The 3 Grooviest Cocktails And How To Make ThemBy Toby Tunwase
If you are a lover of cocktails, then you know that the right blend and mix can add color and life to any day or event. Therefore, we have taken the time to compile three of the spiciest cocktails that will bring your senses and events to life.
Among the early cocktails was the gimlet. A 1928 description of the drink called for gin and lime juice. Mix the following ingredients over ice and strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with ice to make a more modern gimlet:
- Add a wedge of lime for garnish.
- Two and a half ounces of gin
- Three-fourths of an ounce of Rose’s lime juice
For a sweeter taste, some 1950s recipes called for adding simple syrup.
In the early 1950s, the screwdriver became a popular brunch drink. This is a basic recipe for the screwdriver, but there are several variations. You will get four screwdrivers from the recipe below:
- Vodka, 1 cup
- Orange juice (1 and a half cups)
- Slices of orange
Orange juice and vodka should be mixed. Four glasses should be filled with the cocktail over ice and garnished with orange slices.
The Piña Colada
After World War I, the men returned home with a craving for rum. Pina Colada is a Puerto Rican rum drink that satisfies this newfound love. The recipe below yields four glasses.
- ½ fresh pineapple, which should be cut into pieces.
- Cocoa cream sweetened (6. 0z)
- Two ounces of unsweetened coconut milk.
- White rum (8 Oz.)
- Lime juice (2 tbs.)
- Dark rum (2. Oz)
