Cocktail In An Ice Sphere - I've contemplated various ways of achieving this using balloons and other tricks, but once I saw the kind of ice caves and cones that are made in Tiki Bars by shaping and refreezing crushed and / or shaved ice, I realized this idea could be streamlined and developed further.
Another modern classic is the cosmopolitan which features citrus vodka (also known as vodka citron) and cranberry juice, along with a touch of triple sec (the official recipe calls for Cointreau, but any quality triple sec will do the job!)

Wow your guests with Kahlua Espresso Martinis this holiday season. It’s the sophisticated yet approachable coffee cocktail that will keep the holiday festivities going. You’ll need an espresso machine and shaker. It sounds fancy, but it’s just a matter of mixing. Shake 1 part Kahlua, 2 parts Absolut Vodka, and 1 part espresso with plenty of ice, then strain into a small cocktail glass to get rid of the small ice chips. Shake for 10 seconds for optimal frothiness.
