This cocktail consists of Perry’s Tot Navy-strength gin (2 ounces) and is flavoured with equal proportions of fresh honeydew, cucumber, mint, and lime juice. Sometimes, a bartender will give the drink an anise flavour with some dash of absinthe. With richness of natural flavours, the drink is easy to nip and hits back with a kick in no time. The drink is good enough to get drunk easily, as one shot has more power than two regular shots to jolt you.
3. CUBA LIBRE
This cocktail takes on the name from its native land. First introduced in Cuban bar house, in early 1900’s, this classical cocktail makes a perfect blend of rum and coke. Just coalesce it with some white rum brands (Bacardi Gold), a double soda and top it up with some lime. According to Bacardi, this cocktail is ranked as the second most popular drink that is believed to have an origin during the Spanish American War. Having gone global, this drink is served in different parts of the world under different names. The Aussies call it Rumbo, the Americans ask for it as Mentirita (“a little lie”) and in Spanish shout for it as Ron-Cola.
2. THE CRIPPLER
This outrageous drink, a blend of alcoholic ingredients from top to bottom, is a mean cocktail concoction. This drink is a preparation of Rye whiskey, Rhum Agricole, yellow Chartreus, Jagertee liqueur, all taken in measures of 3/4 of an ounce. Mixed with half an ounce of mescal and two dashes of barbecue-flavoured pungent, the Crippler is indeed a dangerous drink for the brave. Blend all the ingredients nicely and serve it with ice. The moment you drink deep of it, the peaking alcoholic content hits up like a punch. Owing to its three main alcoholic elements, the cocktail more often is referred as Trippler, for one drink is equal to three regular drinks.
If you picture yourself walking like a zombie after slurping the cocktail, you probably are one in every sense. Because of its pungent tang and overpowering taste, this drink is surely not for the light hearted. Rum forms the main base ingredient of the drink that is churned in with fruit juices. The drink is prepared with El Dorado, Appleton Estate V/X and Rhum Barbancourt rum in measures of ½ ounce each. Before serving, the cocktail is topped with Coruba dark rum, lime juice, grapefruit and dashes of absinthe. Lastly, drape the drink with orgeat syrup, cinnamon and curaçao liqueur. Thanks to all these fruit juices, the drink is sweet and full of flavours which make sipping it down an easy task belying the strength the liquor holds.
