To make great cocktails you don't need much. There are a few basic piece of equipment you need and can buy cheaply in many great looking collections. You will need: Mixing spoon, muddler, shaker, strainer and measuring cups. 

When shopping for cocktail supplies, keep it affordable and simple. Buy vodka and rum but don't get the best stuff since your mixing it with other flavours. A few fruits make a beautiful garnish and enhance any cocktails look and taste. Finally add soda water, a few mixing juices and a bag of ice. These few things combined with a sugar syrup can combine into hundreds of amazing cocktails!

There are 3 main methods of cocktail making. Build, stir and shake.

  • Build - add ingredients one at a time to a glass

  • Stir - Build and stir it at the end to blend the flavours

  • Shake - Add ingredients to a shaker and shake and strain into glass

If you want to add a little flair there are some simple techniques that add another flavour or dimension to your cocktail making.

  • Burnt peel - squeeze the oil out of orange or lemon skin over a flame and have it land in the cocktail. Burnt orange is a popular way to spice up a cocktail.

  • Frosted glasses - Add ice and water to a glass while you prepare the cocktail. it will chill the glass and add a fogging effect.
