials covered, grab a few pounds of cheap sugar. Dump this in a vat of water and bring the mix to a boil. Leave some room for the CO2 from the yeast to escape. Give it time to ferment – around 10 to 25 days. Run the mix through a still. If you’re not familiar with this, I’m sure you’ll have the energy to check out our guide to making moonshine. Now, your moonshine’s ready and so are you! And before I forget, add courage into the mix because you’re definitely bound to do something crazy and regrettable. A few glasses of this and you’ve just given yourself the world’s most potent anesthetic.

This is actually perfect after you’ve finished your supply of Moonshine. That’s because you’ve already killed half your liver enzymes, and this is your way paying your respects.  You need 2 oz. Leopold’s Gin, 0.25 oz. dry vermouth, and 0.25 oz. Absinthe. The last one in the mix will make you see the green fairy. If you don’t know what this means, watch Moulin Rouge and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Why buy a bottle when you can very well make your own? The process of making red wine is actually a lot easier than you think. All you need to do is crush grapes into a pulp. This serves as the base of the wine. Add yeast, sugar, and experiment with the rest. There are no hard and fast rules to making wine. Just add whatever you think tickles your fancy. Allow the mix to ferment for about a week and then filter out the skin, seeds, and pulp pieces. Ferment the mix longer and bottle it for 6 to 24 months. Yes, it does take long. If you tend to be rather impatient, then don’t even attempt to make this. I suggest that you simply run to the nearest convenience store and purchase a bottle. But if you like experimenting with flavors, coming up with an end product that tastes good, making red wine is extremely rewarding.

Now that you have the ten best homemade drinks, it’s time that you experiment with each and every one of these recipes. Turn this hobby into a full-time obsession. Your friends will love you for it. More importantly, there’s never going to be a dull moment even when you’re alone. These make perfect companions. They don’t complain when you’re too busy to say hi, whine when you come home too late, or bitch you out when you’ve forgotten to take out the trash. The alcoholic drinks are there to make you happy. And if you’re sick of them, put them in a bottle and give them to your friends. You certainly won’t hear the drinks complaining.
