Premium Vodka Concoctions
Refreshing drinks start with premium vodka. You can make a classic cocktail like a Seabreeze or Moscow Mule, or venture into new flavor profiles with infusions. Fruit flavours and vodka are the perfect partners. Add a bit of seltzer water or ginger beer to your standard recipe for an extra fizz to cool you down.
Vodka can also be infused with fresh fruit, vegetables, or herbs. This is where you get to be creative and imaginative. Think summer peaches, or strawberry and basil for a unique flavour that you can add to your favourite mixers and fruit mixers.
Sweet and Savory Tequila Beverages
When making a summer margarita, you’ll want to have fresh juice and wonderfully smooth tequila on hand. Fresh juice is important because it enhances the look of the cocktail while naturally sweetening it. Choosing your favourite juice is where you make summer come alive in your cocktail. Watermelon or strawberry margaritas are a sure win on a hot summer day. Citrus flavours can also be invigorating.
Use excellent tequila which gives strong citrus and agave flavours or mellow woody and spicy flavours. The next step in making the perfect margarita is to fill a shaker with plenty of ice and shake until you think you can’t shake anymore. You’ll have a nice cool drink with smooth flavours integrated into the best cocktail of the day.
Salting the rim doesn’t need to be done with regular salt. Stock your bar with different kinds of coarse salts including sweet and salty flavours. When you add salt to the rim of your glass, you intensify the flavours within the margarita.
