Making a good drink is not always easy because you have to make the appropriate mixture of ingredients to get the best balance between them. I had the chance to participate in a mixology workshop and it helped me to create a base that allows me to make well-balanced cocktails. To make your cocktail, it needs to be established with four basic elements.
These elements are :
Alcohol of your choice (gin, rum …)
A sweet liquid (coke, juice …)
An acidic liquid (lemon juice, lime juice …)
A bitter liquid (angostura bitters)
From this formula, you will be able to develop the best cocktails. Just use the right ingredients. For the recipe I suggest here, you can add an egg white to create foam on top of the cocktail. Simply add the egg white when mixing everything in a shaker. Also, when you add mint leaf, do not cut it. You just tap it in your hands to bring out the freshness. Cutting the herbs brings out their oil and adds bitterness to the cocktail.
Also, I suggest you prepare your cocktail from less common alcohol to add a little challenge. For example, using the bourbon will be more difficult than the vodka.
Now you just have to let your imagination go with these 4 basic ingredients.
