There’s no better way to bring friends together than throwing a cocktail party. Here are a couple of classy cocktail recipes that are sure to stun your friends at the next get-together. You might even want to sip on these delectable drinks as you and your friends enjoy a few UFABET games or sports wagers online.

#1 Rum Cobbler

The best thing about cobbler cocktails is the freshness. Cobblers are perfect for warmer weather, and you will enjoy a Rum Cobbler if you prefer to stay away from the stronger stuff:


  • 3 oz aged rum
  • ¾ oz Simple syrup


Fill a red wine glass with ice, adding the rum and Simple syrup. Stir the mix vigorously for one minute until the glass looks frosty. Garnish the refreshing cocktail with pineapple wedges, orange slices, lemon slices, and maraschino cherries.

#2 Clementine Martini

A Clementine Martini is a popular Vodka cocktail with Prosecco, Cointreau, and freshly squeezed clementine. It is a terrific tangy taste that’s just right for a laid-back social setting.


  • 6 juiced clementines, plus 2 for serving
  • 100ml Cointreau
  • 100ml Vodka
  • 1 bottle Prosecco, chilled well


Place Martini glasses in the freezer, and mix the clementine juice, Cointreau, and vodka in a jug. Chill the mixture for at least one hour, then slice the two clementines thinly for garnish. Serve with a clementine slice at the bottom of the frosty glass, filling it almost halfway with the chilled mixture and topping it off with the Prosecco.

#3 Tom and Jerry

The Tom and Jerry cocktail is tasty, bubbly, and warm. The cognac and dark rum flavours have made it a holiday favourite since the 19th century.


  • 2 eggs
  •  ¾ pound superfine sugar
  •  ½ oz dark rum
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 12 oz brandy
  • 12 oz aged rum
  • 48 oz hot water


Whip the egg whites until stiff. In another bowl, whip the yolks and then fold in the egg white. Add rum, cloves, cinnamon, and allspice, and whip with sugar to form a light batter. Pour an ounce each of brandy and aged rum into one tablespoon of the egg batter and stir before adding the hot water; then stir it again before serving.

#4 The Red Carpet

New York restaurants serve The Red Carpet cocktail to celebrate the annual Academy Awards. It looks even classier than it sounds, thanks to a dusting of gold leaf.


  • 1 oz. vodka
  • 2 oz. fresh bergamot juice
  • 2 teaspoon pear jam
  • 1⁄2 oz. simple syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 (1/4″) piece of ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • Angostura bitters
  • Edible gold garnish


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add vodka, juice, ginger, syrup, jam, and egg white, shake well and strain into chilled martini glasses. Dress it up with gold and bitters, and serve with flair.

#5 Cucumber Martinis

A classic martini is another sophisticated and refreshing cocktail for entertaining your friends.


  • 50ml sugar syrup
  • 10 thin cucumber slices, plus 4 ribbons
  • Mint
  • 1 tablespoon dry vermouth
  • 150ml gin


Mix ingredients in the cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake well, and strain it into chilled glasses. Garnish with the cucumber ribbons threaded onto a cocktail stick.
