 Last week, we posted a collection of frozen cocktail recipes that you could make at home, and now we’ve got even more recipes to share. They’re not frozen, but we expect they’ll be just as delicious.

All recipes are courtesy of Everyday Kitchen’s Louisville location (552 E Market St.), which opened earlier this year after a relaunch from its original concept, Lodgic Everyday Community. 

Everyday Kitchen has both a cafe and a full-service restaurant. Later this month, the café will be launching new breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus (check below for a preview). When those debut, these cocktails will also be on the menu. Until then, you can make them yourself at home.
