We have put together the five best cocktail classics for you so that you are well prepared for the next cocktail evening. The selection for the next happy hour in the bar will also be easy for you!
Caipirinha is a Brazilian cocktail that is super easy to make and incredibly refreshing. You only need four ingredients: fresh organic lime, cane sugar, crushed ice, and cachaça, a high-percentage sugar cane schnapps. The fresh limes develop their full aroma when they are crushed in the glass and give off fresh juice, which is then infused with cachaça. You can also replace this with vodka if you don’t have the original in stock.
For those who like to dream of Caribbean beaches, Piña Colada is just the thing. From white rum, pineapple juice, cream of coconut, cream, and ice cubes, a sweet and fruity cocktail is created in just 5 minutes, which is really reminiscent of vacation. Shake all ingredients vigorously, place in pretty glasses, and serve in a classic way with a pineapple slice and cocktail cherry.
Grenadine, lemon juice, orange juice, Tequila Gold, and ice cubes – that’s all you need for a good Tequila Sunrise. The cocktail classic is for all those who like it fruity. The golden version of the Mexican schnapps also ensures a rather mild taste and goes well with the orange.
Moscow Mule has now established itself on all cocktail menus. Rightly so, because highball has a long tradition that goes back to America in the 1940s. If you haven’t tried Moscow Mule yet, you should do so as soon as possible: Ginger beer, lime juice, vodka, and ice cubes are used to create a slightly spicy, sweet-tart cocktail that is served in copper cups and stays cool for a long time.
If you like to enjoy your cocktail hearty, spicy, and slightly hot, you should remember this classic! Bloody Mary is made on the basis of tomato juice, vodka, Tabasco, and Worcester sauce. Before you wonder now whether this is the right cocktail for you: As a counter drink after a long night of partying Bloody Mary is unbeatable! Are you convinced?
