A great bartender once shared with me an uncommon pearl of wisdom: «the best cocktails should never have more than 3 ingredients... and ice is one of the ingredients»! Too often there is a risk of masking the flavor of the main alcoholic drink when too many ingredients have been mixed together.
Here are some suggestions of delicious and simple combinations:
(serve in a tall glass with ice cubes)
• Bourbon, lime juice and ginger ale
• Vodka, orange juice and lemon soda
• Gin and Black Sambucca
• Rum and pineapple juice
• Rye, Kahlua and milk
Moderation and balance are key...
