Best cocktail recipes for the weekend

16 October 2015 restaurants-brasseries


The weekend is a time to relax and treat yourself to a delicious cocktail or two, so here are some of the top cocktail recipes to try:

Martini

TBright-Field_Lightinghe classic cocktail enjoyed by James Bond is easy to make. There are several variations of this classic cocktail but a favorite is two parts of gin to one part of vermouth with a dash of orange bitters. Shake and add a green olive.

Margarita

The Margarita is the classic cocktail associated with Mexico. To make two servings, mix four ounces of quality Tequila with two ounces of Cointreau and one and a half ounces of fresh lime juice. Shake with ice for about 15 seconds. Rub two glasses in coarse sea salt to coat the rim. Strain the Margarita and garnish with lime wheels.

Bloody Mary

The secret of a good Bloody Mary is to use high-quality tomato juice, not the cheap variety made from concentrate. Mix the tomato juice with a measure of vodka then add a dash of Worcester sauce.

Tom Collins

Tom_Tonic_CollinsTom Collins is one of the oldest classic cocktails, first made over 150 years ago. Add two ounces of gin, the juice of half a lemon, and one teaspoon of sugar to a tumbler. Stir thoroughly until the sugar is dissolved. Fill the glass with ice cubes and soda water.

Alternately, if you want to be pampered on your weekend, visit a Hallmark Hotel and have a cocktail served to you in luxurious surroundings.
