Campus Cocktails: The Courtside

To make the Courtside, you’ll need a highball glass—a tall, skinny glass. Glassware is crucial when making a cocktail. Yes, I’ve skipped out on serving my drinks in the right glasses a number of times—it’s tricky to have a full cocktail set when you’re a college student. But if you can, opt for the highball glass for this drink. Other glasses include the coup glass, the martini glass (which we’ll be using for the next cocktail), and a rocks glass. Depending on which cocktail you want to make, you’ll have to decide which glass fits the bill.

Campus Cocktails: The Classic Gin and Tonic

For this recipe, I’m making a more unique version, but the best part of this age-old cocktail is that you can use whatever brand of gin and whatever brand of tonic water you want. Since this drink has such simple ingredients, I do recommend splurging on a nicer gin and a nicer tonic. Having good quality of both makes a difference, but at the end of the day, a G&T is a simple and delicious drink that is always a crowd pleaser.
