If you’re anything like me, you braved the Ticketmaster Queue in a desperate attempt to get tickets for Taylor Swift’s concert, coined The Eras Tour. I was fortunate enough to secure tickets for my friends and I, and now we’ve been busy mapping out the best way to spend our weekend as diehard Swifties. Planning our cocktails around each Taylor Swift era seemed like the perfect way to celebrate! Since I did all the work of coming up with a Taylor Swift cocktail for each of Taylor Swift’s albums, I decided to share them with you.

Debut: The Taylor

Taylor Swift’s first album also happens to be named after her, so what better cocktail than the one that she’s been known to order for years. Diet coke and… vodka. Does this sound a bit disgusting? Yes. Will your friends be slightly disappointed if this is how you show up to the party? Also yes, but they’ll also be impressed by the depth of your Swiftie knowledge and the way you stick to a theme.


  • 1 glass Diet Coke
  • Vodka (to taste)

Fearless: White Horse

15 shots of vodka. No mixer. No chaser. Kidding!

The White Horse is, of course, just a fun renaming of the classic Moscow Mule. As one of the best songs on the album (in my humble opinion), serving up a Moscow Mule in a white cup and calling it the White Horse will be fun and punny, sure to delight the whole group. Plus, this cocktail is mild enough that everyone is sure to enjoy it.


  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 0.5 oz Lime Juice
  • 4 oz Ginger Beer

Speak Now: The Aviation

“Sparks Fly”, and so does this drink—The Aviation. The subtleness of this pun is accentuated by the fact that the drink, like the album cover, is an absolutely beautiful color purple. This is a delicious cocktail perfect for people who are just getting started with Gin but still need the stronger pine-y flavor to be covered up by something a bit more floral.


  • 2 oz Gin
  • 0.5 oz maraschino liqueur
  • 0.5 oz creme de violette
  • 0.5 oz lemon juice

Red: Negroni Sbagliato

The key to a Red cocktail is simple: make it red. This album gives dark woodsy vibes while not going full-on whiskey in the forest (that’s for later on), so the Negroni Sbagliato is perfect for this album. The color is a perfect match, and the bitter flavor will leave you feeling just like Taylor when she wrote all 10 minutes of “All Too Well”.


  • 1.5 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 1.5 oz Campari
  • 2 oz Prosecco

1989: Stuck in the Woods

While this drink was ~oh so creatively~ named after “Out of the Woods”, in truth it’s just a Dark n’ Stormy. This STYLEish drink will have you living out all of your WILDEST DREAMS. Plus, if you perfect it, it might just be HOW YOU GET THE GIRL.


  • 2 oz dark Rum
  • 0.5 oz lime juice
  • 5 oz ginger beer

Reputation: Old Fashioned

I knew it from the first old fashioned we were cursed, and so too will you be if you don’t make this drink as your Reputation inspired option. This drink absolutely screams powerful woman getting her revenge, just like Taylor Swift is screaming it in the songs on this album.


  • 3 oz Bourbon
  • 1 oz simple syrup or sugar
  • 3 dashes of bitters

Lover: Cotton Candy Shot

Lover is all about cotton candy, sweetness, and the color pink. Despite the strong undertones of anxiety throughout the album, everyone thinks it’s incredibly romantic, and so that’s what we should be capturing with the drink. The color scheme lends itself to cotton candy, and so that’s what we’ll do!


  • 1/2 shotglass worth of vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 shotglass worth of vodka (vanilla or another sweet flavor preferred)
  • blue or pink food coloring
  • cotton candy garnish

Folklore: Illicit Chai

If you and your friends are chai latte lovers, this drink is perfect for you. The mezcal and tequila bring a smokey kick that’s perfect for the dark forest energy of the album, and the chai syrup sweetens it up just the right amount.


  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 0.75 oz Chai syrup
  • 1.25 oz Mezcal
  • 0.75 Tequila

Evermore: French 75

Taking inspiration from both “Champagne Problems” and “Gold Rush”, this upscale cocktail is traditionally a mix of champagne, gin, and lemon juice. However! What takes this beyond simply just being another champagne cocktail is the edible gold glitter which you sprinkle on top.


  • 3 oz Champagne (preferrably Dom Pérignon)
  • 1.5 oz Gin
  • 0.5 oz Lemon Juice
  • Edible Gold Glitter

Midnights: HIGH Infidelity (Lavender Edition)

Yes, I absolutely did have to make a pun related to my favorite song on the Midnights album, “High Infidelity”. Luckily for me it was easy to come up with one! Stoners, get excited, because this one is for you. Given the “Lavender Haze” song and the prevalence of the color in the album, I decided to make a lavender lemonade spiked with THC. The ingredients for this one don’t have measurements because it’s all pretty hand wavey and depends on how you like your lemonade and your high.


  • Lavender Flowers
  • Purple food dye
  • THC oil of your choice
  • Sugar
  • Boiling Water
  • Freshly squeezed lemons
