Virtual events: cocktail classics
19 November 2020
As part of our extensive virtual events programme covering cooking classes, wellbeing, crafts & networking, we hosted some successful cocktail classes to channel that inner bartender in you!
Our mixologist expert, Roberto Garcia, showed us how to create some tasty concoctions, from espresso martinis to Disaronno Sours.
We provided some lucky residents with all the ingredients they needed for the event and residents logged on across the UK and Dublin for a virtual class run by Roberto. Scroll down to find the ingredients to recreate the experience!
- 50ml Disaronno
- 25ml Fresh Lemon Juice
- 5ml Simple Syrup*
- 15ml Egg White
- Angostura Bitters
- Garnish: Lemon Peel
* Simple syrup: very easy to make, just need hot water and sugar, ratio 1 to 1, like 100gr sugar mixed with 100gr hot water, stir until sugar dissolved and let it cool.
- 50ml Disaronno
- 20ml Lemon Juice
- 5ml Simple syrup
- Top with soda (around 150ml depending on the glass you use)
- Garnished: Mint Spring
The glass for the Fizz can be a wine glass or a highball glass, or any tall glass.
- 25ml Tia Maria,
- 25ml Vodka,
- 50ml espresso,
- 5ml Sugar Syrup (Hot Water and Sugar, 1/1 ratio, stir for 60 seconds),
- 3 coffee beans for garnish,
- Martini Glass
Shake all Ingredients with ice and strain into a glass without ice.
- 50ml Tia Maria,
- 100ml Tonic
- Lemon Peel
Pour into a tall glass 100ml tonic, add ice, pour 50ml Tia Maria, twist the lemon peel on the top of the glass to relieve the oils.
That makes for some impressive looking drinks! You can always add in a few extras, such as blueberries to the Disaronno to give it that individual twist.
