Bohemia Bar and Restaurant Manager, Dimitri Marqueteau, has suggested five simple recipes for making your own cocktails at home.
- Lanique: Lanique and Lime
Bohemia Bar’s signature drink, the lime’s bitterness is a great balance with the sweet Lanique tones.
Ingredients: 50ml Lanique; Crushed ice; Fresh lime juice; Quarter lime
Method: Pour the Lanique in a small glass filled with crushed ice. Pour in the fresh lime juice, stir and garnish with a quarter lime.
- Vodka: The Lemon Drop
The adult equivalent of your favourite childhood sweets, and bound to impress anyone with a sweet tooth.
Ingredients: 50ml Vodka; 50ml Lemon Juice; 1 tablespoon Sugar; Lemonade
Method: Shake all of the ingredients together with ice apart from the lemonade. Pour into a martini glass and top up with lemonade.
- Gin: The Gimlet
A classic cocktail which was originally served to sailors to combat scurvy, and now it is a gin lover’s drink of choice.
Ingredients: 50ml Gin; 25ml Lime cordial or fresh-squeezed Lime juice; wedge of Lime
Method: Shake ingredients together with ice cubes and strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
- Rum: The Cuba Libre a Casa
The perfect cocktail to elevate a simple Rum and Coke!
Ingredients: 50ml Dark Rum; Coca-Cola; 1 Lime
Method: Squeeze the lime into a highball glass over ice. Add the double shot of rum and then fill the glass with Coca-Cola. Stir and add a quarter of the lime.
- Tequila: Tequila Lime Spritzer
The spritzer is a refreshing, zingy cocktail if you’re looking for something sour.
Ingredients: 50ml Tequila; Lemonade; Sparkling water; Lemon or Lime
Method: Pour the tequila over ice in a tall glass and top with lemonade and sparkling water. Add more lemonade for a sweeter flavour. Garnish with a slice of lemon or lime.
