Mixing Tips

General

  • Start with the cheapest ingredients (the syrup) first.

Mise En Place

  • Keep all equipment and ingredients within range. It will be easier and faster to mix the drink.

Glassware

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

Technique

  • If you double-strain the drink after shaking it, it will prevent those tiny particles of the herbs or spices from floating on top of the guest's glass.

Garnish

  • Always use fresh herbs for the garnish.

Mise en Place

Ice:

crushed ice for the serving glass
ice cubes for shaking

Bar Equipment:

Jigger

1x sprig of mint

Editor Recipe Notes

I remembered a version I read some month ago in a book.
I was impressed and surprised that you could mix fantastic drinks with a liqueur, which I usually serve straight after dinner.

One of our regulars likes to drink Fernet Branca. And asked me if I could mix a nice drink for him.
So I simply made him a Smash and Sour style drink with some Lemon and Thyme.

Actually, it’s charming to try different Herbal Liqueurs in a drink and just mix them as a sour. The liqueur already has a lot of flavors. It contains sugar, so in the end, you can modify it with an additional herb and some acidity. So by the end, if you have some shelfware at the Bar or at home, why not just try it by yourself and be surprised =)
