In Tipsy Tips

 

-Ice Ice Baby…

-Make bigger & clearer ice blocks for that good old scotch or super cool cocktail party. No need for anything fancy, just fill up a larger sealable container and pop it in the freezer.

-Simple step ups!

Simple syrup is used in many cocktails, it’s a mix of 50/50 sugar and water boiled to make a syrup. Let’s step up the game by using some other sweeteners in your cocktails. Agave Syrup is delicious in margaritas (plus it’s a great sugar alternative), maple syrup or even honey are other great syrups to play with. To take it a step further, you can steep flavours into your syrup. For example, tea, herbs, spices, flowers etc for when you really feel exotic.

-Get some Tools:

Simple mixer sticks, to a variety of cocktail glasses, a cocktail shaker, a jigger (to measure your shots) – or use a shot glass. If you don’t want to buy a shaker then pour the cocktail between 2 glasses (the old-fashioned way)

 

-Fresh fruit juice for the win:

Keep it seasonal, so buy the fruits that are in season. Food Lover’s Market knows all about this! Make freshly squeezed juice yourself, and if you don’t have a juicer then buy 100% fresh fruit juices.

 

-Infuse your own spirits

Add lemon peels or orange peels to your Vodka, or freshly sliced ginger to your whiskey. How does DIY Fireball sound? (Fireball is a sensational cinnamon infused whiskey, with the beautiful burn), it’s extremely satisfying and even more so when you do it yourself. Here’s how: {Link to recipe}

-Cocktail Jugs!

Make cocktails in batches so that you don’t have to keep making everytime someone finishes up. They can pour it themselves from a jug.
