Transport yourself to a tropical paradise with a classic Mojito. To make this refreshing cocktail, muddle fresh mint leaves, lime wedges, and a teaspoon of sugar in a glass. Add ice, two ounces of white rum, and top it off with club soda. Stir gently and garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime wheel. Sip and savour the perfect blend of sweetness and citrusy freshness.
Indulge in the tangy and zesty flavours of a Margarita. Combine two ounces of tequila, one ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice, and half an ounce of triple sec in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain the mixture into a salt-rimmed glass. Garnish with a lime wedge, and enjoy this classic cocktail that's sure to impress.
Experience the timeless elegance of an Old Fashioned. In a glass, muddle a sugar cube with a few dashes of Angostura bitters and a splash of water. Add ice cubes and two ounces of bourbon or rye whiskey. Stir gently and garnish with an orange twist and a cherry. Sip slowly and appreciate the smoothness and complexity of this classic cocktail.
It may not be your favourite, but there is always someone in the group that wants one and knowing how to make it will make YOU the ultimate host! In a shaker, combine one and a half ounces of vodka, one ounce of cranberry juice, half an ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice, and half an ounce of triple sec. Shake well with ice, then strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime twist, and enjoy the perfect blend of sweet and tart flavors.
This new , go-to martini seems to be everywhere! For coffee lovers with a twist, the Espresso Martini is an excellent choice. In a shaker, combine one and a half ounces of vodka, one ounce of coffee liqueur, and a shot of freshly brewed espresso.
