Cocktail and mixed drink recipes are everywhere and there are thousands of drinks to choose from and mix up. Here is your exploration guide to the most popular bar drinks around the globe.
- Apple Martini
A trendy cocktail that has picked up ubiquity by adding a big twist to the typical dry martini. Made with gin or vodka mixed with apple schnapps gives this drink a unique taste and colour. The Appletini is finished off with a little lemon juice and garnished with a slice of apple.
- Long Island Iced Tea
Packed with a punch, the Long Island Iced Tea is one cocktail that never seems to go out of style. The potent concoction of rum, vodka, tequila, gin and triple sec is often finished off with a mixture of sweet and sour, lemon juice and cola. There is no tea added to the mixture but the cola provides the flavour profile of a tea.
This one is the most popular as its fresh minty taste complements the warm summer weather much like a cool glass of non-alcoholic lemonade. This mixture of white rum, mint, lime juice, sugar and soda water is crisp and clean and relatively low on alcoholic content. Sprite or 7-up can often be used in place of soda and sugar.
The Cosmopolitan is an ultra modern drink. The tangy concoction of vodka, triple sec, lime juice and cranberry juice has made this drink more popular among vodka drinkers. The keys to the preparation of a Cosmopolitan are a good quality cranberry juice and Cointreau Triple Sec.
These are some of the popular cocktails you can opt for and never go wrong with.
