Get the perfect mix in your home bar:-
Stock up liquors such as vodka, rum, tequila and whisky.
Always buy lightly-flavoured vodka and mild rum for making cocktails.
Mix orange, peach, lemon or strawberry juices with alcohols to invent your own signature flavour.
Apart from juices, add cocktail flavouring syrups such as Blue Curacao, Grenadine, Cointreau, and Kahlua into your cocktail.
Buy a cocktail set that has measuring glasses, shakers and jiggers.
When experimenting with flavours, keep in mind what sort of fruits go well with which drink. A Caprioska would taste great with fruits like plum and cranberry as they go well with a white spirit like vodka.
Remember that some liquors such as whiskey do not taste great with fresh fruits. Grenadine, a syrup made from pomegranates would taste good with whiskey.
You can use most of the fruits of your liking with Daiquiri, a rum based drink.
