FRED’S TOP TIPS
It’s all about the right ingredients, the tools of the trade and stylish presentation…
1 Buy fresh lemons and limes and squeeze your own juice. Concentrated juice lacks the intensity of flavour.
2 Investing in a good spirit measure is vital as it’ll help you get the balance of each cocktail just right.
3 Always use ice. If you’re having a party, buy a few bags in advance so you don’t run out.
4 Invest in some nice glassware that will work for more than one drink. Cut-crystal rocks glasses are versatile.
