Martini cocktails. Ever wanted to feel like 007 ? sipping these martini´s might get you there or atleast make you feel like it.
Shaken NOT stirred ? even tho 007 is a classy and sophisticated caracter, shaking a Martini is usually a wrong way to do it, if you ask me. The right way to make Martini cocktails is almost always to stir them, but that said, if you got class like 007, it can always be argued.
If you’re sipping one of these fantastic martini styled cocktails, provided below, I hope you get the feeling of being as classy as 007 is. If not – then I’m very confident that, you’ll like the delicious martini cocktails that I made.
These Martini cocktails also shows you, different expressions and how versatile a Martini cocktail can be, while still falling under the category of a Martini.
Cocktails with agave spirits also called mezcal and tequila cocktails. These cocktails have one thing in common if you ask me – they love to be paired with fruit.
Tequila cocktails with fruit you say ? Yes I have provided four delicious cocktails below, using agave spirits and fruit, these cocktails is full of summer vibes and perfect to enjoy anytime on a sunny day, or when you’re in the mood for a delicious and refreshing cocktail with tequila (agave) that is fresh, fruity and full of summer vibes.
Try them out – you won’t regret it !
If you haven’t tried mezcal before, it can be a little overwhelming spirit. The smoked agave taste is distinctive, and because of that I like to pair mezcal and tequila when I use mezcal in my cocktails, to get the best of both spirits, and because I think it gives the best balance most of the time.
Cheers & Enjoy!
