I am hosting an event tomorrow at a nonprofit and have promised a free sangria bar. I have three types of sangria in mind, but in the interest of saving money, I'm wondering if I can buy fewer ingredients that I can duplicate over two or all three recipes. I'm getting overwhelmed by all the potential combinations, plus a general lack of knowledge on how different liquors will mingle with certain fruit/wine flavors. Help! [more inside]
A friend brought an 18-pack of Miller Lites to our house, and we now have a bunch of excess Miller Lites nestled in our kitchen. I am wondering what kinds of cocktail recipes might make 'em more interesting. Beermosas and Micheladas are my classics for brunch, but what cocktails made with a light bland lager do YOU love? Yes, YOU; I'm asking YOU, dear reader!
What else should we do with a whole bunch of fresh raspberries before inthey mold? [more inside]
So I've been gifted a bottle of some hopped gin. What would be a great use of it? What to drink with it? I like gin, and I like hops, so I'm hoping something that makes it special. I'm just feeling like it would be a waste with just tonic. I'm not an amateur, so don't worry about complexity or technique.
I'm planning a 'cupcakes and cocktails' party next weekend, and I could use some assistance in figuring out what drinks to have on hand that won't clash horribly with what I'm serving. [more inside]

The household is throwing a small-ish cocktail party next week, and I've prepared a few homemade syrups and flavored vodkas for the occasion. Help me make the best use of them? [more inside]
I've just started drinking alcohol this year. Help me find a cocktail/drink that doesn't taste like cough syrup. [more inside]
I'm looking for a recipe book for cocktails/mixed drinks. A good starter-ish/basic book that contains plenty of recipes, maybe a bit of background. Perhaps a sort of classic, definitive recipe book? Thanks.
Cocktailfilter. I like the salty ones, which means either Bloody Mary, preferably substituting the vodka with sherry; or the magnificent Bullshot. What else is there?
What are some good cocktails and other concoctions for Bailey's Irish Cream?
