From the comfort of the home bar, Spirits Network hosts the ultimate New Year’s Eve event.

Instead of standing at a bar, Spirits Network brings some of the best spirits experts into your home bar. As everyone gets ready to send 2020 off into the sunset and toast to 2021, the spirits community is ready to shake up the New Year.

If you are not familiar with Spirits Network, the shoppable streaming video programming creates an engaging community of experts and cocktail lovers. Whether you have honed your skills behind the bar or just want to discover a few tricks to a tastier cocktail, the programming is adaptable to any level.

For the New Year, Spirits Network is hosting a Home Bar Hero program with Liquid Chef Rob Floyd. While many people might know Floyd from his appearances on Bar Rescue, his philosophy to Sip Boldly is a great mantra to adopt as a home bartender discovers the cocktail adventure.

Ahead of the special event on New Year’s Eve, the program shared the two cocktail recipes. Whether you prefer a classic cocktail or a bubbly twist on an old favorite, these cocktails are the perfect sip to ring in some new beginnings.

Stranahan’s French 75


  • 2 oz. Stranahan’s Blue Peak Whiskey
  • 1/4 ounce lemon and lime
  • 3/4 ounce of agave
  • Dash of pomegranate juice
  • Champagne

Stranahan’s Sparkling Old Fashioned


  • 2 oz Stranahan’s Blue Peak Whiskey
  • 10 muddled blueberries
  • Touch of expressed basil
  • 3/4 oz lime
  • 1/2 oz agave
  • Cinnamon stick (optional)
  • Two quick shakes

If you had to pick just one cocktail, the Sparkling Old Fashion is a must. The combination of flavors is perfect for a celebratory moment. Although, it might be best to watch the special free New Year’s Eve event on Spirits Network for some special tips.

Once the cocktails are made, DJ Dial Jess will be spinning some dance music to usher in the New Year. And, since the event is enjoyed in your own home, you can dance like no one is looking.
