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.
- 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
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.
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!
- 40 ml tequila
- 20ml lime juice
- 30ml grapefruit juice
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!
- 60 ml Nikka Whisky
- 15ml yuzu juice
- 15ml lime juice
- 15ml agave syrup
- Egg white
Dry shake all ingredients then shake again with ice and double strain in chilled coupe glass. Garnish with matcha tea powder.
Tips & explanations
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.
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.
To double strain, place your regular strainer in/on the cocktail shaker and hold a fine mesh strainer by its handle over your glass.
