12 Instagrams To Follow For Cocktail Inspiration© We Heart It

There's nothing better than unwinding after a long day with a cocktail that was mixed with your favourite ingredients, just for you. Need some inspiration for your next happy hour? We have the perfect Instagram accounts to get your imagination going. Cheers to that!

1. BlackLeafLdn

BlackLeafLnd throw some of the hottest parties in the UK, which means they have lots of opportunities to impress us with their mixology skills. They often post DIY recipes in their bio for you to attempt to recreate. Key word: attempt, these cocktails are FANCY as hell.

2. CocktailsByDesign

This Australian based mixologist always posts their beautiful drinks with the recipes included. Owner Deon Warner is an expert in summer beach drinks, who doesn't want to dream about those? We do, even in the middle of winter.

3. JustMakeMeSomething

They are responsible for the self proclaimed "definitive cocktail inspiration and recipe guide" and after checking out their Instagram, we believe it. These cocktails are stunning and always bring an interesting angle to their drinks. Who doesn't want graham crackers or rainbow sprinkles in their cocktails?

4. NoletsGins

This one made the list as I am admittedly a little biased, I am a gin girl. Sue me. Nolets gins offers some top notch gin recipes and accompanies them with some swoon worthy photos. What bars make drinks like this? Need answers ASAP.

5. DrinkologyBR

This Brazilian drinkologist (which I am assuming is the same thing as a mixologist) mixes up some South American inspired cocktails on the reg. Boysenberries in my Moscow mule?! Yes please.

6. LetsTurnUp

If it isn't evident by the name, Le's Turn Up is all about giving your classic cocktails a festive twist. Yes, they literally have a drink called the "Pokemon Sharpedo Cocktail." It is probably Tara Reid's favorite drink.

7. TheKiwiBartender

This bartender based in Sydney is a self proclaimed beer lover, but luckily he still decides to shower us with pictures of some delicious looking cocktails. He also nicely includes the recipe for each one, and some of them you can even light on fire. That's right, ON FIRE.

8. Ombibulous

The LA based DIY cocktail hub conveniently posts all of its recipes with the liquor used in the photo. They also give them precious names like "Pixie Margaritas." Please witness the cuteness below.

9. LiquorDotCom

This account seeks to inspire "good drinking and great living," if that doesn't sound good to you, then I don't know what does. One of their drinks involves mixing alcohol with banana pudding ice cream. HELL YES.

Here's your Monday #cocktailporn (this one's called the Rum Rangoon). You're welcome.

10. TequilaPartida

Yes, this is an Instagram devoted solely to tequila and all of the ways to incorporate jalapeños into your drinks. Pretty sure jalapeños are vegetables, so you're basically killing two birds with one stone.

11. MixedOrNeat

Depending on how bad our day is, sometimes we like a mixed drink, and sometimes... we just need our drink neat. Lucky for us, this account offers recipes on both. Cheers to having all our bases covered.

12. Cocktail_Diary

Your diary may consist of more entries about your most recent crush and the latest work gossip, but this diary is devoted entirely to cocktail recipes and tips for mixing them. Let's be honest, all diaries should probably be cocktail diaries.
