Easy Peasy Cocktails

We love making simple and delicious cocktails here at The Uncorked Librarian. We are not pro cocktail makers, but we are pro drinkers.

Below, find our easy peasy cocktail recipes that anyone can make at home. Many are inspired by our favorite books.

We try to limit our cocktail making and recipes to basic cocktail ingredients that you already have in your fridge and pantry or ones that you can replicate.

We also love working together with and showcasing our local wineries, meaderies, and distilleries. Please drink responsibly.

Don’t miss our Literary-Inspired Cocktails, too.
