A cocktail is a style of mixed drink. Originally a mixture of distilled spirits, sugars, water, and bittersb, the word has gradually come to mean almost any mixed drink containing alcohol. A cocktail today usually contains one or more types of liquor and flavorings and one or more liqueurs, fruit juices, sugar, honey, water, ice, soda, milk, cream, herbs, bitters, etc.
Cocktails are made with gin, whiskey, rum, and especially vodka. Many cocktails traditionally made with gin, such as the gimlet, or the martini, or Collins are now made with vodka.Romantic Road
This time i want to introduce the Scorpion, i still remembered the time while i worked in a Bar. But nobody order this kind of Cocktail, so i never got a chance to learn how to make it.
The Scorpion is one of those popular tropical rum drinks that taste great and pack an intoxicating punch. This potent cocktail is made of both light and dark rums, brandy and triple sec, with the bonus flavoring of orange juice (freshly squeezed is best). This drink will make a splash at any summer celebration or anytime you feel like escaping to the tropics.
