Innovative cocktails for the New Year 2012
For all the party people who want to have their drinks with a twist this time, here is a variety of ideas from which you can choose from.

PEOPLE ARE preparing for the stroke of the midnight when they would toast with their near and dear ones. Wishes would be flowing and phone lines would be busy. Some are thinking of hitting the pubs and the dance floor, and would have lot of booze and different cuisines. For people who have a party at their home and they are serving alcohol, they can jazz up the entire bar with a few nice and easily prepared cocktails. Coctails have their own charm and to wish for the next year to be good over a glass of blue lagoon would be nice opposed to simple vodka. However, people who want to enter 2012 in a blur and haze they are always welcome to have their tequila shots. For others, here are some winning cocktails:

The first and the foremost is Midnight Martini. What better way to toast the upcoming year with a hint of caffeine. It is quite simple to make. Just take 3 parts of Vodka, 1/4th part of coffee liqueur and lemon twist for garnishing. In a cocktail shaker add the ingredients and shake well to pour it in a martini glass of crushed ice.

Celebrations without champagne are a complete no no for many people. But people who had too many glasses of golden bubbles can try the Elit Midnight Millionaire this New Year. Although it sounds too sophisticated it is very easy to prepare. Pour 1 part of vodka in the champagne flute glass. Top it with champagne and garnish with a raspberry. Simple yet sophisticated is the drink for those who like life to be simple yet different.

For beer lovers the cranberry ginger cocktail is a must have. It is smooth, has a hint of ginger, and it uplifts the party mood. Take 1.5 parts of vodka, 4 parts of ginger beer shake it well with ice. Take the cranberries in the cocktail glass, crush them up a bit and top the glass with the mixer. This is quite a winner for the boys who do not like the ladies drinking too much.

Sambora is a cocktail from Italy and really easy to make. Take few raspberries in a glass, add one spoon of sugar dust and crush the entire things well. Then add vodka and ice to the same to have a really chilly, red and sweet tasting cocktail for the night.

For the Gin lovers, have a sip of Gin Rickey this New Year. The cocktail that has the correct amount of acidity also has a very fresh taste. For making this easy cocktail, you need 1 and 1.4 parts of Dry Gin, add 1.4 parts of lime juice with 1 parts of soda water.

These are some of the best and the easiest cocktails to make at home and one would definitely enjoy the variety of taste.

But to enjoy and get the most out of New Year celebrations, enjoy your cocktails in moderation, and usher in 2012 in safe and healthy manner.
