For this Mixology Monday XXXVII: First Time (LUPEC Boston) I prepared two my favorite cocktails. This two cocktails is very discovered by me and I found “gold” proportion and technique for it. This is my ultimate or supreme-version.
First cocktail is a Mai Tai. Pure tiki-classic and best cocktail in the world.
30 ml aged Cuban rum Havana Club Anejo 7 Anos
30 ml aged dark rum Angostura 1824
15 ml orange curacao
15 ml orgeat
5 ml rock candy syrup
1 dash Angostura bitter
Shake all with a lot of cracked ice. Serve in apropriate rock glass with crushed ice. Garnish with beautiful flower.
This SupreMai-Tai has very smooth, a little sweet and gorgeous taste.
I try to use different flowers for my SupreMai-Tai. All of it look very good. For example – narcissus.
Second cocktail is Mojito. It is very simple cocktail. The preparation of the Mojito is an art.
1 tsp. sugar
10 ml fresh lime juice
10 fresh mint leaves (Mentha piperita var. alba)
70 ml white cuban rum Havana Club Anejo Blanco
50 ml soda water (alkaline mineral water)
Muddle mint with sugar and juice. Add crushed ice, rum and stir well. Add crushed ice and sida. Garnish with lime wedge and mint sprig.
SupreMojito has bright and very fresh taste of mint and rum. It is very smooth and light cocktail.
