Master of Cocktails - The Strawberry Daiquiri

by Ben Ellefsen     30. June 2014 11:53

Master of Cocktails Strawberry Daiquiri

Right then y'all. It’s time once again for #MasterofCocktails. This week's drink (and next week's come to think of it), are both drinks that you *should* feel comfortable ordering if they're made correctly.

They are both pink though. Very pink.

This one (as you may have guessed) is a Strawberry Daiquiri. We're making it properly, which means no strawberry syrup, no strawberry liqueur and absolutely no sweet and sour mix. Shall we?

Master of Cocktails - The Mojito

Master of Cocktails Mojito

Sticking with the Daiquiri theme, we're (finally) making Mojitos this week on #MasterofCocktails. It's taken a while to get round to it, but is there a more crowd-pleasing summer drink?

Now the very first thing you're going to need to do is take a small amount of granulated sugar...

and do this with it...

Master of Cocktails - The Daiquiri

Master of Cocktails Daiquiri

In this week's #MasterofCocktails we’re making what is probably the most abused drink in the history of all time: The Daiquiri.

It's such a blisteringly simple drink when done correctly. Rum. Sugar. Lime. That's all.

Now, there are some variations worth lauding (we're going to do a few over the next couple of weeks), but the classic version is one that should be in everyone's repertoire.

The recipe really couldn't be simpler. Can you remember the following?

Master of Cocktails - Piña Colada

Master of Cocktails Pina Colada

This week's #MasterofCocktails is a bank holiday treat – Piña Coladas! Now, there are two reasonably important 'tricks' to this drink, well, one really...

The first trick is NO ICE. We're not using any in the preparation of this drink – instead we're using frozen pineapple. The second trick is to use an uber-ripe pineapple. All of the sweetness from this drink comes from the fruit. So, like I said – sort of one trick, but nevertheless.

We're also going to be weighing all the ingredients this time around, just for ease of reference.

Master of Cocktails - Mai Tai

Master of Cocktails Mai Tai

This week's #MasterofCocktails is an absolute doosie. We're making a Mai Tai. Probably one of the most abused and under-appreciated drinks in the world.

Now, if you've ever ordered one of these in a bar, you'll either have had a delicious variant on a Daiquiri, or a juice-laden mess that bears as much resemblance to a proper cocktail as a bottle of Hooch and an apple schnapps chaser.

Can you guess which version we're going to be making?

For Christmas this year…

by Michael Orson     4. December 2013 11:02

Dear Santa

With plans to make Christmas 2013 closely resemble a night out with Charles Bukowski during his downtime, I’ve been thinking hard about what booze I want. Historically, I would have written to Santa Claus, but I recently read a thought-provoking essay by biologist Dickie Dawkins and now no longer believe in his existence. This, then, is an open letter to anyone who knows me and wants to get me the boozes.

Rumbullion!

by Michael Orson     4. November 2011 15:01
You wouldn't steal a pirate ship.

That's right folks; Professor Cornelius Ampleforth has done it again! After the superb reception Bathtub Gin and the fabulous Proprietary Barley Spirit Drink received, he’s moved onto the spiced rum market for his latest stunner!

The Professor’s newest concoction is loosely based on the kind of rich, warming blends enjoyed by the seafaring fraternity of yesteryear (roughly “some” hundred years ago). It couldn't have been better-timed either, as the mercury is quickly dropping and nothing warms the cockles (and indeed other appendages) like a hearty spiced rum! We are thrilled to present to you...More...

Ron Abuelo Centuria

by Michael Orson     5. October 2011 12:01

Ben came into the office excitedly today, clutching a bottle of rum. He thrust it at me declaring Nick Masters (a chap from Ron Abuelo’s UK distributor Hi-Spirits) had heralded it as “one of the best liquids ever”. I dutifully cracked it open for a tasting and, as everyone knows, nothing beats the early morning blues better than a 9am rum tasting (#DrinkAware).


Centuria is the flagship from Ron Abuelo, and they age it for as much as 30 years in the solera system, using Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrels. The mix of JD’s signature foam banana flavour, vanilla, and some serious old Panama rum is a very exciting prospect… More...
