Creating Cocktails Recipes with Vodka

Article by Mitch Ross

Clear and having a similar smell as distilled water, vodka has small, unique taste of its own, making it the flawless additive for developing diverse cocktail recipes. When applying vodka into cocktails, it lifts the taste of other ingredients. Vodka is often impregnated with other tasty concoctions like berries, spices even chocolate.

The beginning of Vodka came from Eastern Europe. Being first documented in the 9th century, it was not until the 20th century that Vodka gained its popularity. Vodka can be poured, mixed, stirred or even shaken into cocktails, making them is just as easy as it is to drink them. It is no surprise that vodka is used in over 25% of all alcoholic drinks. With a vivid imagination, vodka can be used to make unique, offbeat cocktails that people will remember.

Just because, Vodka has little taste, does not mean that people can not tell the difference in quality. Mixing a cocktail with poor quality vodka can ruin the taste, leaving a dissatisfied guest. You do not have to spend the most for a bottle of vodka, but you should not spend the least either. Purchase something in the middle will not affect the taste of the cocktails.

An essential component of developing cocktails with vodka is learning about other ingredients. Developing cocktail recipes is not the same without other components. If, for some reason, your vodka lacks the right spark, you can improve its gusto by adding seasoning. Use fresh elements like chili peppers, strawberries, apples, lemons, limes, herbs or even chocolate. Just add the item into the vodka bottle and place it in a dark corner for at least a month. The longer it sits the stronger the taste of the ingredient will be.

Something else you should know about making cocktails with vodka is to make sure that the glassware temperature is close to what the cocktail is. In other words, a cold cocktail is served in a cold glass and vise versa. To get a cold glass, place the glass in a container with ice or a freezer for a short time. To make a glass warmer, run warm water over it before pouring the cocktail.

No matter if this is the first time you have made cocktails, or you have been doing this for years, using vodka to create new cocktails will help immensely. The only thing you need is to dream of something, then make it. Everyone will come back for more.

Add An Extra Splash Of Deliciousness To Your Cocktails With Your Soda Siphon

Soda siphons are one of the most important tools of a professional bartender nowadays. They make use of this brilliant gadget to come up with real fizzy cocktails and drinks. If you own a small bar or planning to organize a small gathering at home, you will definitely need this.

The soda siphon can also be used as a cream whipper. Basically, this is a pressurized container which introduces carbon dioxide to whatever ingredient you put into it. Because you only need this tool, you need not buy too many bottles of soda or carbonated water. This will definitely help lessen your expenses and allow you to buy more important ingredients.

Using this is pretty easy. First of all, you need to mix all the ingredients of your cocktail inside the container. Make sure that everything is already cooled because the low temperature is a significant factor for that extra fizz in your drink.

Give it a short shake so that everything will get mixed well.

It is up to you how carbonated you want your drink to become. You will hear the gas (carbon dioxide) getting dispensed in the container. Remember to shake the bottle for a few seconds to let the gas circulate through the liquid. The drink should be cold so that it will be refreshing. If you have to put it in the refrigerator for a while, do so.

Virgin Bloody Mary and Tom Collins are made even more delectable when the club soda you added is freshly carbonated. Take note of one very important note. If you need to mix the cocktail in a blender or with a spoon, spend only a few seconds doing it. The carbon dioxide may evaporate and leave the drink ‘flat’ and not too refreshing.

Since this amazing bartender gadget can be used as a cream whipper, you can now top your beverages with whipped cream as well. There are several traditional cocktails that were made extra special with the use of the soda siphon.

Instead of putting water or soda inside the chamber, you will need to pour in the desired amount of whipping cream. You can even add any fruit flavoring or liqueur. Although not necessarily needed, a teaspoon of sugar may also be sprinkled in as well.

Eggnog, Javameister and Hot Chocolate Mudslide are only a few cocktails which you can top off with cream. Use the cream whipper to make the cream stiff and fluffy. Add it after you have mixed the drinks and poured it into one of those nice cocktail glasses.

If you aren’t too particular with different liquors mixing inside the container, you will really need just one soda siphon. Besides, you will need to wash the bottle with warm water before you use it. However, if you do own a bar, it is best to have more than one ready at your disposal. This way, you can make and serve different cocktails quickly and efficiently.
