The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A refreshing tasting watery vegetable used in some cocktails like the Gin and Tonic. Some people say cucumbers taste better pickled.
A nectarine fruit used in some cocktails, like the Billini.
Also know as corn liquor or white lightning, this is a type of whiskey that must be made from at least 80% corn, and requires no aging.
A sweetened liqueur made from natural and/or artifical ginger flavoring. Used in many cocktails.
A vodka based pomegranate flavored liqueur, some brands also add tequila; 17% ABV.
A yellow citrus fruit. The peel is often used as a garnish while the juice incorporated into the drink for a tart flavor profile (citric acid).
Muddle the lime juice and cucumber wheels in a cocktail shaker. Add remaining ingredients with ice and shake. Strain into a Collins glass filled with cracked ice. Garnish with a lemon peel or a lemon wedge. #muddle #shake #ontherocks
