When it comes to making just the right kind of cocktail, it’s good to know a few key drinks that will get any fun party or occasion started. ‘The Garibaldi’ is super simple; it’s made with Campari and orange juice. The easiest way to make this drink is to use 3 parts orange juice and 1 part Campari. All you do it fill a Collins glass with ice, add the Campari, top it with O.J., and stir. A good old fashioned ‘Rum and Coke’ will always be a hit; to make it, just add ice to a Collins glass, pour in 2 oz. of white rum, and fill it with cold Coca-Cola. Simple and to the point is what this drink is all about. ‘The Shandy’ is another really popular drink to make; it’s a refreshing drink made from beer mixed with lemonade. It’s made with equal parts of both, but feel free to adjust the amounts of each ingredient to your liking. Add ice to it and stir it once the rum and Coke are in the glass.
A really great drink that dates back to 1949 is the ‘Black Russian.’ It has a deep, rich color and distinct flavor. To create it, just fill a rocks glass with ice, add one part Kahlua and two parts vodka, and then stir. ‘The Dark ‘n’ Stormy’ is light and refreshing; it’s made with Gosling’s Black Rum and ginger beer over ice. 2 oz. of rum to 4 oz. ginger beer is a common way to mix it up. One of the favorites among the masses is the adult version of the ‘Arnold Palmer.’ You will fill a rocks glass with ice, then fill it halfway with lemonade and top it off with sweet tea vodka. There are many fun drinks to try out with your friends. Enjoy a yummy one today.
