|WHIP UP A CLASSIC|
It's easy to concoct new cocktails, the art however lies in getting the classics right. Zdenek Kastanek, a Grey Goose Ambassador, tells you how to shake it right this festive season.
Fill your glass with ice, pour 50ml of vodka and top it up with freshly squeezed juice. Garnish with an orange wedge. It works amazingly with fresh sweet lime juice and a touch of soda or as a Greyhound with fresh grapefruit juice. Add a pinch of salt and you have 'The Salty Dog'.
Trick: Use good ice, a beautiful glass, super-premium quality vodka and freshly squeezed juice. Use the hand citrus juicer and don’t over squeeze as the drink could taste bitter.
Grog is a hot or cold drink of rum, sugar or molasses, lemon juice and water. Take 50ml black rum, 20ml honey syrup and 15ml of lemon juice. Trick: Add water to honey, cardamom pods, cinnamon stick and cloves.
Blood and Sand
This is made out of 20ml scotch whisky, 20ml cherry herring, 20ml sweet vermouth, 20ml fresh orange juice. Add all ingredients into an empty three-piece shaker, top up with ice and shake hard.
Trick: Don't shake too long and hard as the deep flavours of the whisky are lost. Garnish with orange zest.
