A cocktail is a useful and important addition in several party circumstances. When you have the right cocktail mix for your guests, no doubt some people will ask you to share with them the ingredients to your wonder drink.
Hence, for any occasion where a unique drink will be necessary, here are some tips that you need to consider for the perfect cocktail mix:
Measure your ingredients... always
Ultimately, the taste of the drink will be determined by the combinations you have used in it. This means that you need not spare any length in ensuring that you have just the perfect combination of all ingredients. Failure to measure well may result in a cocktail without that unique taste. It might seem a little time consuming task to measure all ingredients. However, the results of measuring will be seen in the specific taste that you give the drink.
Use fresh ingredients for a tastier cocktail
When you are making a cocktail, what features first and foremost as your priority is its taste and the effect it will have on your guests. In this regard, you need to seriously consider using the freshest ingredient ever. When you are using juices especially, go for fresh rather than canned. Getting the juice fresh from a lemon or orange is a lot better compared to using the packaged juices which may not have that unique, fresh taste. Do not forget the additives used in juices which are not fresh as they will have an influence on the overall taste of your drink.
Use the correct glass for your cocktail
If you are serving the drink cold, the glass should advance this as well. Chilled glasses will work perfectly with a cold cocktail. It need not take a lot of time to have the glass ready for a chilled drink. A minute or less in the freezer or pouring cold water to them will help keep the drink colder for longer. At the same time, in the event that your drink will be served warm, try pouring warm water inside the glass before you serve the cocktail.
