Mixing Tips

General

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

Glassware

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

Technique

  • While pressing the citrus fruit, for example, lemon or lime. You could use the pressed fruit and give it into the shaker as a fragrant ingredient. It will release some of the oils while shaking the drink. After you better double-strain it.
  • If you double-strain the drink, it will hold those tiny ice particles back. Otherwise, they might float on top of the glass. It will further dilute the drink a little bit more. Some people like it, and some people don't.

Garnish

  • If you put a citrus wedge on the rim, the guest can squeeze it if he needs more acidity.

Editor Recipe Notes

The Tanqueray Rangpur pairs well with lime juice and lime oils. We like to shake out Gimlet and use the whole squeezed lime as an additional ingredient.

You just need to add a little sugar and shake it well. You will get a smooth, crisp, refreshing cocktail with high alcoholic content.
