3 Jazzy Cocktails

We want to celebrate the international jazz day with some cocktails that are perfect to enjoy a day full of good music.

Every year on the 30th of April we should celebrate with amazing music and even better cocktails.

If you feel overwhelmed by the techniques or terms that we are using check out the free course on bartending. 

Let’s get to it! 


Jazz hands

Ingredients 

  • 50 ml whiskey 
  • 25 ml orange liqueur 
  • 25 ml Campari
  • 15 ml cranberry juice 
  • Garnish: Orange wheel, cinnamon stick, cranberries

Tools 

  • Mixing glass
  • Jigger(to measure) 
  • Collins glass
  • Cocktail strainer
  • Tea strainer

The how to 

Before preparing your cocktail add to your serving glass all your garnish alternatively with the ice.

In your mixing glass add the whiskey, cranberry juice, orange liqueur and Campari. Stir well to get it chilled and mixed. Double strain your mix over ice in your glass.

Jazz it up

Ingredients 

  • 50 ml gin

Tools 

  • Collins glass
  • Shaker
  • Cocktail strainer
  • Tea strainer
  • Jigger


The how to

In your shaker add the gin, egg white, lime juice and passion fruit syrup. Shake well without ice to create a foamy texture.  After the foamy texture is achieved add ice and shake well again, until chilled.

Double strain the mix in your glass with no ice. 

Slowly top the glass with your lime soda. Make sure to pout through the middle of the glass to create a tunnel. Through the tunnel add the 2-3 drops of syrup.

The how too
