Mixology is the art of cocktail making. It is finding new flavors and aromas, mixing together different kinds of liquids, herbs, fruit etc… A mixologist is considered to be a liquid chef, always inventing new cocktails and mixing new flavors that have never been thought of.
Most people think that you can make cocktails only if you have a fully equipped bar and a shiny shaker. All you really need is experience, learning from every attempt, from every combination of two or more ingredients. You also benefit and learn from every sip you and your guests take from your creation, the comments, remarks and the requests for another drink!
So what’s the best way to start? The most important ingredient is ice. The majority of cocktails are chilled with ice and either shaken with a shaker or stirred with a long spoon.
The best way to pick the drink we want to make is to take a classic cocktail and give it a twist that will make it unique and unforgettable. Let’s take the Mojito for example, a classic mojito is loved by all, and is a refreshing and simple cocktail. What if we add to it some watermelon or grapes or cucumbers? All of these easy-to-find ingredients makes a whole new cocktail with amazing, different flavors.
The SodaStream Night Spirit series makes home mixology so simple, the special flavors combine a number of ingredients we can use for our cocktails. The Mojito syrup is certainly a favorite, it has such a unique taste! The mint really comes out of it, the color is a perfect light green and the aroma superb.
So all that is left to do is make a cocktail from one of the SodaStream Night Spirit flavors and start mixing!
