In order to make a cocktail using a new or unusual ingredient, you first need to gather some supplies.

How to make a cocktail using a spirit you haven’t used before
If you’re new to cocktails, it can be daunting trying to figure out which spirit to use in your drink. Thankfully, Jay Salvatore has some tips on how to make any cocktail using a spirit that you may not be familiar with. In this section, we will look at how to make a Margarita using tequila, a Pina Colada using coconut rum, and a Sazerac using rye.
To make a Margarita, start by mixing together 1 oz of tequila, 1 oz of Triple Sec, and 1 oz of lime juice in a shaker. Shake well and strain into a cold glass.
To make a Pina Colada, mix together 1 oz of coconut rum, 1 oz of pineapple juice, and 1 oz of lime juice in a shaker. Shake well and strain into a cold glass.
To make a Sazerac, mix together 1 oz of rye whiskey, 2 dashes of Peychaud’s bitters, and 1 dash of absinthe in a shaker. Shake well and strain into a cold glass.
How to make a cocktail that is dangerous but delicious
There are certain cocktails that, while considered dangerous to make, can be very delicious and entertaining to drink. Jay Salvatore, author of the book “The Drunken Masterclass: How to Make Every Cocktail”, discusses some of the more dangerous cocktails and how to make them safely.
When making a cocktail, it is important to know your limitations. For example, if you are making a Margarita, make sure that you use only Tequila and lime juice; any other additions (such as sugar or salt) would add a lot of unnecessary flavor and might increase the risk of dangerous intoxication. Salvinor also cautions against playing around too much with spirits; while many drinkers enjoy experimenting with different types of drinks, it is important to remember that not all combinations are safe. For example, mixing Bacardi 151 Proof rum with Lillet Blanc may result in an extremely dangerous drink.
However, even if you stick to safer cocktails, there is still plenty of opportunity for fun and excitement in the world of cocktails. For example, using a spirit such as feijoa liqueur in a Blue Hawaiian might give the drink a refreshing and fruity twist. Be sure to experiment and have some fun with your drinks – you might be surprised at how much you can enjoy them!
