The 2012 Summer Olympics are headed to London and while we can't jump across the pond to join in the fun first hand, we're still celebrating the games here at home.
At this year’s events, there will be exactly 302 Olympic medal events and we’re hoping to tune into as many as we can. Though there might only be a simple Olympics themed dinner party we’ve planned, the best thing about our Olympic cocktail recipes is that they can be mixed up at any time a celebration is in order.
Check out the recipes below, some inspired greatly by the 2012 Olympics host city, London as well as a few others inspired by symbols like the Olympic torch and the coveted gold medal.
The 2012 Olympic Games run from July 27th through August 12th so there’s plenty of time to give all these drinks a try!
