Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR KITCHEN -

Round out your bar cart with th­ese in­ter­na­tional elixirs.

PISCO

This Peru­vian brandy shines when in­cor­po­rated into a drink like a Pisco Sour (left).

SOJU

South Korea’s most pop­u­lar drink has a sub­tle flavour and a low al­co­hol level, so it pairs well with food.

MESCAL

Te­quila’s smoky Mex­i­can cousin brings com­plex­ity and depth to cock­tails.

AB­SINTHE

One sip of this high-proof Swiss spirit will send shiv­ers up your spine. Try rins­ing a cock­tail glass with some to add a fun di­men­sion to drinks.

LILLET BLANC

This French apéri­tif (predin­ner drink) tastes best with a twist of cit­rus and a splash of soda.

ANGOSTURA BITTERS

Pro­duced on the small is­land of Trinidad, this herb-and-spice-in­fused brand of bitters is the key in­gre­di­ent in drinks around the globe like old-fash­ioneds and Man­hat­tans.
