5 Classic Cocktails You Should Definitely Know How To Make
Whether you consider yourself a master in these things or not, there are certain timeless cocktail recipes you should definitely be familiar with. They have been popular for a long time now and they’ll continue to be in the top. Here are just 5 classical cocktail recipes.
One of the most popular drinks of all time, the Martini is also easy to make. Just fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour in dry vermouth (half an ounce) and then add 4 fluid ounces of gin. Count to 10 and shake in the meantime.
The Bloody Mary.
Although a little more complex in terms of ingredients, this is also a classic and nobody should even dare to say they don’t know how to make it. Rim a glass with salt, fill it half full with ice and season the ice with sauces, bitters, powders, peppers and salts. Pour in the vodka and top it with juice and lime.
The Gin and Tonic.
The Gin and Tonic is extremely simple but don’t be fooled by that because it can still be tricky to make. Pour 2 ounces of gin and 5 ounces of tonic water into a glass almost filled with ice cubes. Stir itwell and then garnish it with lime.
Although it’s a classical, the Mojito is easy to screw up so follow the instructions carefully. Put ice in a shaker and then add 6 ounces of light rum, 8 broken up mint sprigs, 6 tablespoons of lime juice and 4 tablespoons of sugar. Shake well and top each glass with a splash of club soda.
The Margarita is a traditional drink served in a salt-rimmed glass. However, you can skip this part if you don’t like salt. Fill the glass with ice and then add one and a half ounces of tequila, 1 ounce of lemon juice, half an ounce of Cointreau and stir until chilled.
