Top 6 Cocktail Recipes For New Year


This New Year, steal all the compliments and put them on your plate because these cocktail recipes are quite easy to master and taste amazing. 

(1) Margarita

This refreshing drink is appropriate for you as a beginner. Its flavour comes out of its simplicity itself. All you need is to know the balance between the classy tequila and the lemons. Once you make it, you’ll realise how fresh it seems compared to a bottled margarita.  



  • Lime wedge
  • Coarse salt or granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ ounce tequila
  • Premium Triple Sec (Orange flavoured liqueur)
  • ¾ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice


  • Take a cocktail glass, wet a rim with a lime wedge, put it into the salt bowl, and you’ll get the desired salty rim
  • Mix the tequila, triple sec, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Shake well.
  • Serve it in a cocktail glass with lime wedge garnishing (add ice cubes, if required)

(2) Amaretto Sour

An Italian liquor flavoured with almonds or apricot stones does wonders at the party. Its sweet and sour taste is best to get a bad rap. Jeffrey Morgenthaler’s take has given it a different look altogether. Adding the egg white at the top makes it stronger. Your Amaretto Sour should taste frosty, sweet yet sour, nutty and of course, strong.


  • 1 1/2 ounces amaretto liquor 
  • 3/4 ounce cask-proof bourbon
  • 1-ounce lemon juice
  • 1-teaspoon simple syrup
  • 1/2 ounce egg white

  • Garnish with a lemon twist and brandied cherries
