If you’re familiar with Chicago, you’ll surely know about Jewel-Osco, the supermarket chain. They have just introduced their new delivery service, so I figured it was a good time to try it out by ordering the ingredients to make my favorite cocktails at home, and share them with you!
Most will appreciate that you can shop by order history, if you find yourself buying the same things over and over, like I do. The driver will bring everything right to your door. The Jewel: Home Delivery trucks are equipped with frozen and chilled compartments so you won’t have any limitations on what you can order. They only have a $30 minimum purchase requirement, for both delivery and pickup services!
Without further ado, I give to you, my three favorite drink recipes!
I’m a huge fan of drinking bourbon neat, and also a huge fan of sour flavors and lemon juice. After drinking alcohol, I tend to try and drinks that are alkaline such as water with lemon to make sure I stay feeling great. This drink balances the acid of the liquor with the alkaline of the lemon in one go to balance and create a happy tummy!
- 2 oz. bourbon
- 2/3 oz. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. superfine sugar
- Maraschino cherry on top
Mix ingredients together in a shaker. Pour over ice and garnish with a cherry.
Here’s another drink that’s very fitting to Pierre’s taste buds. I’m a huge fan of salty, spicy and sour flavors, so the Bloody Mary, which is basically an alcoholic salad, fits my tastes perfectly.
- 2 ounces tomato juice
- 1 1/2 ounces vodka
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 3/4 teaspoon freshly grated horseradish
- 5 dashes hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 dash freshly ground black pepper
- About 1 cup ice cubes
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 celery stalk
- 1 lemon wedge (optional)
Stir together all ingredients except the celery and lemon wedge. Mix well, then pour over ice. Garnish with celery stalk and/or lemon wedge.
White Russians sound so exotic but in actuality they’re fairly simple. I’ve been enjoying these for years and they always seem to put me in a good mood. Enjoy your sweet dessert and little slice of heaven!
- 1.5 ounces vodka
- 3/4 ounce Kahlua
- Heavy cream
Mix all ingredients together in glass and pour over ice. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoy reading and making some of my favorite cocktails. I must say, I really enjoyed the smooth process of having all the ingredients delivered by Jewel-Osco so I could comfortably enjoy my favorite drinks, without leaving home!
