Twitter And Cocktails: A Social Media Guide to Mixology

Twitter And Cocktails: A Social Media Guide to Mixology


As I mentioned in my post about cocktails from Pinterest, I also explained how great social media is to share and discover cocktail recipes.

These particular cocktails were absolutely delicious, but it doesn’t have to stop there.

Twitter is another website that is a gold mine for sharing with the world your most tasty mixed drinks (as I inspected the Twitterverse for the recipes in this post, I couldn’t help but retweet some more yummy-looking creations as well, from my own account, @EmMichelleFata).

I’ve summed up for you my favourite findings from this Internet excursion.

All recipes are taken directly from the pages linked in the images. You’ll be sure to enjoy the following eight cocktails found on Twitter!
