How to Create Signature Cocktails and Specialty Drinks
Match Personalities: Every person has a unique personality and some people say so do alcohols, try to match them up as best as possible
Match Likes and Dislikes: do you like sweet or savoury? Fruit or vegetable? Light or dark alcohols? So you like herbs and spices? Be mindful of the event that you are having but have fun mixing and matching the things you like until you find the perfect drink for you.
Find a Purpose for Ingredients: don’t just add ten things you like hoping that it will all work out, make sure when selecting each ingredient that you know why you want to add it and know how it will help improve the drink.
Start With the Variants: if you have a favourite drink; try starting with it as a base and change out a few ingredients one at a time. This should keep your flavors balanced and you should be able to eliminate items that don't work with each recipe as you go.
Be Inspired: whatever the reason for the special drink, use your inspiration as your jumping off point, whether you are celebrating a season, holiday, corporate event or a wedding, use ingredients that make you think of those things. If you’re having a fall, wedding using apples, pumpkin, mulling spices, or pumpkin spice. Try seasonal items that make you think of certain times. You could also try making a warm drink or use special liquor that gives a warming sensation as you drink it such as whiskey.
Use Speciality Liquors: Instead of using the typical brand of alcohols, try using special or different brands. Although the base of all them are the same, each brand has their own added flavor and blends to give you different tastes to your drinks.
Consult a Professional: Sometimes it is beneficial to talk to someone that mixes drinks for a living to know what good combinations are and know which ones to avoid. A professional will know what questions to ask to know how to make the perfect combination for your event.
