Blue Bird

Some people think that blue cocktail is not serious. It unworthy of real imbiber, but I think different :) For example, this cocktail is very serious – 2 oz of gin is no joke!

Blue Bird

60 ml gin
30 ml Cointreau
30 ml blue curacao
1-2 dash Angostura bitter
Shake. Cocktail glass, garnish with lemon twist and cherry.

It is potent aperitif with bright bitter-sweet taste.

Tequila Fresa

Another beautifull strawberry cocktail for St. Valentins Day (or 8 March Day…).
