A-Z of cocktails

It is very easy to get into a rut; eating and drinking what you know. I tended to drink Gin and Tonic, Margarita, Cuba Libre, Long Island Iced Tea, and only occasionally branch out. A week or so back, I decided to be a little more adventurous. Using an app that matches the contents of my liquor cabinet to recipes, I have started a journey through the alphabet of cocktails.

To date I have drunk
Amsterdam: Gin, Triple Sec, Orange juice, mint
Bloody Sharkbite: Dark Rum, Orange juice, Cranberry (a good drink without the rum too)
Crimean Cocktail: White wine, Triple Sec, Soda, Lemon Juice
Delilah: Gin, Triple Sec, Lemon juice
English Highball: Gin, Brandy, Sweet Vermouth, Soda

All of them have been interesting. The choice of C was made because I had opened a bottle of pretty poor white wine the night before; I think I shall repeat that only under same circumstances. The E is one that I can imagine drinking again and the B choice was excellent.

For some reason, I am now short on Triple Sec.

  1. The B drink sounds wonderful. I’ll have to give it a try.

    • Reached H this afternoon.
      Hat-Trick, which unsurprisingly has three ingredients. It is a mix of white and dark rum, with sweet vermouth to round-off the trio. Highly recommended; helped, I think, by tasty rums (eg not Barcadi)
