The classic Bond Martini is always shaken not stirred. Bond always knew what to do in when it came to his drink, but what about you. How well do you know how to make drinks? And you do know the difference between whiskey and bourbon? Well, some things are good to know but you don’t have to always know everything.
If you are looking to impress your guests at your party make them a drink that is not common. The key to choosing an uncommon drink is to get ideas from the common. What do I mean by get ideas from the common drinks? Well, if your guests are use to having strawberry margaritas then make sure you replace it with other sweet fruity drinks.
You may be asking “how do I get or find recipes for mixed drinks”? Well, you do research online, in cook books or in a library. Believe it or not the library is still a very useful tool. You can go and check out many different books on mixed drinks and cocktails. Once you find a book you like you can always go to places online like Amazon.com to purchase it so that you always have a reference.
