While a new breed of mixologists continue to break the boundaries in the cocktail game, nothing – no matter how weird and wacky – will ever come close to the classics; the cocktails that our forefathers have passed down.
But the simplest of cocktails need to be made with precision – something the folk at Absolut know all too well. Behold, ye Absolut drinkers!
The Perfect Caipiroska
A variation of Brazil’s national cocktail, the Caipirinha – yes, they have a national cocktail – the vodka-infused Caipiroska is one of the most popular drinks in South America. Simple sweet, summery.
The Perfect Vodka Tonic
Only a fool would suggest that this classic pairing is easy to perfect – a top-notch barman once told us that drink-making is a science. And we believe him. He had eyes as blue as an azure Mykonos sky.
The Perfect Sea Breeze
Unlike a real, salty sea breeze, this is a cocktail that is all kinds of sweet and fruity thanks to the cranberry. Add the grapefruit and you have the perfect balance of sweet and bitter. See – it’s a science.
The Perfect Cosmopolitan
The cosmo; a cocktail so popular that a fragrance company in the drink’s place of birth, New York, has created a cologne that is meant to smell like the Cosmopolitan. True story.
The Perfect Piña colada
The national drink of Puerto Rico – these Latin countries are so cool – the Piña Colada is summer in a glass. Fun fact: ‘piña colada’ means ‘strained pineapple’. We’re drinking AND learning today.
The Perfect Bloody Mary
Is it a cocktail? Is it a gazpacho? It’s the Bloody Mary! Considered by many to be ‘the world’s most complex drinks’, the Bloody Mary is an Absolut (ha!) work of art.
Happy perfect and responsible drinking!
