Although I love trying new bars and cocktails from restaurants, I’ve found that at the end of the day I’m my best bartender. I know I’m not technically trained or anything, but most cocktails don’t indeed Take so much experience with you – especially if you have the instructions in front of you. In fact, there are so many delicious looking and simple cocktail recipes that I may never have to go to a bar again! My living room is more comfortable and has more seating, so it was really just a matter of time.

If you’re your own bartender, you’ll never be charged $ 15 for a cocktail, the fonts are as heavy as you want, and it’s quiet enough to hear yourself think. Call me a homebody, but that sounds pretty damn good to me. In addition, so many cocktails are ridiculously easy to prepare and require only a few ingredients. If you keep classic liqueurs and wines in-house, you may not even need to take a trip to the store. These cocktail recipes could be the answer to every introvert’s prayers.
