It was only a matter time before mixologists began brewing a concoction just for the Hurricane Sandy/Frankenstorm/apocalypse heading to the Northeast. Thanks to the Renaissance Hotels, the Northeast hotels have made a stormy cocktail to get you through the night.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
