How to prepare:

- Everything must ice and ice-cold, except the liquors.

- Fill the freezer with ice.

- Mix or shake with ice but do not pour the ice in the glass. Use a strainer.

- Use new ice for every cocktail.

- Crushed ice: take a small bag with ice and beat with a (meat) hammer to pieces.

- A cocktail can be mixed in 3 ways: stir in a blender, shake in shaker or mix in the glass.

- Squeeze: squeezes some lemon or orange into glass or shaker.

- Twist: garnish with a lemon peel.

- Dash: just a few drops (mostly the bitters).

- Jigger: 42 cc (=1 shot glass).

- Total cocktail quantity is always approximately 60 cc, the recipes use 1/2, 1/3, 2/3 etc.

- Care to have metric jiggers/messure pourers of 10 cc.

- Be careful with bitters in the recipes: predominating taste.
