Cocktail master mixologist Charles Joly is here with three amazingly delish cocktails that you can make with ingredients you are likely to already have in your cupboard!

No. 1: Molassacre Punch

For this yummy party drink, Charles blends Jamaican rum, red wine, fresh lemon juice, a bit of red currant jelly and a homemade green tea-ginger syrup. Bottoms up!

No. 2: Eve’s Answer

Charles calls this tasty drink a “cool weather version of a margarita.” The cocktail features reposado tequila, apple cider, fresh lemon juice and spiced raisin syrup served over cranberry and sweet vermouth ice. Sign us up!

No. 3: Kentucky Joe

This bonus cocktail Charles shared exclusively for our web visitors is based on a classic New Orleans cocktail and is a warm drink with the main ingredient being strong coffee! Charles mixes all the ingrients in a pot on the stove: coffee, bourbon, Galliano liqueur, cinnamon and other baking spices, citrus peel and honey. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve. Perfect belly-warming cocktail!
