Quite simply the answer is… both are great.
In the dawn
of the cocktail revolution everything was ‘Make-Your-
Own’. There were cocktails like: Ants in Your Pants, Bee
Knees, Fluffy Ruffles and Poop-Poop-A Doop (honestly
we are not making this stuff up).
Today some of the drinks from that by-gone era are still
popular: Margarita, Manhattan, Cosmopolitan, Martini’s
(there are more Martinis than you can shake a stick at)
There really isn’t a lot to making your own simple
cocktail. Now there are pretty fancy ones with lots of
ingredients too. There are tons of books that have great
recipes. Of course, on-line there are scads of recipes.
Pick a flavour and a liquor or liqueur. Some people like
rum based cocktails, others like vodka or gin based
ones. We have one below made in Portugal from
Morello Cherries. Yum.
Pre-mixed cocktails take all the guess work out of it
for you. Pick a drink that you like: Margarita, Mojito,
Cosmopolitan or Sex on the Beach. Chill… Shake…
Pour… Enjoy. Enjoying with friends is even better.
Always enjoy responsibly, of course.
When you come in we will have some easy recipes for
you for the yummy liqueur.
