Below are some of our favorite recipes that are meant as a starting point for great cocktails.  We tried to keep these recipes simple so that you did not need all of the tools available in a professional bar and, by all means, we encourage you to adjust and modify the recipes to suit your particular tastes.   Just click on the name of the cocktail to download the recipe.

If you have recipes that use Leopold Bros. spirits that you would like to share, we encourage you to email them to us at  We will try them all and select a few for inclusion on our website.   With your permission, we will then credit you on our website.  We hope you enjoy the world of mixology.
