BLOG & STORIES
At Crystal Bartenders, we hope you will have a merry Christmas! So we will talk about the traditional holiday drink, eggnog, and the history behind it. According to TIME, eggnog originated from the British medieval ale drink that was hot and milky. However, it was not until the 13th century when monks the traditional eggnog came to be, and it was when monks would make possets from figs and eggs. Afterwards, people thought that the drink would bring them well-being and fortune, because it was made from ingredients that were consumed by the wealthy classes.
It was not until when the ingredients for eggnog became affordable to the masses, the drink became known to be a holiday drink in the 18th century on American colonies. The farms on these colonies raised an abundance of cows and chickens, which were able to produce plentiful eggs and milk for the drink. Also, they were able to produce more rum, which is now the essential alcohol ingredient for eggnog.
The name eggnog also comes from the 18th century, but it was derived from the British slang for a wooden cup, which is “nog”, or they say the slang word for a strong beer, “grog.” They combined the two words, and that is how the word eggnog came to be.
For tradition, we will share George Washington’s original recipe, and he preferred his eggnog heavy on the booze side.
– 1 quart cream
– 1 quart milk
– 12 tbsp. of sugar
– 1 pint brandy
– ½ pint rye whiskey
– ½ pint Jamaican rum
– ¼ pint sherry
First, mix all the alcohol together in a bowl or pitcher.
Then separate the egg yolks from whites, and beat the yolks in a separate bowl. Then you will add sugar, and mix them together really well. Also, you will save the whites for later.
After, you will add milk and cream to the mix, slowly beating it.
Then you grab you egg whites, and beat them until they become still in a separate bowl. Then you will slowly fold them into the mix. After that, you will add the mix to the alcohol mixture.
Then let it sit in the refrigerator for a week. But make sure to taste it to see if it is okay.
Now, you know the history behind and eggnog, and George Washington’s traditional recipe! And have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
Now that Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, it’s time to relax a little until Christmas! Here at Crystal Bartenders, we would like to provide some knowledge on how to drink alone without feeling like an alcoholic. There is the taboo of being labeled as an alcoholic, but here are 8 rules for drinking alone to avoid being labeled as one.
- People can be a distraction. It is okay to drink alone sometimes in solitude, because it can help to reorganize yourself and your mind.
- Do not over drink. Many people have the problem of not being able to stop once they start. However, keep the drink to a maximum of 2. This way you are just drinking to get the feeling but not drinking to get hammered.
- Get some work done. You do not just have to sit and do nothing while you drink. You should do something productive to feel like you accomplished something while you were drinking alone.
- Don’t make it a daily habit. It is okay to drink a lone when you do it occasionally. Moderation is key to drinking alone, and it will make you feel less like an alcoholic.
- Don’t stack up on bottles. If you keep a collection of liquor in your home, it makes you to drink alone more often. It is better to keep just one bottle for that one special occasion for your alone time.
- Practice self-control. I repeat practice self-control. This relates to #2 and #4, which don’t over drink and don’t make it a daily habit. Keep these things under control, and you can control yourself.
- Don’t overthink. Overthinking while drinking alone can turn dark, and it is better to just keep things light and happy. Think about the positives and focus on them.
- Enjoy yourself. It is important that you enjoy your own self when you are alone. You are happy with you, and you are confident with you!
Well, here are some tips on how to drink alone without feeling like an alcoholic. Just remember that moderation is key, and to stay positive. Don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed for drinking alone but embrace! We all do it, occasionally. Just don’t make it a daily habit.
According to CNN, there is a new Thanksgiving Day trend, and it is called Friendsgiving. It is typically celebrated when gathering with family is not an option, or it can be celebrated after your family gathering. This means that you get to celebrate Thanksgiving twice, maybe even a third time! However, if you and some of your friends could not go home for the Thanksgiving weekend, this is the holiday for you and your friends.
Here are some ways you could plan out your Friendsgiving without all the hassles that is typical with a regular Thanksgiving:
- It should be held on Saturday or Sunday. This way your friends who are celebrating with their families could make it.
- If it is a second or third celebration, you do not have to go all out. If you are hosting, you should provide the turkey and it could be store bought instead of having to roast another turkey if you already had Thanksgiving with your family. Also, turkey does not have to be the main dish. You could serve whatever it is you prefer, or you can ask your guests what they would like.
- Your guests should bring the side dishes and anything that is typically served on Thanksgiving. Also, tell some of them to bring vegetarian options for the people who do not eat meat.
- You don’t have to use fancy silverware or dishes, and disposable plates and forks are okay! But if you insist, you could be fancy for your friends. But do dress to impress!
- Do not forget the alcohol! You should provide some alcohol, but your guests should also bring more. Some recommendations are in the previous blog post.
- Plan some fun games for the evening. Drinking games are always fun! And since this is Thanksgiving with your friends, you do not have to worry about what your family will think.
- Don’t forget to share what you are thankful for with your friends.
- Don’t worry and just have fun!
Now that you know what Friendsgiving is and how you can plan it, call up your friends and tell them about it! There is still time to plan a fun Friendsgiving Day with your friends.
It’s finally the holiday season, and Thanksgiving is coming up next week! This is a national holiday to celebrate and be thankful for the year’s harvest. Now, it is celebration of gratitude, because it is important to be thankful for what you have! This is also a day to show your appreciation to your friends and loved ones, because you might not have made it this far without them. Most likely, you will be spending this festive day with them, so we will get the party started by helping you prepare for this Thanksgiving Day!
First, we will tell you what kind of drink will go well with that turkey, ham, steak, or whatever it is you prefer for Thanksgiving.
If you are having the traditional turkey, we will suggest white wines, such as a Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. Also, a Sparking Apple Cider will do the trick. These will go well with the many side dishes that come with the turkey, such as cranberry sauce and stuffing. For beers, we suggest any type of ale, such as an IPA or brown ale.
If you are having a honey-glazed ham, we will suggest red wine like Riesling or Merlot. These will accent the sweet flavors of the ham. For beers, we suggest Wheat Beers, because they also accent the sweetness of the ham while balancing out the salty flavors.
If you are having steak, we will suggest red or white wine depending on your preference. However, red is preferred, because it allow you to get the best flavor out of your steak. For beers, we suggest any type of IPA, but lagers will do just fine.
If you are having lobster, we will suggest a white wine like Chardonnay. This is always the popular pair, because the Chardonnay will bring out the full flavors of the lobster.
Next, we will tell you an awesome after-dinner cocktail to keep the Thanksgiving party going! This cocktail will incorporate the festive flavors of apple cider and bourbon. It is called the Bourbon Apple Cider
– 4 oz apple cider
– 2 oz bourbon
– 2 tablespoons cinnamon
– 1 tablespoon sugar
– orange wedges
– rosemary sprig
1. Mix the dry ingredients (cinnamon and sugar) on a plate.
2. Get the orange wedge, and run it around the rim of the glass. Then you will add cinnamon and sugar to the rim by dipping it upside down into the plate. Then add ice.
3. In a tumbler, shake cider, bourbon and ice. Then strain the tumbler into the glass.
4. Garnish with orange slice and rosemary sprig. Simple as that!
If you follow these alcohol pairings and the after-dinner cocktail, you will definitely have a fun-filled evening with your friends and loved ones for Thanksgiving! Also, don’t drink too much or you might miss out on the early morning Black Friday Deals! Well, have a wonderful thanksgiving from Crystal Bartenders!
With Halloween just around the corner, Crystal Bartenders wanted to give you guys a deliciously SPOOKY Bloody Mary recipe. Here are the ingredients:
- 1/4 cup (2 ounces) tomato juice
- 3 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) vodka
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 3 dashes hot sauce, such as Tabasco
- About 1 cup ice cubes
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 stalk celery (optional)
- 1 lime wedge (optional)
Fernand Petiot claimed to have invented the Bloody Mary in 1921, well before any of the later claims. He was working at the New York Bar in Paris at the time, which later became Harry’s New York Bar, a frequent Paris hangout for Ernest Hemingway and other American expatriates. Harry’s Bar also claims to have created numerous other classic cocktails, including the White Lady and the Side Car.
James Rollins writes in the “What’s True, What’s Not” section of his Sigma Force novel 6.5: The Skeleton Key (2010) that the Bloody Mary was invented in the Hemingway Bar at The Ritz Paris.
New York’s 21 Club has two claims associated with it. One is that it was invented in the 1930s by a bartender named Henry Zbikiewicz, who was charged with mixing Bloody Marys. Another attributes its invention to the comedian George Jessel, who frequented the 21 Club. In 1939, Lucius Beebe printed in his gossip column This New York one of the earliest U.S. references to this drink, along with the original recipe: “George Jessel’s newest pick-me-up which is receiving attention from the town’s paragraphers is called a Bloody Mary: half tomato juice, half vodka”.
Fernand Petiot also claimed to have invented the Bloody Mary as a refinement to Jessel’s drink, when Petiot spoke to The New Yorker magazine in July 1964, saying:
“I initiated the Bloody Mary of today,” he told us. “Jessel said he created it, but it was really nothing but vodka and tomato juice when I took it over. I cover the bottom of the shaker with four large dashes of salt, two dashes of black pepper, two dashes of cayenne pepper, and a layer of Worcestershire sauce; I then add a dash of lemon juice and some cracked ice, put in two ounces of vodka and two ounces of thick tomato juice, shake, strain, and pour. We serve a hundred to a hundred and fifty Bloody Marys a day here in the King Cole Room and in the other restaurants and the banquet rooms.”
The cocktail was claimed as a new cocktail under the name “Red Hammer” in Life magazine in 1942, consisting of tomato juice, vodka, and lemon juice. Less than a month later in the same magazine, an advertisement for French’s worcestershire sauce suggested that it be added to a virgin “Tomato Juice Cocktail” along with tomato juice, salt, and pepper. The addition of salt to the alcoholic beverage was suggested that same year in a story in Hearst’s International Combined with Cosmopolitan.

Here’s a little history lesson about the Margarita straight form Wikipedia.com:
“One of the earliest stories is of the margarita being invented in 1938 by Carlos “Danny” Herrera at his restaurant Rancho La Gloria, halfway between Tijuana and Rosarito, Mexico, created for customer and former Ziegfeld dancer Marjorie King, who was allergic to many spirits, but not to tequila. This story was related by Herrera and also by bartender Albert Hernandez, acknowledged for popularizing a Margarita in San Diego after 1947, at the La Plaza restaurant in La Jolla. Hernandez claimed the owner of La Plaza, Morris Locke, knew Herrera and visited Mexico often.
A commonly accepted origin story of the Margarita is that it was invented in October 1941, at Hussong’s Cantina in Ensenada, Mexico, by bartender Don Carlos Orozco. One afternoon, Margarita Henkel, the daughter of the then German ambassador visited the cantina and Don Carlos who had been experimenting with drinks offered her one. The cocktail consisted of equal parts of tequila, Mexican orange liqueur called Controy (A.K.A. Naranja in the United States), and lime, shaken and served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass. As she was the first to try the drink, Don Carlos decided to name it after her and the “Margarita” was born.
There are also claims that the margarita was first mixed in the El Paso-Juárez area at Tommy’s Place Bar on July 4, 1942 by Francisco “Pancho” Morales. Morales later left bartending in Mexico to become a US citizen, where he worked as a milkman for 25 years. Mexico’s official news agency Notimex and many experts have said Morales has the strongest claim to having invented the margarita.
Others say the inventor was Dallas socialite Margarita Sames, when she concocted the drink for her guests at her Acapulco vacation home in 1948. Tommy Hilton reportedly attended, bringing the drink back to the Hilton chain of hotels. However, Jose Cuervo was already running ad campaigns for the margarita three years earlier, in 1945, with the slogan, “Margarita: It’s more than a girl’s name.” According to Jose Cuervo, the cocktail was invented in 1938 by a bartender in honor of Mexican showgirl Rita de la Rosa.
Another common origin tale begins the cocktail’s history at the legendary Balinese Room in Galveston, Texas where, in 1948, head bartender Santos Cruz created the margarita for singer Peggy (Margaret) Lee. He supposedly named it after the Spanish version of her name, Margarita, and it has been a hit ever since. (Margarita is a German form of the name and was introduced to Mexico with no Hispanic origin.)
The first known publication of a margarita recipe was in the December 1953 issue of Esquire, with a recipe calling for an ounce of tequila, a dash of triple sec and the juice of half a lime or lemon. A recipe for a tequila-based cocktail first appeared in the 1930 book My New Cocktail Book by G.F. Steele. Without noting a specific recipe or inventor, a drink called the Tequila Daisy was mentioned in the Syracuse Herald as early as 1936. Margarita is Spanish for Daisy, which is a nickname for Margaret.
A later story is that the margarita was invented in October 1961, at a party in Houston, Texas, by party goer Robert James “Rusty” Thomson while acting as bartender. He concocted a mixture of equal parts tequila, orange liqueur, lime, and crushed ice in a salt-rimmed glass. However, Thomson’s recipe was made with Damiana Liqueur, not Cointreau orange liqueur. It is said that the idea was an experiment after running out of rum while making frozen daiquiris.
Another explanation, however, is that the margarita is merely a popular American drink, the Daisy, remade with tequila instead of brandy, which became popular during Prohibition as people drifted over the border for alcohol. There is an account from 1936 of Iowa newspaper editor James Graham finding such a cocktail in Tijuana, years before any of the other Margarita “creation myths”.“

We’ll start this week off with another cocktail recipe for you! This time it is the classic Cuban Mojito, which is a highball drink. If you don’t know what a highball is, it is a mixed drink that is typically served in a tall glass with a spirit base and a significant portion of a non-alcoholic mix. This cocktail mainly consists of five ingredients, which are white rum, sugar, lime juice, club soda, and mint. This drink is refreshingly delicious with citrus and mint flavors that balance out the rum very well!
Also, here’s a history lesson on the Mojito for ya! The story goes that African slaves created the drink while working in the sugar cane fields in Cuba in the 1800s. The word “mojito” comes from the African word “mojo,” and it means to cast a spell. Another story says the cocktail found its influences from an earlier drink called the “El Draque,” which is named after Sir Francis Drake who tried to invade Cuba in the 1500s. However, it was not until the mid-1800s, the Mojito became popular when the rum company, Bacardi was established. Also, it was author Ernest Hemingway who popularized the drink in the U.S. after falling in love with it at a bar in Cuba. Although the true story of how the Mojito began is not exactly known, it has become classic favorite for many people all around the world. With this recipe, you can now make it at home, and enjoy the rest of your summer with this cool, refreshing drink!
Labor Day Weekend is coming soon, and we would like to give you some ideas for a party at home! It is a perfect day or weekend to have a BBQ, potluck, or just a have a fun time with some drinks! Also, it is a three-day weekend, and many people might go out of time so it is important to plan ahead of time. Following these tips will definitely make everything run smoothly, and your guests entertained for the entire evening!
- Plan ahead at least 4 weeks before the big Labor Day Weekend Party. This will give enough time to invite people, plan a menu, decorate and a million other things you have to do for a party. Plus, the more time you plan ahead, this would allow more guests to plan ahead also. If it were a last minute party, most people would not be available right away.
- Picking a theme can improve the atmosphere. Usually, this is a day to celebrate America and workers of the labor movement, and all white is usually worn on this day. However, you can pick any theme you want since it is your party! It could be anything, like aliens and robots, and everyone dressing as an alien or robot could be a theme. Blacklight could also be a theme, and everyone could wear neon colors! Whatever theme you chose, make sure you remind people before the party. Also, looking for decorations for your theme could also take some time, so plan ahead!
- Plan what to eat! Also, plan ahead of time for shopping for the menu. This could be a disaster if you are cooking right before the party, and you are missing some ingredients. This might require multiples dishes, so it is important to plan things out when making them. Some ideas for food can be burgers, hotdogs, ribs, kabobs, chicken wings, potato wedges, salads, potato salad, fruit salad, etc. However, you can make things easier for yourself by making it a potluck! You can ask people to bring a dish or drinks, and you will only have to make one or two easy dishes. Make sure you tell people to come on time if it is a potluck.
- Plan activities! You can entertain guests by having some sort of activity or activities planned. This can also be important if there are children coming to your party. You can have activities for both adults and kids. Some of these activities for kids can be outdoor games, cards, board games, or video games. Some adult activities can be beer pong, darts, drinking games, cards, or even video games.
- Create a playlist. You should also create a playlist ahead of time that will go with the vibe you want. If you picked a theme, the music should also match. Plan ahead and start looking for as many songs as you can. Using apps like Spotify can definitely save some time in creating playlists. However, if you want a more custom list of a sound that you particularly want, then you should spend some time picking them. Music is also very important to keep a party going. Also, if you are going to be too loud, let your neighbors know, because you do not want any complaints.
- Get a bartender! You can hire a professional bartender that will take care of all your bartending needs. This should be also planned weeks in advance to book a professional bartending service. They can provide everything you will need for a party. However, if it is a small party, you can also have someone you know that can bartend during your party. This will definitely make things more fun! Plan some easy to make drinks, and you will have a wild night at home!
Well these are six tips for planning an awesome Labor Day Weekend party! Don’t forget to be safe also! Check out our previous blog post to have a fun but safe night! Anyways, this party will be a wonderful way to end the summer with your friends or family! This is a celebration of you and everyone, the hardworking people of America! Create those awesome memories, and just live life before having to work for the week.
It is important to be safe when having a night out with the friends, especially when there is alcohol involved. It can be problem when everyone is too drunk to drive, so it is important to have a designated driver for the night, or get a Lyft or Uber. DUIs in Los Angeles are on the rise, and it is no joke when getting one. It will drain your bank account and take all your time away, plus it will make you paranoid every time you drink or drive.
- Plan the night out. Make sure there is a safe way home, and you or your friends are not too drunk to drive. Also, pay attention to your surroundings, and make sure you know where you are at all times. You don’t want to forget where you are, because it can happen! Also, when deciding where to go, make sure it is in a safe location with good people. You do not want to put yourself or your friends in a situation that can get you in trouble or in danger. Also, do not go home without your friends! Be cautious!
- Set your limit. You do not want to overdrink, because it is not pleasant or pretty. Make sure you keep your eyes on your drink at all times, because you will never know who might put something in it. This is very important, and please be aware of who is around you.
- Be pleasant. You do not want to be that obnoxious drunk fool at the bar or club, making a scene. This will not only embarrass you, but it will embarrass your friends also. So don’t be that person!
- Eat something and drink water! You do not want to drink on an empty stomach or keep drinking without eating something afterwards. Food is your friend, and it can help to keep the night going. It’s not fun when you’re the first one to pass out while all your friends are still having fun. Also, drink plenty of water to hydrate yourself, because alcohol dehydrates you. It can also prevent nasty hangovers the next morning.
- Tip your bartender. Bartenders will always remember their best and worst tippers, so treat them well and maybe they’ll return the favor.
Now that you know these five tips, get out there and be safe! These will minimize the danger for the night, and it will let you party all night without any complications. These will also allow you to wake up the next morning without feeling like crap and guilty of doing something wrong. Also, your friends won’t be mad at you for ditching them or embarrassing them in front of everyone. Be safe, not sorry!
