Do you wonder what to get for a Valentine’s Day gift for your favorite mixologist? Do you have a favorite mixologist? I know I sure do, it’s my spouse!
We have taken up cocktails with a vengeance over the past few years. There are so, so many different flavor combinations that can be made from similar ingredients.
There are colours to play with, bright, vibrant and enticing. There’s dark, rich and alluring, too.
But how do you go about tasting and testing without spending $50 per bottle, to add just one flavour to your collection?
I mean, I still have most of a bottle of lychee liquer from when I was in university, as a quarter of a shot is plenty more than enough to deliver a very distinct flavour profile to any drink it even comes near.
If you want to grow your bar, without dropping huge chunks of cash to discover you don’t even like something, you can get samples sent your way before plunging into a full-size commitment to a bottle.
