The cocktail season is upon us once again and if you are in search of the best drinks to order at the bar, then read on. First, let’s start with the classics. Straight gin, rum, triple sec, gin martini, Manhattan, tequila blast, mai tai, amaretto, triple sec, cranberry glass, fresh limeade, club soda, cranberry juice, and chocolate shavings are some of the best choices when it comes to mixing up cocktails. For the best effect, add a dash of lemon juice to the vermouth or orange juice for a twist of orange in the drink. For a sweet version, try the sugar syrup.
There are so many drinks to order at a bar, it can be hard to pick out just one. One option is to go with a martini cocktail and use dry vermouth, stuffed with ice, a lemon twist, and a sprig of mint sprig. Other great combinations include using a Manhattan and a lemon wedge with a touch of eucalyptus, ginger ale, and tonic water. A Manhattan could also be spiced up by using tequila, orange juice, and ginger ale.
There are many other great cocktails to order at a bar. Consider mixing up a Manhattan cocktail with a shot of scotch, a squeeze of lemon, and a dash of brandy or vodka. For an old-fashioned Irish twist, make a Manhattan with a dingle made of gin, cardamom, and egg white. You could also top off your drink with a shot of amaretto. The perfect summertime drink is a lemon-lime drink served with a squeeze of lime juice and a squeeze of lime cordial.
Another great cocktail is the Manhattan. If you want to incorporate different flavors in the drink, the Manhattan is a perfect choice. Many bartenders mix up the Manhattan with orange juice, ginger ale, triple sec, or cranberry juice. The best bar drinks will serve some variation on the Manhattan.
Another great option for those looking for sweet cocktails is a frozen drink. Frozen drinks have come a long way in recent years. With the advances in frozen drink technology, bartenders can create frozen margarita mixes, fizzy mojito mixes, and even fruit-flavored sangria. A popular option is a sangria that is made with tequila, triple sec, and grapefruit. This mixed drink can be served as a cool beverage with ice and garnished with fruits or anything else you can think of.
Cocktails with ice are also simple to come up with. The basic technique is to fill a clear glass with ice, and then add either brandy or vermouth. You can garnish your glass with mint leaves or a sprig of parsley. It is difficult to make a bad shot if the liquid is not added with a fork. This cocktail is perfect when paired with a fresh garden salad.
Many bartenders will have their bartenders teach people how to make a good mixed drink, and most bartenders will know which drinks should go in which glass, and which should not. The classic gin and tonic is a popular choice among bartenders, but it is easy to come up with other versions of the Manhattan. The Brandy Alexander is an easy-to-drink Manhattan that features a delicate ginger ale, a dash of rum, and a touch of lemon juice. The Brandy Alexander is a very easy drink to make.
Of course, no cocktail is complete without a squeeze of lime juice. For inspiration, you can take a nice hot cocktail (especially one with ginger ale or absinthe), and substitute the lime for a simple syrup. There are even kits available to make your drink at home. Consider these next time you are looking for new and interesting drinks to try at a bar!
