Simpler. Better.™ Cocktails
Having fewer things, arranged into a cohesive aesthetic, creates an environment for contentment and fulfillment. The same goes for crafting a cocktail, minimally and intentionally. It’s like Danny Meyer once said, “A cocktail done right can really show your guests that you care.”
8 Steps to Create Your Own Simpler Better Cocktail
It’s easy to make your own cocktail, on a moment’s notice. Be sure you have a cocktail shaker, jigger, and muddler nearby. Then, follow the 8 steps below.
- Choose your alcohol.
- Decide if you want any fruit and/or herbs included in your mixture. If so, muddle them.
- Add your juices, milks, alcohols, and other liqueurs to the shaker.
- Add ice.
- Close the cap to your shaker. Shake vigorously for about 10-20 seconds.
- Strain into drinking glass.
- Add any bitters and/or garnishes, as desired.
- Serve and enjoy.
