Getting ready to go out cocktails

 


Video guide to cocktails

Tom: This is Steve, we're going to make some quick easy serves, nice cocktails, get you in the mood before you go out. We're going to be using some Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, some Bacardi Oakheart, some Southern Comfort and some Finlandia vodka.

How to make a Southern Nectar cocktail

The first drink we're going to make is a Southern Nectar, so if you want to ice up the first glass for me, right the way to the top.

Steve: OK.

Tom:  We're going to be using 35mls of the Southern Comfort, which is going to be three quarters of the measuring glass. Perfect, do you want to pop that straight in? And then very simply, we're just going to top it up half with cranberry and half with apple juice.

That's perfect, and the other half with the apple juice. And then to garnish, we're just going to use a fresh wedge of lemon over the top of the drink. There you go. No hassle at all, really quick and easy.

Steve: That's great.

How to make an Apple Jack cocktail

Tom: The second drink we're going to make is called an Apple Jack. We're going to be using the famous Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey, so if you want to ice up another glass for me, please, Steve.

Steve: All the way to the top, Tom?

Tom:  All the way to the top. This time we're going to be using 25mls, so it's only half of the measuring glass this time.

Steve: Sure, OK.

Tom:  And then again, very simply, we're just going to top it up with some apple juice.

Steve: Straight to the top?

Tom:  Straight to the top again, yes. And to garnish, we're going to use a fresh slice of apple, quite simply just drops in the drink like that.

Steve:  Super.

How to make a Smoking Rum cocktail

Tom:  The next drink we're going to make is a bit more interesting, we're going to be making a Smoking Rum with Bacardi Oakheart. This is a good one to get people talking, a really nice flavour. Brilliant.

We're going to use 50mls this time, so a full measuring glass. That's wonderful. And another measuring glass of apple juice straight in.

Brilliant and then two wedges of fresh lime in, a nice bit of citrus put in through the middle of the drink. And again, very simply, just top it up with ginger beer. That's your Smoking Rum.

Steve: That's cool, that one.

Tom: That's a good one. And lastly, we're going to use the Finlandia vodka, if you want to ice up another glass for me. And we're going to be using 50mls of our Finlandia, so again, a full measuring glass straight in, lovely.

And we're going to do half apple juice and half lemonade. So halfway up with your apple juice and half with the lemonade. And then again, very simply, we're just going to use a fresh piece of lime for the garnish. There you have it, really quick, really easy.

Steve: I think it's pretty amazing, really. We're all quite used to drinking pretty plain beers and normal stuff, they're all pretty funky drinks. I wouldn't have expected to making this here today and drinking these wonderful coloured drinks. It's great.
