"I'll have a martini, shaken, not stirred"...
These famous words are still remembered by Bond fans across the globe. Somehow the image Bond sipping on a beer just does not have the same presence, the same pizazz.
Although we all enjoy a beer once in awhile, there is something about having a cocktail that is made to your specifications and tastes that is alluring. So why be the same as every other person at the bar? Discover your own tastes and preferences. Always discard the straw.
May I suggest some of my favorites to get you started:
Manhattan - a classic drink. Contains whiskey, sweet red vermouth, bitters and the famous cherry. Always shaken please.
Black Russian - Kahlua and Vodka, need I say more?
Buck's Fizz - 2 parts orange juice, one part champagne. Delicious. Even for breakfast, or should I say especially for breakfast.
Martini - Gin and dry vermouth.
And gentlemen, lets please leave the daiquiri's and cosmo's for ladies.
