Cocktails Essay

830 words - 4 pages


Een cocktail is mengsel van twee of meer (alcoholische) dranken. Verschillende smaken worden bij elkaar gebracht op een speciale manier, bijvoorbeeld door ze in een shaker te schudden of in een blender te mixen.

Het gamma aan cocktails en mixdrankjes is enorm, ze bestaan in alle kleuren, met of zonder alcohol, met ijsblokjes, met vers fruit, met honing.

Veel gebruikte dranken zijn onder andere gin, wodka, rum, bourbon, apricot brandy, Cointreau, Pisang Ambon, amaretto, cachaça, curaçao, citroen- en sinaasappelsap, sodawater en grenadine.

Als je het woord “cocktail” letterlijk vertaalt, kom je op de samenstelling “haan” en “staart”. Dit zou de volgende theorie kunnen bevestigen. Een Ierse kroegbazin, Betsy Flanagan zou graag jurken gemaakt van de gekleurde veren van vechthanen gedragen hebben. Ze schonk een Franse klant een lekker drankje in. De klant was zo onder de indruk van het drankje (of de kroegbazin), dat hij het glas hief en riep: “Vive le cocktail!”.


Enkele klassieke cocktails met hun belangrijkste ingrediënten zijn:
• Bloody Mary (wodka, tomatensap, worcestersaus, peterseliezout, tabasco)

Een variant hierop is het gebruik (of de noodzaak) dat de consument er zelf nog iets mee doet alvorens het op te drinken: Zie Tequila Slammer
2 Voor het stirren (roeren) worden de ingrediënten in een mengglas met een barlepel geroerd en daarna overgegoten in het glas. Hierbij is het noodzakelijk dat de dranken zich makkelijk vermengen.
3 Bij shaken (schudden) worden de dranken in een cocktailshaker met ijsblokjes geschud...
