Tales of the Cocktail kicks off today, and although I couldn't be there in person (I sadly had a work conflict), I feel like I'm still there in spirit! And this handy dandy illustrated guide to 30 cocktails, from Food Republic , will certainly help us mix up something to drink away the sadness of missing this epic event. Covering pretty much every classic you should have under your belt (and more), this list is as educational as it is lovely to look at! Enjoy! Illustration by Mike…
It's happy hour again: The 20 most popular cocktails
The warming colours in this design really help to make it that little bit more interesting! I love how they have perfectly recreated popular drinks by illustrating them to show you what each one looks like!
The Mojito is a famous Cuban original and is a very popular drink in summer. The combination of mint and citrus makes this an unbelievably satisfying and refreshing drink. When making the drink, the mint leaves should only be lightly muddled just enough to release the essential oils—you don’t want to shred them!
Long Island Iced Tea is a popular summer drink and consists of many different spirits and is strong compared to similarly sized highball drinks as the alcohol to mixer ratio is higher. It gets its similar in both colour and taste to iced tea.
The Margarita is a popular cocktail made with tequila, triple sec and lime juice. The drink is sometimes served with salt on the rim of the iconic glass named after the drink, which is similar to the cocktail glass but steps in, creating a “well” at the bottom.
The Strawberry Daiquiri is a perfect summertime rum cocktail; a fresh strawberry-citrus slush that you can enjoy with your rum. It is more popular than basic Daiquiri. The sweetness of strawberries and the kick of lime make the Strawberry daiquiri a real crowd pleaser of a cocktail. Buy Rum Online in UK http://liquoronline.co.uk
