10 Classic Cocktails

Nov 22, 2019

A cocktail by definition is basically a mixture of different alcoholic drinks and a few other ingredients. The oldest definition of a cocktail came out in 1806 that said, ‘a stimulating beverage made from spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters’. I think this is accurate enough however the definitions have been changing thereon. This particular list talks about the different, not to mention awesome, cocktails that you can make at your home and enjoy.

In order to make some of these cocktails and many others that are not on the list you might need a few ‘tools’. You will need a muddler, a cocktail shaker, and a strainer. These are easy to find so you don’t have to sweat. Enjoy the list of classic cocktails and tell us about your favorite cocktail.

1. Tom Collins

A tablespoon of sugar syrup, juice from one lemon (medium) and 4 ounces of gin (around 2 measures) should do it. Stir all these together and add around four ice cubes. Fill with soda water and stir. The drink is ready, serve it immediately. Originally, this drink was made with Old Tom Gin (a sweetened Gin) but it is not like that anymore.
