Here are Some of the Best Types of Cocktails
Manhattan is an interesting and exciting cocktail. This is a drink that can be made using just three ingredients. This drink is made by combining the best of gin and brandy with the finest lemon juice and sugar syrup. To improve the flavor of Manhattan, add some lime or lemon wedges, ice and ginger ale to it.
Many people enjoy mixing different cocktails. It is not uncommon to see people mix Manhattan with soda water, cola or limeade. This is usually done by spiking the soda with carbonation, then rinsing it off after shaking in the blender.
The resulting drink then becomes a Grenadine.
This drink is a variation of the Manhattan, which was first created by bartender Harry Martini back in 1920. The difference between these two drinks is the garnish. Martini goes with a simple olive oil sprig on top, while the Manhattan goes with blood-red wine and a skull. Therefore, the garnish changes the flavor of both drinks. You can enjoy a martini with lemon juice, peach juice, orange juice or seltzer water. It can even be served over ice without the ice.
Margaritas are made with equal parts sweet tequila, lemon juice and orange juice. The flavor can be enhanced by using different kinds of sugars, but it is usually made with equal parts of the three ingredients. Many people enjoy mixing equal parts sweet and sour for the fizziness that it provides. This makes for a unique type of cocktail.
Highball and mojito
Other types of cocktails that can be made using just two ingredients include the highball and the mojito. Highball cocktails usually are taller than they are wide. Therefore, mixing them is not difficult. A highball is a drink that consists of two ingredients. The drink is mixed with scotch on the rocks and then mixed with brandy. Mojito is made by mixing lime, mint and soda water.
The sidecar cocktail is a version of the daiquiris that we all love so much. The base of this drink is lemon juice and honey, with a little bit of Cointreau and triple sec. This type of drink is served with a wedge of white bread or with a bagel roll. The sweetness of this drink really cuts the richness of the other ingredients. Sidecars are usually topped off with some ice cubes for a refreshing finish.
Sidecar love drinks
Finally, we have the sidecar Love Drinks. It is made with equal parts gin, triple sec and lemon juice. The best types of sidecars are the ones that are made with dry raspberries instead of strawberries. This mixture is vibrant, and it makes a great summertime refreshment.
