Imagine this: your alarm goes off at 7:00 with that horrendous tone you set to torment yourself, you force yourself up, rush through the morning routines, head to work, hit yourself with heavy doses of caffeine, delve into your work headlong, rush to lunch which by now is your mid-day escape route, return to your desk that has now lost its initial appeal, bear all obstacles that come your way till you get back home and when you do, you have a good mind about not returning the next day.
However, expectedly, you do return; you repeat that torturous routine and by the end of the month, you’re in dire need to unwind and you have all the means for so. Let these cocktails do the needful because you know, you’re totally worth it.
10 Cocktails To International Sip Better-
Sunrise in Mexico
Can’t decide whether on tequila or cocktail? Here’s an answer from Mexico. Made with Amaretto almond liqueur, tequila, filled to the brim with orange juice and sweetened with syrup, this cocktail is the perfect blend to unwinding.
Many of us don’t like the taste of alcohol but we love the effect it has on us. Here’s one aromatic liquid poison from Netherlands. Made from the juniper flower, it is aromatic with a floral aftertaste but quite malty and smoky like whisky. Best of both worlds I’d say.
UK’s popular cocktail, considered to be the most potent cocktail in the world. This drink contains 100 percent alcohol with no mixers. With gin, vodka, brandy, blackberry liqueur and Absinthe, this cocktail should not be consumed when alone!
A fascinating Japanese concoction of Sake with coconut water. With the crispiness of the Sake and the soothing, mellow texture of coconut water, makes this a pleasant 10/10 cocktail.
Vanilla Chocolate Malt
Served at London’s OXO tower bar,this innocent concoction has wrapped itself around my bucket-list. It combines Absolut Vanilla vodka, almond milk and Mozart dry chocolate spirit, with vanilla sugar and malted milk. Absolutely gorg.
Chile claims to have invented this blend of pisco brandy, citrus, sugar, and sometimes egg white and bitters although Peru is where the first Pisco Sour was mixed. Point is, you can impartially drink up in either of the places. Perks of rivalry works to travelers’ advantage.
In a glass with ice, combine 90 millilitres of vodka with 30 millilitres of coffee liqueur and top it with cream or milk, to your liking. What’s Russia without vodka. Also, if you’re not a dairy sport, you can try the Black Russian instead.
Subak-Soju combines fresh watermelon juice with Soju, Korea’s most popular alcoholic beverage. Just like the Koreans you know, this drink is just as bright as they are.
Hailing from a fancy Singapore hotel, this is one exotic cocktail in itself. Made from a serious array of fresh juices and bitters this cocktail calls for a well-stocked fridge situation.
The first time I came across this cocktail was when Ryan Gosling, charmingly prepared it from scratch for Emma Stone in Crazy, Stupid, Love. Consisting of two to four ounces of Peychaud’s Bitters, two ounces of rye whiskey, with one cube of sugar and a coating of Absinthe on the inside of the chilled glass.
Benjamin Franklin said, In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is Freedom, in water there is bacteria.
Stay happy, Stay the way you like.
