Stirring or shaking cocktails in your own kitchen is so much fun and a whole lot easier than you might think. In fact, once you start making cocktails at home, you may never go out to that fancy bar again. (Who needs to pay $12 for a cocktail when you can make one at home for a fraction of the price?)
While the possibilities of what you can pour in your glass are nearly endless, learning how to make the most classic drinks is the best place to start. So reach for this list of 20 classics whenever you feel like being your own bartender. Make them a few times and you’ll know them by heart.
