4 Cocktails to Fascinate Others
By Yoo Jay Reporter, Senior of Material Science and Engineering
What are the things that you'd most like to experience right after entering university? You probably look forward to dating someone who is your type. Do you have someone to date with? If you are in a relationship with someone, after having a meal together, why don’t you also go into a cocktail bar and create a romantic mood? You can give off your charm by ordering a cocktail that suits your vibe. Here are some cocktails that might suit you.
1. For Chic People
The cocktail that goes well with chic people is Dry Martini, famous for the lines in the James Bond, 007 movie series “Vodka Martini, shaken, not stirred.” Dry martini, called the King of Cocktails, is made from three ingredients: 60ml of Gin, 10ml of Dry Vermouth, and green olives. Bitter martini is a cocktail that gives you a feeling of the harmony of the Gin and Vermouth flavor. So, I would recommend you to stir it before drinking. In opposition to this, Kingsman’s main character Eggsy, orders a gin martini, and says, “Martini. Gin, not vodka, obviously. Stirred for 10 seconds while glancing at an unopened bottle of vermouth.” As the scene in the movie shows, Martini is a cocktail that is a symbol of the suited gentleman. So, if you go to a bar and order a martini, the other people will see you as a gentleman, as seen in a Hollywood movie.
2. For Cute People
The cocktail that goes well with cute people is Pina Colada. It literally means stained pineapple. The sweet and mild taste of Pina Colada is made from 50ml of White Rum, 30ml of Coconut Cream, and 50ml of Fresh Pineapple Juice. This refreshing scent of pineapple and sweet coconut will add to your cute charm. ‘Escape’ (The Pina Colada Song) by Rupert Holmes, took first place on the Billboard chart of the 70’s, included the lyrics “If you like Pina coladas and gettin’ caught in the rain.” I recommend this cuteness cocktail for you.
3. For Bewitching People
The cocktail that goes well with a bewitching person is Cosmopolitan, which means global. Carrie, the main character of the American drama ‘Sex & The City,’ likes drinking this. Many women took her as their role model and went into bars to order this cocktail as they followed her behavior. Since then, people from all over the world have enjoyed drinking it, and Cosmopolitan has become a worldwide cocktail, the same as its name. It can help you to beef up your enchanting vibe, reminiscing of Carrie. The sweet Cosmopolitan is made from 40ml of Vodka Citron, 15ml of Cointreau, 15ml of Fresh Lime Juice, and 30ml of Cranberry Juice. Be careful, because you may experience a blackout if you drink too much of this beautiful red, sweet cocktail, but I recommend this cocktail for you who have an irresistible charm.
4. For Passionate People
The cocktail that goes well with a passionate person is ‘Kiss of fire’, which is as intense as its name. Its color of scarlet red looks like the burning sun. Kiss of fire, the sweetness hidden in the bitterness, is made from 30ml of Vodka, 15ml of Sloe gin, 15ml of Vermouth, and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. This cocktail was inspired by the popular Georgia Gibbs song, ‘Kiss of Fire.’ I recommend this to energetic people who can relate to the song lyrics: “I must go on, I’m on this road of no returning and though it burns me and it turns me into ashes, my whole world crashes without your kiss of fire.”
Now you know about these cocktails, you can choose the ones that best suit you. You can enter a cocktail bar, order with confidence and succeed in impressing and attracting people with your cocktail knowledge. Then, you can hopefully have a good time with the person you love.
