Making cocktails can often feel like a lost art, but Buzzfeed recently published a great list of 21 Cocktails You Should Learn to Make in Your Twenties. The cocktail recipes range from the simple and classic, like a Martini and a Bloody Mary, to more complicated and sophisticated drinks, like a Moscow Mule or a Mojito. Here are a few of the highlights from the article!
- Classic margarita on the rocks. The key to the perfect margarita is the ratio of tequila to orange liqueur to lime juice, which should be 2:1:1. This drink is one of the best cocktails to have for any and every occasion!
- Bloody Mary. This brunch staple requires quite a few ingredients, but it’s worth the effort. Or if you’re feeling lazy, you could always use a pre-made mix and add ingredients to it. Don’t forget the garnish, whether it’s a celery stalk, pickle spear, or olive!
- Lime daiquiri. When most people hear the word ¨daiquiri¨ they think of an icy strawberry drink with a tiny umbrella in it, but this drink is much more sophisticated than that. It’s made with just white rum, lime juice, and simple syrup.
Which of these cocktail recipes do you think is the best? Are there any cocktails that aren’t on the list?
