Mixing Tips

Glassware

  • A chilled glass keeps your drink longer and more enjoyable. Your used ice will melt slower, and the taste will stay longer.

Non Alcoholic Ingredients

  • Make sure your carbonated filler is cold and fresh.

Technique

  • If you want to layer a liquid onto another. Pour very slowly, and you can use a spoon for help.Further, if you pour over the ice or over the garnish, it will keep the liquids more separate.

Editor Recipe Notes

Since the opening, we have been serving the Dark & Stormy cocktail with homemade Ginger Beer.
How do we do it? We combine fresh lemon juice, ginger juice, simple syrup, and water. After we fill it into PET bottles, put a unique cap on and carbonate it by hand. Later on, we pour it into the smaller bottles.

This process already takes some time, but what is really a pain is to squeeze the ginger.

You have to chop the ginger, use a high-quality juicer, and the entire process takes around 4-6 hours just to get 3 liters of ginger juice.
We seal, vacuum the liquid and store it in the freezer. On-demand, we are using it for ginger beer.
