3 Cocktails You Can Enjoy From Home

With the CDC recommending that people practice social distancing, we hope that many of you will try to find something to do from home. Before you head home, wash your hands and come get some supplies from Old Tennessee so that you can practice your mixology skills at home. Here are a few drink ideas to get you started:

The Quarantini (Classic Martini)

We’ve seen this idea floating around the internet and we couldn’t help but add it to our list. It’s a classic cocktail that you can practice at home with just a few key ingredients. It makes for a simple cocktail to create and enjoy at home.


  • 2.5 oz Dumplin Creek 90 Proof Gin
  • 0.5 oz dry vermouth
  • 1-3 olives or lemon twist for garnish

How to Prepare:

  • Fill a mixing glass with ice and combine the gin and vermouth
  • Stir around 30 seconds
  • Strain into a chilled martini glass 
  • Garnish with either olives or a lemon twist

Bloody Mary

Can’t go out to your favorite brunch spot? Make your own Bloody Mary at home! It is best served with a brunch item, whether a simple egg and toast meal or even eggs benedict. Now is the perfect time to practice your cocktail and brunch making skills.


  • 2 oz Runner’s Rye
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 4 oz tomato juice
  • 2 dashes Tobasco sauce
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp. Horseradish (optional)
  • 1 pinch celery or margarita salt
  • 1 pinch ground pepper
  • Celery stalk and olives for garnish

How to Prepare:

  • Rub lemon and lime wedges along the rim of a glass and then roll the edge of the glass in the salt of your choice. Fill the glass with ice.
  • Add Runner’s Rye, tomato juice, 2 dashes Tobasco sauce (or more if you want extra spicy), Worcestershire sauce, horseradish (optional), and pepper in a shaker with ice
  • Shake this mixture vigorously and then strain into your prepared glass.
  • Garnish with your celery stalk and a skewer of olives

Little River Sweet Tea

This drink is a perfect way to imagine you’re enjoying the sweet Tennessee mountain air from your couch. For a more realistic experience, turn the TV to a video of the Smoky Mountains and play some music by Dolly Parton.


  • 2 oz Little River Lemon Moonshine
  • 6 oz sweet tea
  • 1 dash of honey
  • Optional: Apple slice and blackberries for garnish

How to Prepare:

  • Add your sweet tea to a drinking glass
  • Stir the moonshine into sweet tea until mixed
  • Add a dash of honey for extra sweetness
  • Optionally, put an apple slice and blackberries on a skewer to garnish the drink

We hope these drinks make staying at home a little more enjoyable. If you do create any, snap a picture and tag us on our social media accounts! We’d love to see your beautiful creations.
