There are certain things to be practised well before getting into the actual process of cocktail making. Ensure the below prerequisites are properly arranged before you are good to go.
- Gear up Your Cocktail Tools
Keep the cocktail shakers in handy to avoid any stress during the cocktail preparation. These are obligatory bar accessories for blending the cocktails like a pro and, are very helpful to the hosts too. Practice once before the previous night of the party especially if you have a two-piece cocktail shaker. Other accessories that need to be stocked in the bar are jiggers, blenders, corkscrew, bottle openers, and ice tongs.

- Have Some Seasonal Fruits
Make it a point to buy fruits of many kinds that are fresh. These can help to make some lemon or grape juice for your guests and serve them as starters.
- Stock Up Sugary Items
Stock sugary items like honey, sugar syrup always in your cupboard to give a sweet touch to your homemade cocktails. Add them, in the end, to give a savory taste instead of running down here and there to grab them at the time of actual need.
It is ok to serve cold drinks and beverages at the party to the guests as they would prefer them more.
Warm drinks would be boring for the guests. So, get some ice bags with cubes that are readily available in the supermarkets. Keep them accessible to the table so that the guests can help themselves by adding it if needed. Store as much ice as possible as this is the best way to excite your guests and throw an awesome cocktail party.
- Maintain the Balance
Making a cocktail involves so much professionalism as it requires a balance to be achieved between sweetness and sourness.
Too much sourness may spoil the taste of the drink. In case you are uncertain, add too much sweetness to the drink as it can be managed with the sugary taste. Sweetness is more convincing than sourness.
- Avoid too Much of Eggs
Adding too much of eggs spoils the taste of the drink. You need to ensure you use only 10-15ml of the egg for every glass of alcohol so that it doesn’t overpower the taste of the drink.
- Have all the Barware Ready
Barware is important accessories to rock up the cocktail party for the bartenders with so much fun and frolic. Of which, glasses are very important to serve your drinks to attract the guests with an amazing look.
Some must-have glasses in your table are cocktail glasses, rocks glasses, and highball glasses.
- Make Use of Measuring Units
A professional bartender is someone who can be a great mixologist in blending the best amount of alcohol with juice with their vast experience that delivers the classic taste. If you are a beginner, use jiggers to measure and pour the alcohol into the glasses until you get to know better.
There are various sizes available in the market like 1 ounce, 1 and a half ounce to simplify your job.
- Blend the Mixture Well
After you mix the drinks it is important to shake it well to provide the desired taste to the guests. Shake actively for 30 seconds so that the mixture blends thoroughly and is good enough for serving. Hold the cap tight and, avoid having eye contact with the guests during this time to avoid any unexpected spill.
- Keep it Classy
