Colorful cocktails – mind boggling magical drinks

Mind boggling, magical, colorful cocktails.

These gorgeus looking, colorful cocktails are both fun to make and tastes delicious. Blue and purple are my favorite colors, also for cocktails. When serving these show stopping colorful cocktails, it always draws attention with the “wow effect”.

Infuse your own gin with butterfly pea flower (LINK HERE) or buy one of the gin brands that produce them, and start making these visual stunning drinks. Be careful and think your presentation through, when using ingredients with acidity together with butterfly pea flower infused gin, as it reacts and changes color when exposed to acidity.

Below I have provided what I think, is three “must try” cocktails, that looks amazing and tastes wonderful. So why not get started and make your own mind boggling and stunning colorful cocktails ?.

Tip! If you decide to make butterfly pea flower infused gin by yourself, I can recommend to search on google, or try on ebay where they can be found easily.

Cheers & enjoy!

Old fashioned is a true iconic classic, and a cocktail every connoisseur should enjoy once in a while with a good quality bourbon or whiskey being rye, whiskey, whisky, or something new and modern like these wonderful serves provided in this post.

The thing I like the most about old fashioned, is that you get a true feel of the spirit and most of the time I just want to support the notes from the spirit with the sweetener, bitters or use a small amount of modifyers which compliments the spirit. To me an old fashioned is all about the spirit, being in full focus.

Below you’ll find five delicious modern variations of an old fashioned cocktail, that I think you should give a try.

Cheers and enjoy!
