You don’t need a special occasion or social event to enjoy your homemade cocktail. If you want to turn a boring Friday night into a solo party or need to unwind after a long week at work, then relax with a glass of drink.

Indulge yourself with your own delicious cheap cocktail while you stare at the stars, the screen, or flip through pages of a book. Pair your drink with warm crusty bread, pizza, or any bites available. You can also make it a self-care session by pairing your drink session with DIY facials. If you want something more lively, activate a celebratory mood by playing some music, and maybe move your body to the tunes.

Now it’s the best time to enjoy cocktails in your home, so get the liquor, the ice, and mix things up.



Morning Glory Cocktail

























Prep Time: 5 minutes  
Yield: 1 drink 

A morning glory cocktail has attitude and is a classic cocktail. The recipe for this drink comes from an edition of Jerry Thomas’ “Bar-Tenders Guide” from 1887, and it’s said to be one of the “hair of the dog” hangover cures from the early years. There’s no doubt that it is a powerful drink-in both flavor and alcohol content-and if you are drinking it first thing in the morning, you might not want to get much done. Honestly, this is one of the best drinks you can get.


This cocktail combines a spicy rye whiskey with a smooth cognac (“brandy” was suggested by Thomas) and a whole host of other flavors. An orange curaçao will give you a sweet citrus taste; club soda will fizz; bitters will add a dash of depth; and absinthe will sweeten all of the flavors here. In the beginning, it was made with Gomme syrup, but today it’s made with simple syrup.


A drink with too much of any one flavor can easily lose its balance because they cover the spectrum of flavors found in the bar. It’s especially important to measure out the absinthe, so making a great morning glory cocktail begins with measuring every component.



  • One ounce rye whiskey

  • One ounce cognac; one teaspoon orange curaçao liqueur;

  • One dash absinthe

  • One teaspoon simple syrup

  • Two dashes aromatic bitters

  • One to two ounces club soda; a lemon twist for garnish.


  • Pour the rye whiskey, cognac, curaçao, absinthe, simple syrup, and bitters into a mixing glass filled with ice.

  •  from at least 30 seconds to at least 1 minute.

  • Add fresh ice to a chilled old-fashioned glass.

  • Depending on the flavor you desire, you may add up to 2 ounces.

  • Don't forget to twirl the lemon peel over the glass and drop it in.

  • Have a good time and serve.
