Halloween is without a doubt one of the best holidays ever. People dress up in garish outfits and party like crazy. Something that would make it even cooler is if there were a drink that actually looks like the devil himself. Turns out there is! The Devil’s Playground is a gin and cherry based drink that is blood red and sports devils horns. You can’t beat that.

While looking for new holiday drinks for this year’s videos, I happened upon a recipe entitled A Taste of Winter. This sublime cocktail combines a few upscale ingredients to create something amazing. This drink’s flavor palate fits the winter theme to perfection, with tones of citrus, cherry, and orange. So crank up the tunes, grab yourself a glass, because the winter is about to warm up in a hurry.
I might have never known how great this version of the Easter Egg Cocktail is if my friend Michelle hadn’t said, “Let’s go to the Townhouse Lounge”. An underappreciated, dark, loud, hipster bar in the heart of Midtown Sacramento, ToHo is also where Bartender Brian works. Michelle and I got far beyond wasted that afternoon, but one of the drinks that Brian made for us that day stuck out in my mind as one of the best drinks I’ve ever tasted. Although his version wasn’t this version, or even the popular version of this drink, I remember wondering what he was making with cream of coconut and blue curacao. Later, I would find out that this delectable drink was a variation of the Easter Egg Cocktail. I knew I had to find the recipe that was somewhat close to that shot, but it took time to find this particular recipe.
Thinking back to when I was a lot younger, I used enjoy a lot of different desserts. Peach cobbler and cherry pie were two of my favorites. Imagine my delight when I discovered there was actually a cocktail called the Cherry Cobbler. This particular Cherry Cobbler recipe consists of gin, Cherry Heering, crème de cassis, lemon juice, and simple syrup.
