Making drinks may seems as simple as throwing a few ingredient­s into a shaker and pouring the resulting mix into a fancy glass, but authentic cocktail creation requires a little more effort than that. A cursory knowledge of common words and phrases can help you become a master mixologist in no time. • Bitters: Made from herbs and berries, bitters can add a diverse flavor profile to your cocktails and balance out sweeter drinks. • Boston shaker: Device used to make shaken drinks and chill them thoroughly. • Flute: A long, narrow glass used to serve champagne and sparkling wines. The shape of the flute ensures bubbles fizz for as long as possible. • Collins glass: A tall glass with a heavy base, quite similar to and often interchang­eable with a highball glass. • Dirty: A word typically associated with martinis. Dirty refers to serving the drink with an olive and some vinegarbas­ed brine. A 1. HOST A SIMPLE HOUSEWARMI­NG PARTY. cross the country, people are packing boxes, hiring trucks and moving short and long distances. The U. S. Census Bureau says that around 12 percent of the population moves each year. According to a survey by DuProprio, a Quebec- based real estate advice site, 28 percent of Canadians feel the need to move every five years. Surprising­ly, DuProprio also found that 14 percent of owners wish they could move every year. and also on municipal websites. Find out where the locals go on weekends or during the week. Communitie­s may take pride in certain activities. It’s easier to get a feel for the neighborho­od by spending time with the locals. Get to know immediate neighbors by hosting a party. After some unpacking is done, host a simple get- together for people who live nearby. Ask if neighbors can help out by bringing chairs. Offer light refreshmen­ts and some type of activities for children. The event doesn’t have to be extensive, just long enough to engage in some conversati­on and introduce yourself. • Dry: Like wine, cocktails can be sweet or dry. Cocktails that are dry tend to include dry vermouth. • Frosted glasses: 4. BECOME ACTIVE IN YOUR NEW COMMUNITY. Glasses that are kept in the freezer so cocktails can be served very cold. This technique works well for martinis and drinks that include gin, vodka and/or vermouth. HOW TO Find a volunteer organizati­on or join a local house of worship. Check with the local chamber of commerce for ways to get involved or clubs to join. Like- minded people can make living in a new locale more enjoyable. 2. WALK AND DRIVE AROUND. • Highball: A highball is a spirit served on ice with carbonated soda as a mixer. Scout out the area by driving around and making note of shopping centers, parks and places of interest. Schedule times when you will get out of the car and walk around on foot, which makes it easier to take everything in. Use a website like Walkscore. com to find places within walking distance of your new home. Bring the dog along. Dogs can be great ice breakers with new neighbors. The main reasons people move are expansion of the family, a career change, retirement, empty nest situations, or when moving is more practical than large- scale home renovation­s. While some people stick close to previous home locations, a 2015 American Community Survey found approximat­ely 16.9 million people moved to a different county in 2015. • Infusion: Spirits that have a special flavoring or ingredient added to them are known as infusions. 5. DINE OUT ONCE A WEEK. If budget allows, try a new neighborho­od eating establishm­ent each week to get a lay of the land. You’ll identify hot spots and hidden gems and will also be able to mingle with the community. An app such as Open Table can help you find places to eat nearby. • Mixers: Mixers are liquids added to hard drinks. They include fruit juices, sodas and tonic water. Whether a move is across county lines or overseas, it can take some time to acclimate to a new neighborho­od. These tips can help anyone get acquainted with their new surroundin­gs and make friends in the process. Neat: • In the world of cocktails, “neat” refers to a single spirit or liqueur served on its own without ice, water or any other ingredient­s. 3. CHECK OUT COMMUNITY BLOTTERS.
