Cocktails can never run out of fashion there is a cocktail to match every season. Creativity rides up a level as mixologists flaunt their genius with playful presentations. Imagine a frozen orchid in a sparkling Cosmopolitan, or a mysterious blue fire on your Vodka drink! Yes that’s the grin we’re talking about. The good news is that you can do it too.

Stirring up the perfect cocktail is the easiest way to impress someone, but only if you manage to get it right. If you have the ability to shake, stir and strain and love to experiment, dive into the world of mixology. “Throwing a cocktail party is probably the coolest thing to do. Think pitchers of Cosmopolitans, Margaritas, Sangria and wonderfully flavoured stuff. You don’t have to be a pro to get it right - just follow the proportions and you’re all set,” says Alfonso..

Some Tips for a Cocktail Party

1. Plan the cocktail menu in advance, then calculate the amount of liquor and other ingredients you will need. An overstocked bar is better than running out.

2. Ready the bar - squeeze juices, prepare garnishes and lay out the glasses to make the process of mixing quicker.

3. Have plenty of clean, clear, aged ice on hand. The key to success lies in stocking up loads of ice. The more rocks the merrier.

4. Now that you’ve got the ice, it’s time to fill up the glasses. That’s the first lesson in mixing a drink. Ice goes in first, followed by spirit and everything else.

5. The other integral elements are the bits and pieces that go in to elevate the most ordinary cocktail to great heights like lemons, oranges, mint leaves, starfruit , pomelo (papanus), kiwi fruit and strawberries.

6. Use coloured flavoured spirits for drama and visual appeal. A splash of blue curacao as a finishing touch, a hint of Campari or a drizzle of crème de menthe works wonders.
