Expert Drinking-Making Tips
Use high-quality ingredients: Quality matters in any recipe, but it's especially important with cocktails. Always opt for freshly squeezed lime and lemon juices, get the best spirit for your budget and never substitute dried herbs for fresh herbs.
Measure accurately: The ratio of your spirit, sweetener and citrus matters. Take the time to measure your ingredients in a small measuring cup or jigger rather than free pour.
And, of course, you're always welcome to adjust the ratio based on your taste. For instance, if you prefer a less sweet cocktail, ½ ounce simple syrup may suit your taste better than 1 ounce.
Shake properly: When shaking, we want to get plenty of force behind our cocktail shaker. Hold the cocktail shaker at an angle and use two hands to shake.
Add a garnish for an impressive presentation: A beautiful garnish not only makes for a more memorable drinking experience, but it can add a nice fragrance or flavor.
With all these wonderful cocktails, we also need some Easter dishes to serve on the side. Let's complete your holiday menu. Whether you need snacks, brunch, dinner ideas and side courses, these
