How to offer a great cocktail


Whether you are a bar, restaurant, a fancy pub or even a homeowner looking to impress your friends with your home bar, then you must be able to provide a good cocktail.

At first making a cocktail may seem tricky as you may think getting the mixtures right takes skill that only well trained and skilled bartenders are capable of.

However, you can make a great cocktail by simply having the right ingredients and the right catering equipment.

All you need are the following:


  • A cocktail shaker
  • Mixer
  • Bar EquipmentIngredients to make your cocktail


Choose a type of spirit that you want to use in your cocktail.      
  • Vodka
  • Gin
  • Cachaça
  • Neutral Grain Spirit
  • Soju


The types of whiskey include:
  • Bourbon
  • Scotch
  • Rye


Get a good sturdy and well-made cocktail shaker. In order to combine your ingredients together, you are definitely going to need a cocktail shaker. Chose a good vendor who specialises in bar supplies


Poor all the ingredients into your new cocktail shaker and and shake vigorously, this can take anywhere from 10 to 20 seconds( tip make sure the shaker is very cold). This Vigorous shaking will ensure all the ingredients have blended nicely together ensuring you aren’t getting an overwhelming amount of fruit juice or alcohol.


The next step is pouring the drink out. (Make sure you have the right glasses.)


It may be time to invest in new bar equipment especially cocktail glasses. Presentation is an important factor for a good cocktail just as it is for food.  A demure coupe glass or chiselled tumbler makes all the difference when making the ‘world’s best cocktail. Make sure you find a good bar supplier.


The garnish of the cocktail is also a very important factor. It brings the whole drink together and gives the drink that classy and professional look. To get the garnish just right you can use lime or lemon peel. To get that professional look why not try a bonzer twist blade for cocktails. Using the twist blade by bonzer will help you to get that professional garnish.
