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.

Taste of some russian names

Idea of this post is exploring of some cocktails named with female russian names. I found five cocktails of this kind. Taste of some female russian names. Some of this cocktails are pure and famous classiс – Ninotchka Cocktail. The Anouchka Cocktail is a signature drink of Salvatore Calabrese. This post I devoted all my female friends :)

First cocktail is famous Ninotchka Cocktail which named in honour of Gretta Garbo in “Ninotchka” movie (1939).

This strong and elegant cocktail has comlex taste of vermouth and fruit with amazing bitter note in the aftertaste.

Ace of Clubs

This cocktail was created in 30s of XIX century probably in the one bar with same name in New York by unknown barman. A combination of rum, lime juice and white creme de cacao sounds so intriguing for me.

The Ace of Clubs Cocktail (Коктейль Туз Треф)

Ace of Clubs

60 ml golden rum
15 ml white creme de cacao
15 ml fresh lime juice

Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass.

I use my new rum – Ron Varadero Oro 5 Anos (Cuba) – for this cocktail. Results are excellent. The Ace of Clubs Cocktail has rich, aromatic rum taste with unusual sweet aftertaste. Few drops of Angostura bitters on the top works well and must.
