Create irresistible cocktails at home like a pro.

Three recipes created by Nic & Tim from The Buckriders© to do at home, right now!

I met those two some few years ago in a wedding, no surprise I know. While we were discussing, they literally create a yummy drink with what they had, and I’ve been fool enough to believe and taste the mixture. I have been blown away. It was delicious, fresh and surprising.I am beyond excited to be able to offer you those three recipes.  To know what to expect, I attached a photo of the recipes.

COCKTAIL #1 | SMOKED MANHATTAN

A smokey cocktail is delicious, but it also looks amazing! Of course, you can also make this drink without the smoke.

Ingredients

  • 60 ml Woodford bourbon
  • 30ml Red vermouth (Carpano’s Antica Formula or Martini Rosso)
  • 1 bar spoon of maraschino cherry juice.

We use Luxardo or Armarena Fabbro

Method

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing glass or a jug filled with ice, stir for about 30 seconds and serve in a chilled coupe glass. Garnish with 1 or 2 maraschino cherries on a tooth pick.

Smoke

When smoking the drink, simply ignite a small pile of hickory wood and place a coupe glass directly over them. Allow to sit while you combine the drink.

COCKTAIL #2 | PALOMA

A delicious and refreshing cocktail you can drink any time of the year!

Ingredients

  • 40 ml tequila 
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 30ml grapefruit juice
Top with soda water

 

Method

Shake all ingredients except the soda water and double strain in a collins glass filled with ice, garnish with a slice of grapefruit and a salt rim.

COCKTAIL #3 | MAZU

We created this Asian inspired cocktail in 2018 and it has been one of our favorite drinks ever since!

Ingredients

  • 60 ml Nikka Whisky
  • 15ml yuzu juice
  • 15ml lime juice
  • 15ml agave syrup
  • Egg white

Method

Dry shake all ingredients then shake again with ice and double strain in chilled coupe glass. Garnish with matcha tea powder.

Tips & explanations

Shaker

If you don’t own a shaker then use a kilner jar, for example, or any container with a tight lid. Simply add the ingredients with ice and shake for about 10 seconds.

Bar spoon

A bar spoon is a long-handled spoon used in bartending for mixing.

Chilling a glass

While you combine the ingredients, you can either fill a glass with ice and discard the ice before serving, or wet a glass and place it in the freezer.

Double strain

To double strain, place your regular strainer in/on the cocktail shaker and hold a fine mesh strainer by its handle over your glass.
