When it comes to cocktails there are so many choices. There are molecular cocktails, cocktails that can be lit on fire, ones served with gimmicky umbrellas and then, of course, there are the classics. These are the safe choices, the tried and tested drinks that you know you love. They’re easy to whip up at home whether you’re an aspiring mixologist or a cocktail novice.
But, what defines a classic cocktail? Well, we believe classic cocktails are the ones that have been around for years and still continue to be popular. Whilst new mixes, ideas and flavours will come along, the classics are those that endure.
Classic cocktails include the Mojito, Pina Colada, Long Island Iced Tea, Blue Lagoon, Margarita, Cosmopolitan and many more.
If you’re not sure what to mix up first, a great tip is to first pick the base spirit you’d like to begin with and then work from there. For example, if you fancy vodka as your base spirit you could whip up a Cosmopolitan or White Russian. If gin is your choice you could conjure up a Gin Fizz or Negroni. The options are endless!
