There are easy-to-drink cocktails, and then there are some daring concoctions which aren’t for the faint-hearted. So for those of you who like to work hard and party harder, here’s a list of some not-so-light blends that possess a deep and complex flavour and a brain rattling effect. Take a look.
This smooth, fruity cocktail is one of the most potent out there. With high alcohol and sugar content, this drink was concocted in the 1930s by Donn Beach (a revered restaurant owner) who kept the ingredients of the cocktail top secret until it was published in a book. As per the original recipe, the drink is made out of three different types of Rum, Falernum, Pernod, lime juice, Angostura bitters, Grenadine and Don’s Mix (grapefruit juice and cinnamon syrup). If you’re one of those who can handle their drinks, you should try this.
Flaming Ferrari Cocktail
This flaming drink is now one of the most popular cocktails across the globe, served in a Martini Glass or an Old Fashioned Glass. A fiery concoction made out of colourless spirits such as the Vodka, Tequila, and White Rum among others, the sweetness of this concoction is usually attributed to Grenadine syrup, while an addition of Blue Curacao gives it a bluish hue. There are some bartenders who skip the Curacao in favour of some coconut cream that also adds sweetness to the mix. Due to its high alcohol content, bartenders suggest one glass is enough to turn your night into a memorable one.
Developed by a Hainanese bartender in the year 1915 (in Singapore), this poison was initially called the Gin Sling. Although its alcohol content is low, its sugar content is very high making it a potent mix. And according to Ram, a bartender, in an interview with The Hindu, “It takes more than 30 attempts to make the perfect Sling”. It contains a generous amount of Gin, Grenadine, Benedictine, and Cointreau and is served in a tall glass.
Saat Rasta at Monkey Bar
Another popular cocktail, Saat Rasta is a deadly combo of Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila, Jagermeister, Absinthe, Triple Sec, Beer, Ginger Juice and Coriander. Available at Monkey Bar (the outlet), we think you should only order it on a weekend because you may not be able to wake up on time for work the next day.
