It’s Friday! Who doesn’t feel like enjoying a cocktail with friends after a week at work? Why not give your happy hour a twist this Friday and go international?
Here are a few of the most popular cocktails from around the world:
USA – The Sazerac
Said to be the oldest cocktail in the United States, this old faithful has been around for over a century. Orginally mixed with absinthe, although banned in the US, now all you need is a chilled glass, one cube of sugar, three drops of Bitters and Pernod to prewash your glass.
Bermuda – The Dark ‘n Stormy
Gosling’s rum has copyrighted the ingredients and the name. Orginally a tiple among pirates, the British Royal Navy got wind and added spicy ginger beer over ice.
Italy – The Negroni
Named after Count Camillo Negroni who asked or something special in Florence one evening, the gin cocktail was born. Negroni Bar in Florence is the place to taste this drink, but why not give your guests a break from all the G&Ts and try something new.
Why not try one this weekend? Or two? Oh, OK, who are we trying to kid? We’ll call it research…
