danielle’s cookbook

kitchen witch

My collection of go-to recipes here because: I never print anything anymore, my Pinterest got too jam-packed with dishes I never actually made, and ain’t nobody got time for finding screenshots of recipes in my phone’s photos. A work in progress, and will update with pics of the cooking process and finished product as I make my way through re-making dishes from this collection!

**Right now this is mostly just a list to remind me of the recipes I want to find and type up, will change to links as I make the posts, or, I’ve included links to recipes I’ve collected from elsewhere online and pretty much make as described.

VODKA

As a general rule, take any juice or fizzy flavored water and can make a mixed drink with vodka.

  • Homemade “Cherry Limeade” (copycat Sonic’s)
  • Lemon Drop Martini
  • Dirty Shirley

TEQUILA

Quick ideas for tequila include an easy tequila sunrise with just OJ, or fast marg with splash of sweet & sour.

  • 3-2-1 Margarita
  • Tequila Shot with Cinnamon-sugar Orange slice

BOURBON // Whiskey

Jack & Coke is a good go-to when you’re not sure what else sounds good, this usually does the trick.

  • Mint Julep
  • OG Old-Fashioned

RUM

Ditto to whiskey, rum and coke is great too.

  • Classic Daiquiri

GIN

Gin Martinis are my preference over vodka for sure.

  • Basil Lime Gimlet
  • Basil Smash
  • “A Simple Favor” Martini with a generous lemon twist
  • Dirty Martini with just the olive juice, no actual olives
