We tend to be creatures of habit and stick to the same cocktails, partly because we already have the necessary ingredients in our cupboards. The key ingredient in an Army and Navy is Orgeat syrup, a delicious combination of almonds, orange flower water, rosewater and sugar. It’s a fairly unknown ingredient but is definitely worth purchasing and will make a welcome addition to any drinks cabinet.
Traditionally made with cognac, orange liqueur and lemon juice, the Sidecar cocktail is a boozy drink that is slightly on the sour side. A sugared glass rim or the addition of some sugar syrup seems to be increasingly popular today; probably because of our sweet tooth.
A Vodka Sunset is a pretty summer cocktail that is so easy to make at home; a great party drink.
