If you have gotten past the confusion between whiskey and bourbon (spoiler, all bourbon is whiskey, but not all whiskey is bourbon), and you understand that bourbon is always made in the U.S., stored in new charred oak barrels, and distilled to no more than 190 proof, then you are ready to expand your horizons and try some simple bourbon cocktail recipes.
Tequila is one of my all-time favorite spirits. It enjoys immense popularity across North America, but I think its strengths are underutilized in the United States. North of the border, tequila is best known for the Margarita, which is delicious, but almost never properly executed. There are a couple other popular tequila drinks like the Tequila Sunrise or (shudder) tequila shots, but these fail to take advantage of the spirit's true potential.
Ordering a drink is important business. Because it's not just a cocktail. It's a chance to channel your inner badass.
Cocktails are good companions for celebrating the arrival of summer and excellent companions for cooling down during hot days. Whether you decide to throw a summer party, make a barbecue in the backyard, or just relax a bit, a cocktail will help you enjoy the atmosphere you’ve created.
You deserve only the best quality of relaxation, so of course the cocktail in your hand should reflect that. Ideally, we would be able to make our cocktails with patience and love, paying close attention to every detail. We’re all unique individuals, after all, and all our taste buds demand something different.
There's something to be said about the elegance and decadence that comes with serving up a deluxe, artisan-style cocktail. It's a work of art that you can make with your own hands, and also enjoy in both flavor and aroma. Even visually, a craft cocktail proves itself to be a great thing to behold.
Hello, and welcome back to another refreshing installment of the Ginger Tea Reviews! Tea is my passion, and I have made it my goal to share my passion with the world!
The majority of drinkers love a great signature cocktail of their choice. Whether they're into more fruity cocktails or can't get enough of the bitter ones, there are so many ways you can create cocktails. From the types of spirits and liquor to the additions like juices, sodas, and other mixers, there are tons and tons of ways you can whip up a great-tasting cocktail. Even though some people like to keep it simple and light with a two-mix cocktail, there are others who throw in a bunch of ingredients, because they want their cocktail to be loaded with flavors. And how can we blame them? Cocktails should be fun drinks!
If you're 30,000 feet in the air without a glass in your hand, something's not right. I know your nerves are bubbly (not all of us are like this, but flying is nerve wracking, after all). I suggest buying at least one of their massive amounts of mini bottles. Why not? You may not be in Rome, but it's also not everyday you're flying over the world. That's just how I picture it, though.
"I'm on a 24 hour soju diet. Sipping while I spill it; I encourage you to try it!" That's one thing I have in common with Lil Wayne: I love drinking! Straight or in a cocktail, I'll glug it down and have a good time. So, when someone told me about soju, I rubbed my palms together in anticipation.
Everyone likes a fresh mixed beverage every once and while (some of us like them more often than others), but what if we've been making our favorite classic drinks completely wrong this whole time? It honestly doesn't take a rocket scientist to know how to make a Martini or a Bloody Mary, but these are only two examples of the vast annals of wrongly-made cocktails. If you're going to make something (especially if you want it to taste good and be worthwhile), make it the right way and don't fall into the trap of making it your way. Your ways are wrong, trust me.
I’m proud of the fact that I’ve been drinking cocktails from teen to now—I never stopped when people took the mickey fin, I never gave up when I’d enter a bar and have to make my own up, I never gave up when people sniggered at my concoctions. I remember the days when cocktails only existed in the best-est of hotel bars.
