We’ve all imbibed our fair share of drinks at trendy cocktail bars, though after a while it becomes obvious that is isn’t all about fancy spirits or the enthusiasm with which you shake the cocktail shaker. Often, it is the little things which make a difference, certain things which can take our own cocktails from good to restaurant-worthy.
Many of the tips below have less to do with the actual creation of the cocktail, and more to do with re-creating that special feeling of sipping a restaurant inspired tipple in our living room. Here’s some tips on how to make top-notch cocktails at home.
Use Big Ice Cubes
Not only do extra large ice cubes make a drink look more impressive, but they melt more slowly than regular ones. This keeps your drink cold and add just the right amount of water. You can freeze large trays of ice yourself and simply chisel it into chunks.
Don’t neglect the garnish
A garnish is more than just a snack; it acts as a brilliant way to bring the appetizer together. It makes a homemade drink look classy. You certainly start to change your mind about garnishes when you see how much thought and care bartenders put into their garnishes.
Buy quality liquors
There’s no way around this tip. If you want a good cocktail, then you need to make it with good ingredients. This really does make a difference to the overall taste. If you are on a budget, simply start with a couple of bottles and work your way up.
