A great cocktail starts with a great spirit. If you’re making an Old Fashioned, a Margarita, a Mojito or a Vesper Martini, using quality ingredients will elevate the experience.
Whether it was to mask off flavours or enhance what’s in the glass, people have been mixing their alcoholic beverages almost as long as people have been drinking alcohol. In Homer’s Iliad, slave-girls even prepared concoctions of wine, cheese, honey and raw onions. Now you likely won’t find that recipe at a modern cocktail bar but you will find delicious renditions of Paper Planes and Boulevardiers.
The world of modern cocktail creations is literally at your fingertips.
