Try this cocktail for your perfect golden hour drink - when it’s too late for lemonade and too early for whisky. Bright orange that reminds you of sunset in color with a combination of sweet liqueur and Prosecco, this drink will give you a good buzz with a bittersweet aftertaste! To make this drink, all you need to do is fill in a tall balloon or wine glass with cubed eyes, equal parts of Prosecco and Aperol, and then add a splash of soda and finish it off by garnishing with a slice of orange.

This drink came from the Caribbean waters, where sailors always had plenty of rum. Fill your highball with ice and add ¾ of ginger beer and some lime juice. Top slowly with rum. Make sure the rum is floating like a dark storm on top of your cocktail. Garnish with a lime wedge and stir! Try it here.
5. Martini Cocktail
