Tips While Making A Cocktail

Most of us know how to make a cocktail and even the simple ones also. But we only lack a bit of perfection.Like if we do not have enough salt in our food then we don't get the exact taste.Similarly in our cocktail the slightest of mistakes can change or even ruin the taste of the cocktail

So here are some points to note while making a cocktail

  • Proper glassware is essential.At least martini glass,old fashioned glass,tall glass is necessary
  • Serve cold cause 99% of drinks are served cold.Don't make large drinks because it can get warm before you can finish it.
  • Keep martini glasses chilled,either in freezer or on the ice
  • Use plenty of ice - don't skimp
  • Never reuse the ice in a cocktail shaker
  • A new cocktail needs fresh ice
  • do not leave the liqueur on the ice as it can get watery
  • Invest in a good strainer because you do not want picking bits out of your teeth or feeling a texture on your tongue that should not be there
  • While muddling ingredients like mint,do not muddle them as raspberries or strawberries.Muddle just to bruise as it ll not make the cocktail bitter and it ll release the essential ingredient of your drink

So i hope these tips will make your cocktails better and if you find an error or if you like them feel free to comment or message me.

Watch Out While Making Flaming Shots

There are many recipies that are called a shot or a drink with fire.Its neat and pretty cool when it is done the right way.However there are many things to keep in mind when dealing with flaming alchohol.
  • Never consume a drink when it is lit on fire. Always BLOW it out.
  • Close all the bottles of alchohol before lighting the drink and move away from the presentation area.
  • Don't serve flaming drinks to guests who are unknown to it
  • If you cant see the flame then turn the lights out because alchohol burns with a blue flame that is not always visible to normal light.Never put your face next to the drink or stick your finger in it.
  • Dont let the flame burn to long.The glass may heat and crack and also the taste of the drink also gets ruined.
  • Dont add additional alchohol to the burning drink beacuse there is risk of spraying fire around or haveing a flaming bottle.
  • Always use heavy glassware.Thin glass may crack or may get etched.
  • Short,round glasses such as snifter are better suitable for flaming drinks then tall thin ones.
All that of being said, flaming drinks are very snazzy and give a good presentation value!Its all common sense,so enjoy them and just use that little bit of grey matter so no one dies in a flaming inferno.Beacause no one is really a fan of that.
