The Russian Spring Punch cocktail was created in London, England by Dick Bradsell in the 1980s. He claims not to remember which bar he was working at at the time, but tells the story of how he created the recipe for personal friends wishing to hold a cocktail party while minimizing the amount of money they had to spend on alcohol. Participants were provided with the vodka, cassis, sugar syrup and lemon juice, and were asked to bring their own Prosecco. It is named for the russian vodka, and the John Collins, which is a spring drink.
30 ml/ 1 oz. vodka
15 ml/ ½ oz. Crème de Cassis
15 ml/ ½ oz. lemon juice, freshly sqeezed
10 ml / ¼ oz. sugar syrup
60 ml/ 2 oz. Prosecco
Pour all ingredients into cocktail shaker, except the Prosecco.
Shake well with ice, strain into chilled tall tumbler glass filled with ice.
The Irish Mule cocktail is a whiskey-based spin on the Moscow mule, a classic cocktail invented in the 1940’s. When it was first invented, this drink may have been a ploy to sell vodka, ginger beer and copper mugs. The mule is part of a family of cocktails called bucks: drinks made with ginger beer or ale, citrus juice, and liquor. So a Moscow mule is a vodka buck, and an Irish mule is a whiskey buck!
60 ml/ 2 oz. Irish whiskey
15 ml/ ½ oz. lime juice, freshly sqeezed
180 ml/ 6 oz. Ginger Beer
and drop in the spent shell.
Add 2 or 3 ice cubes, then pour in the Irish whiskey and fill with cold ginger beer (not ginger ale, although what the hell).

The origins of the Yellow Bird cocktail name is unclear. Some sources mention that the cocktail was named after the Haitian tune Yellow Bird, that was first rewritten in English in 1957 that became a sort of national anthem of the Caribbean due to the popularity of Harry Belafonte`s’s recording. Others argue that it was not named after the song and obtains the name from its sunny color resulting from Galliano, a golden, sweet vanilla-anise Italian liqueur.
30 ml/ 1 oz. white rum
15 ml/ ½ oz. Galliano Vanilla liqueur
15 ml/ ½ oz. Triple Sec.
15 ml/ ½ oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake.
Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
If only Galliano is required as an ingredient in cocktail recipes, this always means yellow Galliano (Vanilla). Depending on how the recipe was created, these can be very different liqueurs in terms of taste. It can be mixed with Galliano Vanilla as well as with the Galliano L’Autentico herbal liqueur. Both variants differ significantly in taste. The Yellow Bird cocktail is prepared with Galliano Vanilla.
I think it’s time to introduce my top 30 cocktails. The taste of people is very different, some prefer sour, others sweet and still others with cream or bitters. My favorite drinks should definitely contain aniseed, preferably sambuca and pernot. But everyone should choose the cocktail that they personally like best.
