The Rise, Fall and Revival of Absinthe

14 Oct 2021

Few alcoholic drinks have histories as enjoyable as that of Absinthe, an anise-flavored spirit popular in 19th-century Europe. In 1915, Absinthe was banned in several countries amid unfounded claims that drinking it led to deviant behavior. It was re-legalized in the 1990s, however, and remains a popular spirit today.

Five Popular Drinks

30 Jul 2021

If you’ve ever wondered what’s in some of those colorful drinks you see people enjoying when you go out, we’ve chosen a few that are popular right now and attempt to demystify them for you.

Most Popular Cocktails

No article on popular drinks would be complete without two well-known classics. These have remained popular for many years and continue to be.

Old fashioned

This is the first and still the most popular cocktail in North America. You can make this for yourself and impress your guests at home with this simple recipe:

2 ½ oz bourbon
A couple of drops of Angostura bitters
A sugar cube
Ice cubes
A Maraschino cherry and an orange slice for garnish

The key is to “muddle” or crush the sugar with the bitters in a glass and then rotate it so that the mixture coats the glass before adding the rest of the ingredients. Then give it a gentle stir, garnish and enjoy. How nice to take a drink while you think about your forex trading.

Dry martini (shaken, not stirred)

1 ½ oz dry gin
¼ oz dry vermouth
1 or 2 ice cubes
Green olives: usually 3, but it’s your choice

Combine the gin, vermouth, and ice in a cocktail shaker and give it a good shake. This has to be the most entertaining part of creating cocktails. Pour into martini glasses and garnish with olives.

You can easily mix cocktails at home. A little imagination can adapt to just about anything - be sure to use a variety of glasses and garnishes and don’t make them too sweet.

Healthier drinks

With the focus on our lifestyle choices causing a shift to healthy, sustainable, socially responsible products and behaviors, the popularity of drinks has swung to reflect this.

You can also make nearly all of the well-known cocktails without alcohol. Known as virgin cocktails, these are becoming more popular as more people control their alcohol consumption and make healthier choices.

Of course, this doesn’t always work; it’s hard to imagine a dry martini with no alcohol. Despite this, with some unusual glasses, plenty of ice, a selection of your favorite garnishes, and your creativity, you’ll be surprised with what you can shake up.

Cranberry Sparkler

6 oz cranberry juice
juice of one lime
soda/sparkling water
Serve in a tall glass


Traditionally made with chopped fruit, wine, and a little brandy or liqueur, you may not even notice the difference if you omit the brandy and use only half the wine and half fruit juice, or just use non-alcoholic cider.

Fermented drinks

Water Kefir is an immune system-boosting probiotic beverage. It can be flavored with anything you like. Apart from the benefits to your immune system, it’s beneficial to anyone with digestive problems. It’s also sugar-free, as any sugar is used up in the fermentation process. This makes it low carb too. It’s also gluten-free and vegan. Best of all, you can make it at home.

Make the World's First Cocktail

2 Jul 2021

Whilst many make their claims own, the most compelling argument for the world's first-ever cocktail is the "Sazerac Cocktail", allegedly invented in 1838 by New Orleans apothecary owner Antoine Peychaud. The drink is named after its main ingredient, Sazerac French brandy, and plays off a sweet taste against a spicy bite.
