Doubly Good Cocktails

Posted: 09/06/2012 2:35 pm

Outside of a college fraternity party, it's a bit unusual (and perhaps painful) to think about mixing one liquor with another. Even though we don't make a habit of imbibing Jungle Juice or Long Island Iced Tea these days, there are a number of proper cocktails that call for two different kinds of alcohol.

While these drinks may be potent, the combination of spirits can make for a delicious and complex tipple. So to help you double your fun, we've put together a list of five of our favorite recipes that prove two types of liquor can certainly be better than one.

Cheers!

"But I do like that one to be large and very strong and very cold and very well-made."
