Serving Tips
  • Instead of serving the drinks in a highball glass, serve in unusually shaped drinking glasses. Place the drinks on colorful coasters.
  • Give the glasses a frosted edge as you dip the rim in lemon juice and then in refined sugar.
  • You can also add some colorful decorations to finish the overall look for the drink, such as drink umbrellas, paper flowers, sparklers, and colored swizzle sticks.
  • Instead of putting big chunks of ice cubes, substitute crushed ice. The appearance of the drink from outside the glass will be fantastic.
  • To finish the garnished look, add cocktail sticks to twist or skewer fruits so that it stays on the rim of the glass.

You can definitely increase or decrease the quantity of alcohol for the drink. Enjoying this drink to the fullest means making it one of your own and adding your own unique twist to it. Have fun!
